Curriculum Overview: Physical Education (PE)

At Leopold we provide a high quality physical education that inspires all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport, and other physically demanding activities.  We provide opportunities for our children to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.  At Leopold we also provide many opportunities for children to compete in competitive sport which helps them embed value like fairness and respect.

Our main aims at Leopold are

  • To develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.
  • To keep children physically active for sustained periods of time.
  • Engage in competitive sports and activities.
  • Lead active healthy lives.

Key Stage 1

During PE the children will develop fundamental movement skills, becoming increasingly competent and confident in areas such as agility, balance and co ordination.  The children will engage in competitive sport against themselves and others and learn the importance of working together as a team.

Pupils will be taught basic movements such as running, jumping throwing and catching. They will participate in team games developing simple tactics.  The children will also simple dances and movement to music.

Key Stage 2

During PE the children will continue to develop skills from key stage 1. They will develop an understanding of how to improve in different activities and how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

Pupils will be taught running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination.  They will apply basic skills in sports such as Football Basketball Tennis and Cricket and apply tactics for attacking and defending.  The pupils will perform dances and other movements to music and take part in a wide range of outdoor and adventurous activities.


Pupils in year 2 and 3 attend swimming lessons where they are taught to swim competently and confidently over a distance of at least 25 meters.  They also learn basic safe self rescue in water based situations.
