At Bookwell Primary School, we strive to create a culture which aims to inspire an active generation to enjoy PE, encourage each other and achieve. We provide a safe and supportive environment for children to flourish in a range of different physical activities which is essential in supporting their physical, emotional, spiritual, social and moral development to achieve a lifelong healthy lifestyle.  


It is our intention to develop knowledge, skills and vocabulary in a broad range of sporting activities alongside promoting healthy life style choices, the need for a balanced diet, positive growth mind-set and the resilience to persevere with activities that may be out of a child’s comfort zone. We are also passionate about the need to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others. For them to learn to be part of a team and to embed life-long values such as, fairness and respect. All pupils are provided with opportunities to take part and excel in competitive sports and other physically-demanding activities. This provision is enhanced through the use of the Sports Premium Funding.


We aim to:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • allow children to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives



There is planned overview of teaching and learning, divided into units that cover key physical education topics. This is reviewed, adapted and can flex with the needs of the children.


Rising Stars Champions Scheme is the chosen platform used to implement much of the PE curriculum however other resource materials are used to provide a rich diet around the PE curriculum.


PE is taught by all teaching staff who have great enthusiasm for the subject and recognise the importance of physical education on emotional and mental wellbeing alongside academic attainment.  Staff are also supported by external sports coaches who work across all the classes ensuring staff have the knowledge and confidence to provide high quality teaching.


Sport has a high profile at Bookwell and is woven and embedded into the daily life of the school. The grounds are used effectively to support physical development and there are a range of extra-curricular physical activities on offer.

Bookwell is part of the West Lakes Academy cluster of schools who collaborate to provide high quality sporting opportunities. These range from festivals, tournaments and competitions and include a diverse and rich variety of sports/physical activities.



Our PE Curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. If children are keeping up with the curriculum, they are deemed to be making good or better progress.


At Bookwell Primary, we monitor and measure the impact of our PE Curriculum by:

  • Pupil discussions about their learning.  Verbal feedback is provided within lessons with misconceptions addressed verbally.
  • Assessing children’s understanding of the topic after the unit is taught.
  • Capturing images and videos of the children’s practical learning.
  • Conducting ‘pupil voice’ where we interview the children about their learning.
  • A reflection on standards achieved against the planned outcomes
  • A celebration of achievements
