Caldecote CE Academy recognises and values the importance of Physical Education (P.E) and Sports.

PE and Sport at Caldecote aims to provide our children with a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed in competitive sports and other physically-demanding activities.

We do this through fully adhering to the aims of the National Curriculum for Physical Education to ensure that all children:

• develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities

• are physically active for sustained periods of time

• engage in competitive sports and activities

• lead healthy, active lives

It is our intention to offer a curriculum that enables children to develop knowledge, skills and vocabulary in a broad range of sporting activities, as well as developing values and transferrable life skills such as tolerance, fairness and respect.

Through enrichment activities and internal and external-school competitions, often working with local schools through our School Sports Partnership, we aim to raise the profile of PE and expose our children to sports they may never have had the opportunity to engage with.

Our PE Curriculum is based on the National Curriculum with a clear progression structure. This progression of skills has been planned using our chosen curriculum from the PE Hub, in order to build on the skills needed to meet the objectives in the National Curriculum.

We are passionate about the need to teach children how to co-operate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.


The PE curriculum is taught through the use of the PE Hub, which provides structured, lessons that link with the National Curriculum. The Scheme is used to plan and develop teaching by our in-house PE teacher. Teachers are able to adjust and change lessons to suit the needs of their classes but the scheme provides a strong basis of what is expected in each year group. Each class has access to two hours of physical activity every week, made up of an indoor session and an outdoor session (weather dependent). Sometimes we have external coaches in school to teach specialist sessions of PE, which our staff are involved with to support their professional development.  These sessions are part of our SSCO Partnership and funded through the Sports Premium. Through the use of coaches, fun and innovative sessions are run that offer staff the chance to upskill their own practice. Each lesson, children are given the opportunity to develop skills in a variety of ways and each lesson builds upon the previous skills, allowing them time to embed it. Different skills are recapped throughout, and across, the years, each time they are being built upon; allowing children to know more and remember more.

Key Stage 2 children receive swimming lessons every summer term, using the local leisure centre, which are aimed at developing water confidence, stroke skill and water safety. 

 A range of festivals and competitions take place throughout the school year, giving children opportunities to take part in competitive sports.


Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Caldecote; not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines that PE promotes.
