Physical Education

"A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities.  It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.  Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect."

PE at Barkisland is taught through the 'Real PE' scheme.

Real PE is a unique, child-centred approach that transforms how we teach PE to engage and challenge EVERY child in primary school.

It provides fun and simple to follow Primary PE Schemes of Work and support for Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 practitioners that give them the confidence and skills to deliver outstanding PE. It is fully aligned to the National Curriculum and Ofsted requirements and focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning through a unique and market leading approach to teaching and learning in PE.

Giving EVERY child the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve in PE, Sport and Life.

Daily Mile

All children (and classroom staff) take part in our Daily Mile! We use our bespoke running track encouraging children to get active for 10 minutes a day! This keeps our children's minds and bodies fit and healthy!

Active Maths

To encourage extra physical activity in class, each class has an active maths learning session once a week. This is an entirely active maths lesson. A super, fun way to learn!
