The Federation of Wellington Community Primary School & Marlborough Infant School



Across our Federation, we understand the importance of physical education for the lifelong impact on pupils health. The PE curriculum will be supportive of their health and fitness and promote physical activity throughout their school lives and beyond.


Through Physical Education, we will foster the children's physical literacy, enabling them to participate in diverse physical activities (including competitive games) with growing self-assurance and proficiency. This will happen through the high quality and engaging lessons that help all pupils enjoy physical education. Through the provision of various sports and activities, we will nurture character development and instil the values of respect and fairness among our students. 

Our PE curriculum is thoroughly planned and consistently monitored and adapted to ensure that children are provided with the best opportunities to develop the following key skills: 

  • Running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination. 
  • Play competitive games where they are able to apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending. 
  • Develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance. 
  • Perform dances using a range of movement patterns. 
  • Compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best. 
  • Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres using a range of strokes effectively and performing safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
