Physical Education subject specific curriculum statement

Back to subject specific statements

At Marden Primary Academy, we aim to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport.  We listen to what our children say and try to provide them with a range of active experiences and clubs.


We use a range of strategies to assess what skills and knowledge the children have attained each module, such as:

Experience in PE should provide a depth of learning in a positive and engaging environment.   Basic underlying principles and skills will have been practised and opportunities to develop these into more complex processes.

Pupils will be confident to try new things and take risks. They will be able to make quick decisions and choices when planning tasks or performances. They will have a range of strategies for solving problems and show resilience to keep going when they find things difficult. Pupils will understand the benefits of working in different group dynamics. They will have the confidence to lead and support others. They will understand the importance of physical activity in a wider context and possess the skills and enthusiasm to develop their learning further.
