PE at Holly inspires learners to realise their full potential and develop a lifelong interest in participating in physical activity and sport, whatever their ability in the subject. Our PE is inclusive and ensures that pupils of all abilities access the range of activities we offer and that they are physically active for sustained periods of time in order to encourage them to lead healthy, active lives.

In addition to this, specialist coaches will enhance the teaching and learning of PE within the curriculum and provide extra-curricular activities. Regular participation in sport and physical activity can help to reduce the risk of heart failure, improve physical fitness, help with weight management, promote good health, instil self-discipline, develop skill, improve self-confidence, reduce stress and develop lifelong learning skills. This is what we aim to instil in Holly children-that PE impacts all areas of life.


  • To ensure pupils develop positive attitudes towards health and activity.
  • To ensure pupils lead healthy, active lives and understand and value the role of healthy living and physical activity.
  • To give pupils an enriched access to a range of sporting opportunities.



Each term, we use a range of methods to assess skills and knowledge attained by the children –

  • Pupil Voice
  • Three Thinkers Questions
  • Book Looks
  • Regular lesson feedback
