Physical Education

Vision Statement

Physical Education at St Edmund's will aspire 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. We are developing a culture, which improves academic achievement and the overall health and well being of our pupils, while enabling them to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities.  We hope to build resilience and embed values such as teamwork and respect, whilst simultaneously developing their skills and knowledge of sport.


Pupils are expected to undertake at least 2 hours of timetabled Physical Education lessons per week. This is delivered evenly between St Edmund's teaching staff and Sports development.

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.

Reception having a fantastic time during MiniMovers

Lower KS2

During spring 1, we developed the use of space and passing,  with our focus on handball. There were some extremely good skills on show in such a high paced sport. 

Some of our LKS2 pupils have been taking part in their swimming challenge during the Autumn term. Here they are, proudly holding their certificates after completion. 

Upper KS2

Basketball has been the focus of our PE curriculum during Autumn 2. This has seen pupils develop their fundamental skills and use these in a competitive environment. Pupils have shown some fantastic improvements.

UKS2 had a fantastic opportunity to take part in some Cricket taster sessions with Mr Shore from Lancashire Cricket Club. Some budding cricketers across the school, who are all looking forward to Spring 2's cricket lessons in PE.
