Physical Education

Physical Education has a high profile across school.  All children in KS1 and KS2 take part in the Daily Mile.  As a result of this, pupils across school have been noticeably more engaged in lessons and have a positive attitude towards exercise.

Throughout school there have been many opportunities for children to take part in inter-school sports tournaments and there is a real ‘buzz’ across school when children attend these and strive to win.

There are many extra-curricular opportunities for all children to access.

Physical Education Curriculum Subject Progression Framework
National Curriculum & Action Plan Objectives

Key stage 1 Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Key stage 2 Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

Action Plan Objectives in School
  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  • Increased participation in competitive sport.
What Physical Education looks like at Sherburn Hungate

Physical education plays a key part in day to day life at our school. Every child (KS1/KS2) takes part in the daily mile (Reception children take part once they have settled into school life). This has had an impact on the children’s’ attitude towards fitness and their physical fitness.


Physical Education is taught twice a week across KS1 and KS2. Staff follow a long term plan to ensure coverage across the years.


We celebrate our achievements in Physical Education in our weekly celebration assembly in which Mr Wooffindin presents a certificate to his ‘Sports Star’ of the weekly.


Sports Day takes place on a yearly basis in which all children from EYFS to UKS2 take part.

Wider Physical Education

Extra-Curricular Clubs take place every half term and are led by Mr Wooffindin. He focusses on team work/listening skills in Reception and moves onto more complex skills with KS1/KS2 children.

Inter-School tournaments take place throughout the school year and are offered to children in KS1 and KS2. At some point during the year all children get the opportunity to take part in an inter school activity.
