Subject Leader Curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact Overview

Subject: PE

Subject Leader: Steph Crossley

 The intent of our PE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the development of every child’s ability and achievement in the area of PE enabling them to know more about physical activity and keeping healthy, remember more about the physical activity they participate in and learn about and understand how to use and apply this knowledge to impact upon their own physical activity, participation and healthy lifestyle.


School has identified key intentions that drive our PE curriculum. At Fitzwilliam Primary School our PE curriculum intentions are:

Intention 1:           

To build a PE curriculum which enables children to develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities which results in pupils knowing more, remembering more and understanding how the knowledge and skills can be applied in their own physical activity and healthy lifestyle.


To design a curriculum with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding in physical education as set out in the National Curriculum so that children can reach and exceed their potential at Fitzwilliam Primary School and beyond.


Education Endowment Fund Research indicates: The overall impact of sports participation on academic achievement tends to be positive. Recent evidence from the UK suggests that sports participation can have a larger effect on, for example, mathematics learning when combined with a structured numeracy programme.

  • Clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum.

In P.E, children will study four areas of sport. These include: Gymnastics, Athletics, Games and Dance. Within P.E lessons, children will adopt many different roles such as a performer, coach, umpire and leader and explore many different outdoor activities.
