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.
