Physical Education


Physical Education at St Edmunds aspires to offer a rich, varied and inclusive curriculum that both, meets the expectations of the National Curriculum, and provides high quality opportunities for all pupils to undertake a wide range of physical activities, which may not be available in the wider community. Our pupils’ personal development is at the heart of everything we do: We are helping to develop a culture across school, which improves academic achievement and the overall health and well being of our pupils, whilst enabling them to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities.  Through the development of pupils’ skills, physical movement and knowledge of sport, we hope to: build resilience and independence; embed values such as teamwork and respect; develop communication and leadership skills.



If you would like to know more about the Physical Education curriculum at St Edmund's, please arrange an appointment with your child's teacher or Mr Warburton, or alternatively follow links on this page to the statutory information. 


Our P.E. lesson's this half term have been linked to our topic growing. Children have shown they can move confidently in a range of ways, showing awareness of the space around them. 
The children listened out for different sounds: each sound indicated a different action, either digging, skipping, sprinkling seeds or watering. They listened very carefully and carried out the instructions very well.
​Pupils also had to then pretend to be the plant growing. Twisting and turning and stretching as tall as they could. 

Lower KS2

LKS2 have made a fantastic start to their Look, run, avoid learning theme. They have competed 1 vs 1, considering how they can use movement skills to avoid defenders and how changing the space around them creates challenge. They then looked to use these skills, including identification of space and variation of speed and direction, during a competitive game. 


Year 1 and 2 have been enjoying learning to compete in small teams during different games in PE. They really enjoyed 'Treasure Island' and 'Rabbits and Foxes'. They practised their skills in moving with control and speed in these activities, whilst showing awareness of the space around them. Pupils have also looked at sending a range of equipment in a desired direction, whilst also tracking moving objects. 




Upper KS2

UKS2 have begun their Watch, move, connect learning theme, focusing on the Watch element. They have developed their awareness of visual cues, playing cooperatively and competitively. They have also been thinking creatively to develop their created games, ensuring sufficient challenge.
