Physical Education


The intent of the Camps Hill PE curriculum is that every child has the chance to "learn, move, and grow" by participating in a variety of sports and learning the critical skills required for their developmental stage through a spiral curriculum. In early years, young children will develop gross motor skills taught through a variety of activities developed from the foundation stage framework.

To prepare KS1 pupils for KS2, students will acquire a larger variety of basic sports skills. By KS2, the basic skills will be improved and applied to games and competition throughout PE lessons. Fundamentally, children are required to be active for the majority of their classes in order to improve their health and fitness.


Early Years

  • The foundation stage framework is used to create the curriculum for the Early Years, which includes preschool. Young children will acquire gross motor abilities by participating in more extensive play.
KS1 and KS2
  • Using Complete PE, KS1 will study basic sport skills at an advanced level. Every half term, there will be two topics, giving pupils a total of twelve topics per year. By year 2, they will have begun some sports linking to movement such as dancing and gymnastics.
  • In KS2, pupils will largely focus on sports. They will pick up the specifics of the sport they are playing, including competition-related rules and skills. Additionally, students will take swimming classes to learn how to swim 25 metres successfully.​     
Additionally, Camps Hill offers a greater range of sporting opportunities throughout the year through its daily mile, sport clubs, inter, and intra competitions.


How we measure impact:

Adults will use end of unit assessment to gather evidence to make an end of year judgement. It will be recorded on our system whether or not pupils will be working towards, at or are exceeding age-related expectations.
