Physical Education

The national curriculum for Physical Education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Pupils will develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.
  • They are physically active for sustained periods of time.
  • Children engage in competitive sports and activities.
  • They lead healthy, active lives.


At Lingdale Primary we want to provide children with a range of experiences and allow them to develop their skills of movement, as well as to develop and apply their interpersonal skills, including determination, self-belief, honesty, teamwork, respect and passion, as celebrated in the School Sports Partnership. Physical Education is taught for a minimum of 2 hours per week and all strands of PE will be taught in every year group (dance, gymnastics, games, athletics and OAA). The focus is on providing opportunities for children to engage in, and improve their performance in a wide range of activity and sport, by learning the skills required to engage and apply. The Children will gain the knowledge and understanding of the positive impact that engaging in such activity has on health and personal development.

For swimming, the focus will be on ensuring pupils, by the end of KS2, achieve the expected standard of; 25m distance swim, using a range of strokes effectively and performing safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
