Physical Education 2021 - 2022
‘Intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong’ – J.F Kennedy
At Boundary, the intent of our PE curriculum is to deliver lessons which are accessible to all and that will maximise the development of every child’s ability and achievement in the area of PE. This will enable them to know more about physical activity and keeping healthy.

School Games Award
This year Boundary gained the School Games Silver Award. To achieve this award Boundary offerered 2 hours of PE consistently to all pupils. We engaged over 90% of our children in Extra Curricular Activities. Boundary also ran initiatives to engage those pupils, who were least active. We engaged these pupils through healthy eating clubs for children and their parents, Change 4 Life Clubs and offering clubs which provide new and different sporting opportunities. We had to participate in a range of inter-school competitions and deliver inter-house competitions within school.
In EYFS, children are provided with opportunities to explore and develop their fundamental skills. The focus of our PE curriculum in EYFS and KS1 is the continuous development of the 7 key fundamental skills. This is taught through skill based activities and small competitive game situations.
Once in KS2 children will learn PE through the 5 Key areas:
- Outdoor Adventure Activities.
These are planned and taught with the support of the Primary PE Passport App. Every Pupil in our school takes part in 2 hours (2 Lessons) of PE a week, which is in line with the National Curriculum guideline.
