“ Whatever you do in word or deed,
do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
Colossians 3:17

Physical Education and Sport

This page provides prospective parents and visitors with a glimpse into our curriculum.  Parents of Blue School pupils are provided with detailed guides to subject planning in the form of ‘Knowledge Organisers’ in Parent Zone.

General Statement

We have welcomed the Government’s announcement to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.

Please see the section on ‘Sports Premium’ for a breakdown of how this funding is spent and the impact it is making on the button below.

Excellent Opportunities

Pupils have excellent opportunities to experience and learn a wide range of sports through PE. Children receive at least an hour of PE lessons each week in line with government standards. During this time they learn about striking and fielding, invasion games and net and wall games as well as athletics, dance, gymnastics and swimming. 

Children have access to a wide range of resources and teachers often adopt a cross curricular approach to learning. As the children move up the school there are more opportunities to be involved in inter-school competitions and events.

Access to a Wide Variety of Resources

Children in Years 4 have weekly swimming sessions at Isleworth Swimming Pool, and children in Years 6 complete Cycling Proficiency Tests. Please see class pages for more information on these.

As with all subjects on the curriculum, each child’s achievements and attainment are assessed at the end of each unit. Additional support and challenges can be met through the numerous extra-curricular clubs provided via the extended learning curriculum. Children displaying a talent for a particular sport are encouraged to develop and improve their skills both within the school environment and at classes outside of school.

Throughout the school the standard of work and skills produced in PE is excellent which is reflected in the inter school competitions we enter, where we hold strong finishing positions. You can view our sports/ competitions gallery here
