Physical Education at St Luke's

At St. Luke’s we are passionate about enabling children to remain physically active and learn a range of different skills. Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills and competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities by providing a broad and balanced curriculum with opportunities for all.



At St. Luke’s we strive to develop children’s enjoyment and interest in physical education. We aim to ensure that a full curriculum is planned and taught throughout school, whilst building on children’s prior knowledge and capabilities. At St. Luke’s we give children the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact in their own physical health and well-being. We want all children to experience a variety of sports and physical skills which will enhance life-long fitness. PE can promote self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and problem solving. It can teach children to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities.



At St. Luke’s we ensure that staff have a good, up to date knowledge of the curriculum and the content taught at each year group. We follow a specific long-term plan that develops and ensures progression and the enhancement of skills. Teachers involve all children in each lesson or activity and differentiate tasks appropriately. Misconceptions are addressed and children are encouraged to develop the skills learnt in previous year groups. Children are given regular verbal feedback throughout the lesson as well as pointers and support to progress skills.



At St. Luke’s teachers regularly assess children and upload data onto our assessment system ‘Depth of Learning’. Clear progress is demonstrated across the year groups using this system. We aim to ensure that children progress through year groups feeling ready to develop and build on their knowledge and skills. All children are given the opportunity to succeed and make good progress in PE. By the time children leave St. Luke’s they will have knowledge and skills surrounding a range of physical activities and understanding of the benefits of exercise.
