Physical Education at Beaufront County First School

At Beaufront Front School, we place a great emphasis on the importance of Physical Education within our curriculum. Physical Education contributes to our health and emotional well-being, which supports and facilitates our academic and social development.


In our Early Years Foundation Stage, we aim to:

  • Develop the co-ordination and control of our pupils to enable them to demonstrate a variety of movements and handle equipment and tools proficiently. 

  • Develop their ability to move in a range of ways and negotiate space safely and effectively.  

In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, children study the National Curriculum for Physical Education and we aim to:

  • Inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities.

  • Provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.

  • Provide opportunities for children to compete in sport and other activities.

  • Build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

  • Provide regular opportunities for our children to be physically active for sustained periods of time.


  • Lessons build on the development and progression of core skills through a range of different sports.

  • Lessons challenge and further develop the pupils’ acquired skills.

  • Teachers present knowledge clearly, and effectively model and teach skills.

  • Children explore and use resources and equipment efficiently.

  • Lessons facilitate competition both in school and externally within Tynedale and Northumberland events.  Clubs are aligned with lessons to support skill development.

  • Children are signposted to local sports clubs/organisations.

  • Promote an active healthy lifestyle at school and target children for additional participation through clubs and events.

  • CPD for staff to support teacher subject knowledge.

  • Show skills progression and active participation through displays and social media.


  • Children are engaged and challenged.

  • Children are involved in school clubs and provided links to amateur and professional clubs

  • Children aspire to lead active and healthy lives.

  • Staff subject knowledge supports skills development of children

We will measure the impact of our physical education curriculum through the following methods:

  • A reflection on standards achieved against the planned outcomes.

  • Pupil discussions about their learning; which includes discussion of their thoughts, ideas, processing and evaluations of work and skills development.
