At Calverton, we encourage pupils to value the idea of keeping fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It is integral to how we function and carry out our daily lives as adults, and Calverton aims to promote and encourage this as early as possible with our pupils. We do this by providing opportunities for pupils to experience a progression of skills in various physical activities – here they learn to communicate, compete, demonstrate fair play, collaborate and work towards shared and independent goals. 

Pupils become more confident and competent and can apply their skills in a range of sports and competitions. Pupils are made aware of how to master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching; they learn how to develop their balance, flexibility, agility, strength and control. In summary, we aim to develop the pupils’ mental and physical endurance to lead healthy, fit and happy lives.


In order to cover the broad range of areas in our tailored curriculum, all year groups follow our curriculum map to ensure lessons move through a clear progression of skills. PE in all year groups includes a warm-up, skills development, opportunities for games based application of skills and finally a cool-down.

Staff develop their PE skills and expertise through in-house and specialist training, this allows them to keep up-to-date with the most relevant teaching practices and subject knowledge in PE.

In KS2, pupils attend swimming lessons. After school clubs and participation in sport is also promoted, this is organised and run by our teachers and specialist coaches to promote the love of team events and competition.


PE at Calverton helps develop physical competence so that pupils are gradually improving their physical ability. Pupils leave Calverton with fundamental skills and know how to apply them. They can evaluate and improve their own and team performances and have an understanding of fitness, health and well-being.
