At RHJS, we recognise the importance of PE and the role it has to play in promoting long-term, healthy lifestyles. The intent of our PE curriculum is to provide all children with high quality PE and sport provision. It is our vision for every pupil to succeed and achieve their potential as well as to lead physically active lifestyles. We strive to inspire our pupils through fun and engaging PE lessons that are enjoyable, challenging and accessible to all. We want our pupils to appreciate the benefits of a healthy and physically active lifestyle. PE at Rednal supports pupils’ oracy skills by providing them with effective language experiences through the promotion of specialist and technical vocabulary, questioning, feedback on performance, group work and other aspects of co-operative learning.  We will provide opportunities for pupils to develop values and transferrable life skills such as fairness, respect and resilience as well as providing them with opportunities to take part in competitive sport.


Across the key stage, pupils apply and develop a broad range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. Through our curriculum, we encourage communication, collaboration and competition. Pupils develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own successes.  Where appropriate, the PE links with other areas of the curriculum and our provision includes the development of the physical, cognitive, social and emotional elements of learning while meeting the aims of the national curriculum.  Through their PE sessions, pupils are given the opportunity to practise skills in a variety of ways and each lesson is sequenced so that it builds on previous skills, allowing them time to embed it.  Different skills are recapped throughout and across the years as teachers continue their ongoing assessment of their specific classes needs.

In Year 3 and 5, all children receive swimming tuition every academic year. Children who do not achieve the required standard in swimming in Year 3 and 5 will be given the opportunity to further their skills in Year 6.


  • Children understand how to lead a healthy lifestyle and the importance of exercise
  • Lesson visits demonstrate that children consolidate and use the fundamental movement skills of agility, balance and coordination through sporting activities
  • Pupil interviews demonstrate a sound understanding of the physical and social aspects delivered
  • Intra school competitions are held to observe the skills taught throughout the current sequence of learning
