Seascale Primary School

Aim High




At Seascale Primary School, we recognise the role our Physical Education curriculum (P.E) has in supporting the physical and mental health of our children. We strive to create a culture which aspires to motivate children to enjoy sport and physical activity through experiencing a range of different physical activities in a safe and supportive environment.

Our intention is to develop children’s knowledge, skills and vocabulary across a broad range of sporting and physical activities through high-level teaching and learning opportunities. Alongside promoting healthy life style choices, the need for a balanced diet, positive mental health through movement and mindfulness. and to embed life-long values such as, fairness and respect. We also want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, to learn to be part of a team and to embed life-long values of fairness and respect, whilst fostering our school values of Respect, Resilience and Curiosity.



The planned overview of teaching and learning is divided into units that cover key physical education topics, alongside clear progression documents, ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met. This is reviewed, adapted and can be flexible to meet the needs of the children. We use Rising Stars Champions Scheme to deliver much of our P.E curriculum. This provides opportunities to experience a balanced and varied curriculum, encouraging participation in a wide range of activities which include dance, gymnastics, yoga, swimming, invasion, striking, fielding and athletics.


PE is taught by teaching staff, this is enhanced by the use of professional coaches, who recognise the importance of physical education not only on physical health but emotional and mental well-being alongside academic attainment.  


Pupils have the opportunity to attend a variety of extra-curricular sporting clubs to further develop their skills delivered by teachers and specialist coaches. These are available to all pupils, those delivering sessions have the knowledge and skills to ensure that the sessions are inclusive to any pupil who wishes to attend.


Children are invited to attend competitive sporting events within the local area. This is an inclusive approach aiming to take all our KS2 children to events where they have the opportunity represent the school at a wide range of competitions.


At Seascale Primary School, sport and physical activity has a high profile which is embedded into the daily life of the school. As well as P.E lessons children also participate in The Mile a Day challenge, 5-a-day fitness, Go noodle, along with active playtimes.



Through the P.E curriculum and physical activity opportunities we provide, we equip our children with the necessary skills to take responsibility for their own health and fitness. They will hopefully grow up to live happy and healthy lives utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE. We link our physical health with our mental health and use this to encourage growth mind sets and well-being.


At Seascale Primary School, we monitor and measure the impact of our PE Curriculum through:

  • Pupil voice; discussions about their learning, pupil questionnaires, sports council meetings. 
  • Tracking and assessment of children’s understanding of the topic after the unit is taught.
  • Capturing images and videos of the children’s practical learning.
  • Celebrating achievements.
  • Attendance of extra-curricular activities both school and external to school related.



In PE we use the Rising Stars Champions programme to deliver our PE curriculum, however we teacher the health section through our PSHE and science programme.
