About Physical Education

Physical Education at Sacred Heart has transformed rapidly over the last 12 months. With a new team leading the subject, including our PE apprentice Mr Stephens, we are now entering more competitions that ever before across a range of sports and year groups. Alongside that, we are now running a wider range of extra-curricular clubs, including a school football team, cricket, tag-rugby, multi-skills and many more across the year.

September 2018 has also seen the introduction of a new, more robust PE curriculum. This is mapped out in the Long Term Plan, and it ensures coverage of knowledge and skills across a range of games, dance modules, gymnastics and Outdoor and Adventure Activities.

The galleries below show a selection of the PE units that take place within school:


Our Healthy Lifestyles curriculum team is lead by Mr Smith with Miss Fletcher, Miss Conlon and Mr Stephens.   The Healthy Lifestyles curriculum team also lead Mental Health and Emotional Well-being of pupils.

Aims of Physical Education

The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.
  • Are physically active for sustained periods of time.
  • Engage in competitive sports and activities.
  • Lead healthy, active lives.

By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.
