Physical Education

VISION -Being Active at Lyppard Grange Primary School

At Lyppard Grange Primary School we believe that Physical Education (P.E.) plays a crucial role in children’s development. We recognise the importance that P.E. has on developing children’s life skills and are passionate about providing the opportunities to develop every child’s Physical Literacy both within our curriculum and outside of it. We hope that children leave our school with a passion for P.E. and sport that they can carry with them for the rest of their lives.



At Lyppard Grange, we aim to provide children with the opportunities to experience high-quality, fun physical education and involvement in a variety of sports that will lead to life-long participation. Research shows that having an active lifestyle not only supports physical development but also promotes healthy mental wellbeing which is why it is vital that children are exposed to health and fitness from an early age. We believe that P.E. supports children’s physical development but also builds life skills that will support them as they move through education and for the rest of their lives. We intend to provide children with the opportunities to take on roles that allow them to develop a number a of skills that will equip them for life such as: a team-player, a listener, a navigator, a supporter, a communicator and a leader.

confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and

coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive

(both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of

increasingly challenging situations.

Pupils should be taught to:

  • Master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as

developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of


  • Participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending.
  • Perform dances using simple movement patterns.

Key stage 2

Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use

them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement.

They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They

should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and

sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

Pupils should be taught to:

  • Use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination.
  • Play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending.
  • Develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics].
  • Perform dances using a range of movement patterns.
