Physical Education

Our aim is to deliver high quality PE lessons to all children. Through well planned and structured lessons following our long term PE overview we want to give the children the best chance to develop their skills & experiences of a wide variety of sports. We use 4 organising principles to guide pupils’ development: 

  • Being active and healthy 
  • Knowing and using tactics and skills 
  • Teamwork 
  • Evaluating own and others’ performance 

The PE Curriculum looks to cover a wide range of activities to allow a variety of skills to be learnt by the children.  Each term topics will change to ensure a wide curriculum is covered with topics relating back to when competitions are taking place to allow children the chance to showcase what has been learnt. This will also support and tie in with when there is inter & intra competition taking place on the school's behalf to allow the children the best chance to perform at their highest level.  

The PE curriculum at Gorefield Primary School consists of the following categories:  

  • Invasion games  

  • Net & Well 

  • Gymnastics, Athletics 

  • Striking & Fielding 

  • Outdoor Adventurous Activities  

Lessons in these categories are covered across the school year with the skills learnt in each topic being progressive as they move through school. Children will learn the basic skills required to play the sport so that they can develop this into game / match related play. They will also learn the rules and disciplines needed to take part in various sports & activities.  

In the 2020-21 Academic year, PE will be delivered by Specialist Sports Coaches. 


The school will seek opportunities to take part in inter-school sports tournaments. In the 2019-20 Academic Year, the local schools network will run half-termly tournaments in a variety of sports. This is led by coaches from Premier Sports. We will make particular efforts to identify competitions aimed at pupils with disabilities or on the SEND register.
