Physical Education

Physical education plays an integral role within a balanced curriculum offered at Greythorn Primary School. P.E develops pupils’ physical competence, confidence and their ability to use these and perform in a range of activities. It promotes physical skilfulness & development, knowledge of the body in action. P.E at our school provides opportunities for pupils to be creative, competitive and face up to different challenges as individuals, in groups and teams. It also promotes positive attitudes towards active physical activity and leading healthy lifestyles.

At Greythorn Primary School we believe that by following our school scheme of work and the requirements of the programmes of study, it forms a framework that ties in with our school ethos and philosophy. Areas of study include: Games, Dance, Gymnastics, Swimming, Athletics and Outdoor and Adventurous Activities.

Through our wide and extensive PE provision, at Greythorn Primary School we hope to promote the following values:


Be kind to teammates and opponents, truthful and promote fair-play. Be positive and diplomatic in social situations.


Working creatively to explore different tactics across a range of sports. Learning to be creative in solving problems across a range of sporting contexts.


Respecting classmates and the wider school community both in sporting and non-sporting contexts.


Believing in yourself and having the courage to give things a go.


Striving to achieve and exceed expectations. Showing resilience in challenging situations.
