PE at Christ Church CE Primary and Nursery Academy

At Christ Church CE Primary and Nursery Academy our vision for Physical Education and Sport is that every child should have the opportunity to take part in physical activity on a regular basis, become more physically confident and competent, learn and master new skills, enjoy a healthy lifestyle and learn about sports and games.

We hope that, through the sporting opportunities we provide, the children will develop a love and passion for sport and continue this throughout their lives.

Year 2 Football Competition


Our aim is to provide at least 2 hours of fun, exciting and active PE lessons each week. We also have active break times and classroom learning, with regular brain breaks which encourage our children to be physically active and a variety of equipment available for children to encourage activity, as well as play leaders and sports coaches.

We have also implemented the use of the ‘Golden Mile,’ which we aim for all children to participate in at least 3 times a week. The PE curriculum at Christ Church allows us to make cross-curricular links for the children, for example, Tudor dancing in year 5 and animal movements in reception, making for more memorable learning for our children.

Year 1 Football Competition


Christ Church CE Primary and Nursery Academy are proud to be members of the School Games 2021.

The School Games inspires young people to be physically active for life through positive experiences of daily activity and competition. It aims to provide every child with a positive experience in an environment where the young person’s motivation, competence and confidence are at the centre of the competition. We aim to provide our children with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best.

Over the 2020/21 academic year, there has been a focus on Alternative Provision and the School Games, providing all children throughout the Coronavirus Lockdown with ideas, competitions and encouragement to continue to be physically active. Teachers continued to plan PE and share these with children at home, as well as weekly challenges from School Games and our own Sports Club Leader, Mr Saunders.

Mr Saunders’ Sports Challenges


We work closely with Sports coaches to provide all of our children an inclusive PE curriculum that enables children to explore their own capabilities, develop positive attitudes towards sport and games, develop positive attitudes towards others and experience teamwork and co-operation. Areas of PE like Orienteering allow children to develop a different skill set and succeed in an alternative area of PE. Team games and invasion games are a big focus in our curriculum, as well as the after school sports clubs on offer every day. Team games develop social skills, teamwork, communication skills, the understanding of failure and winning and good sportsmanship, all skill sets that we feel are vital for Christ Church children. These skills are life skills.
