Physical Education

Warmsworth Primary School

Intent, Implementation and Impact Statement for Physical Education



At Warmsworth Primary School, Physical Education is an integral part of our curriculum and we strive to create a culture which aims to inspire an active generation to enjoy PE, encourage each other through teamwork and achieve highly.

We believe that through experiences and a broad, balanced and progressive curriculum tailored to cater for the needs of all children, they will continue to have the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for their engagement in physical activity, sport and PE.

Alongside the 2014 National Curriculum, it is our aim to develop:

  • Children who have the skills and knowledge to succeed in the 21st century.  
  • Children who have the skills to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.
  • Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities to build character and help to embed values such as fairness, respect and resilience.
  • Children who have the practical skills to use their PE knowledge in the wider world, outside of the context of a PE lesson and be able to apply these to sports teams in the local community and beyond.
  • Children who have developed transferable skills that they can apply in the wider world.
  • Children who are physically active for sustained periods of time to enable them to lead healthy and active lives as they progress into adulthood.
  • Children who are aspirational and ambitious with their sporting desires.
  • A curriculum that engages all children and provide them with the fundamental skills and knowledge to take care of their physical wellbeing as they progress into adulthood.



It is essential that all children receive high-quality first teaching in order to succeed. The knowledge and understanding of our teachers enables children to make progress in PE.

The key principles for our approach are:

  • Teachers reinforce an expectation that all pupils are capable of achieving high standards in PE.
  • The large majority of pupils progress through the curriculum content at the same pace. This is achieved by emphasising deep knowledge and through individual support and intervention.
  • Children are articulate in explaining and justifying their thinking when answering questions.
  • Children have opportunities and are taught to work both collaboratively and independently.
  • Children are able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

 We teach the requirements of the National Curriculum 2014 and beyond. Pupils gain understanding of the PE skills and knowledge relevant to their year group so that is it built upon in subsequent years and are given the opportunity to compete through inter and intra competitions.

We have strong links with the local secondary school and collaboratively fund inter and intra competitions between local schools. As a result, our children are successful in a wide variety of sports at a local and regional level.

Our long term map outlines the progression of skills from Foundation Stage through to Year 6. This is the basis for our well-sequenced and progressive curriculum.

Our weekly planning is based on our bespoke schemes of work which are tailored to the needs of our children. We use a variety of sport-specific resources throughout the school to ensure children are exposed to the first-hand experience of using the correct equipment for each sport.

Whilst we teach PE in progressive distinct domains (units of work) we recognise that PE is an interconnected subject. Therefore, we encourage children to make connections across fundamental movement skills, so they can become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others.  

Children also apply their PE across the curriculum, and particularly in Science, where relevant. We regard talk in PE as important and introduce sport-specific vocabulary in an age appropriate way.

We actively promote challenge for all children regardless of their prior attainment. All children will be challenged in their learning through different activities and tailored differentiation to ensure that all children can succeed. Children are provided with opportunities to develop a range of skills linked to sports including officiating, coaching and time-keeping. This provides the children an opportunity to succeed at different elements of sport which they may choose as a career later in life.

We provide interventions for all pupils as required. We ensure physical interventions are delivered as these impacts on children’s fine and gross motor skill development. This provides pupils with the opportunity to embed basic skills required to make accelerated progress. Pupils regardless of their ability are targeted for intervention if required.

Each half term, five after-school extra-curricular sporting clubs are run by our sports coach for children in Year 2 to Year 6. These clubs are always well attended and their focus changes based on the requests from the children.

 Through our teaching, we continuously monitor pupils’ progress against expected attainment for their age, making formative assessment notes where appropriate and using these to inform our teaching.  Summative assessments are made on a termly basis using the KPI’s. This data is analysed by the subject leader each term and target groups are then generated following this.

 We offer a tailored system of training that all members of staff can access. We complete staff confidence audits for both teaching staff and support staff. Following this feedback, we collate the information and provide support on a needs basis either through training in school or through accessing training from alternative providers. Regular updates are shared with teaching staff to ensure subject knowledge is always being developed and improved.

Physical Education Knowledge Progression

Curriculum Map Warmsworth Primary


Our children are observed to have the skills to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team and display fairness, respect and resilience.

Over 100 of our children across year 2 to year 6 are regularly involved in a variety of extra-curricular sporting after-school clubs each half term. Pupils feel empowered to share their suggestions for extra-curricular activities and these suggestions are added to the yearly plan for after-school clubs.

Our children are successful in both their PE lessons and in the wider world, with many of them being in the local dance clubs, gymnastics clubs, martial arts clubs, football, rugby and cricket teams and have participated in regional and national competitions and many have a desire to compete in a sporting capacity into their adult lives.

Our children know the importance of fitness and exercise which will support them in becoming healthy, active citizens of the 21st century.

This was a very successful event with our children finishing the day in 3rd place. We would like to congratulate year 5 for representing Warmsworth Primary in a fantastic manner, being professional and mature throughout the entire morning and competition.

Quotes from Noah, Rubee and Abe:

During the athletics competition, we competed against 2 other schools (Hilltop and Victoria) for a trophy and to have fun. The events were racing, jumping and throwing (it was tiring). Even though we came last, we still got a certificate which we were all grateful of. The best part of the day was challenging ourselves in all of the events because it made us feel more than just a class, it made us feel like a really hard-working team. We are looking forward to doing it again next year as year sixes.  



What is The Daily Mile?:

The aim of the Daily Mile is to improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age or personal circumstances.

It is a profoundly simple but effective concept, which any primary school can implement. Its impact can be transformational- improving not only the childrens’ fitness, but also their concentration levels, mood, behaviour and general wellbeing.

We want every child to have the opportunity to do a Daily Mile at primary school, and are now working to build a Daily Mile community with schools, local councils, sports bodies and other supporters in the UK and beyond.

The Daily Mile works:

The Daily Mile is successful because it is simple and free:

1 It takes place over just 15 minutes, with children averaging a mile each day.

2 Children run outside in the fresh air – and the weather is a benefit, not a barrier.

3 There’s no set up, tidy up, or equipment required.

4 Children run in their uniforms so no kit or changing time is needed.

5 It’s social, non-competitive and fun.

6 It’s fully inclusive; every child, whatever their circumstances, age or ability, succeeds at The Daily Mile.


PE and Sport Events 2020-2021:

Sports Week at Warmsworth Primary School

During the past year we have faced many challenges. However, the Sports Council, along with Mr Halstead, manged to create a safe and well-organised Sports Week at the end of the Summer 1 term.

During the entire Summer 1 Term children worked in their P.E lessons on the different field events they would take part in on Sports Day to earn points for their given countries.

In addition to this, children also practised the sprint race, egg and spoon race and the obstacle race which they would be taking part in on Sports Day against their peers.

Below you can see some of our Warmsworth Athletes in action and the results from each year group.
