Physical Education is a compulsory part of the curriculum for all pupils at every Key Stage, from age four to 16. It is recommended that pupils receive a minimum of two hours curricular PE per week.
Each class is allocated two PE sessions over the week, in which they are given one small hall slot and one large hall slot to run their PE sessions, with the outdoors being used when permitted.
As part of the curriculum, children will be given the opportunity to learn the skills in the following areas: Athletics, Dance, Gymnastics and Games (e.g. Cricket, Badminton and Tennis). Year 3 pupils will also have the opportunity to go swimming once a week for half of the school year.
Each class and therefore member of staff work alongside qualified coaches from Blackburn Rovers F.C to help build the staff member's confidence in delivering high quality PE lessons and the children benefit in acquiring new skills whilst securing existing skills further.
