Physical Education Curriculum Intent

At Markington Primary School we believe that being physically active and leading a healthy lifestyle is a fundamental life skill and we are committed to ensuring that our pupils become as healthy and active as possible.  We encourage children to develop ‘enquiring minds’ which ‘grow a love of learning’ and ‘our rich, creative curriculum’ provides opportunities to use physical activity in imaginative and cross-curricular ways. Physical activity is encouraged daily through active playtimes, active lessons, The Daily Mile as well as PE lessons twice a week.

Through our teaching of PE we aim to:


  • To develop in each pupil a positive attitude towards leading a healthy lifestyle, where exercise is enjoyed by all.
  • To provide pupils with the skills and motivation to lead an active lifestyle, where they are successful in a range of sports.
  • To enable pupils to develop the ability to identify an opportunity to practise and improve skills, and make physical activity part of their everyday lifestyle.
  • To enable pupils to work independently and in co-operation with others.
  • To develop confidence in pupils ability in physical activities and specific sports skills and to encourage independence and perseverance.

School Games Mark

We were delighted to receive the Silver School Games mark. This was rewarded due to our commitment to providing sporting opportunties to all our children, both in school and in competitions with other local schools.
