Mellis Primary School – PE Curriculum Statement


  • The school believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupil’s physical and emotional development and health. The physical education curriculum aims to provide for pupils’ increasing self- confidence through an ability to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations.
  • A balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities aims to cater for individual pupil’s needs and abilities. The teacher should develop a scheme of work which will include progressive learning objectives which, combined with varied and flexible teaching styles, endeavour to provide appropriate, stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning situations for all pupils.


  • Children will receive the equivalent of two hours of PE each week. One hour will be taught by our highly qualified in-house sports instructor and one hour by the class teacher.
  • Children will be given a wide range of opportunities to participate in after sports clubs across both key stages provided by external sports coaches and school staff.
  • The school will aim to enter every single sports competition held by the local school sports partnership and where possible two teams will be taken in order to ensure as many children are actively involved as possible.
