Physical Education

At Carr Infant School we strive to deliver outstanding PE where children participate confidently in a wide range of experiences, allowing them to create positive relationships with physical activity for life. 


 Our intent is for pupils to:

  • To provide an creative and ambitious PE curriculum, where our children enjoy and have the confidence to participate in a range of physical activities. 
  • To inspire and challenge our children, through ample learning opportunities and a safe and happy learning environment, to achieve excellent standards in PE. To enjoy and have the confidence to participate in a range of physical activities.
  • To encourage all children to become resilient, ambitious and determined young individuals, who are passionate about achieving their best.
  • To embed lifelong healthy habits and understanding of all aspects of a healthy lifestyle including mental wellbeing and nutrition.
  • To be proud of their achievements, both individually and as a team player. Showing an understanding of how communication is key to succeed.  

This is implemented in school through:

  • In EYFS, physical development is taught predominantly through a play-based curriculum, where children have access to a range of physical challenges both indoors and outdoors every day.
  • The use of our Jasmine online learning platform provides staff with the confidence and creativity to deliver high quality and progressive lessons.
  • Effective and progressive PE Curriculum (see progression document) that allows children to develop and build on prior learning. 
  • PE is delivered by a specialist PE teacher employed by the school to deliver creative and innovative lessons.
  • Investment in the School Sports Partnership to allow all pupils to participate in competitions with local schools.
  • Celebrating our own successes through intra-competitions and recognising the sporting successes of role models around the world.


The impact of our PE approach is:  

  • Children strive for sporting success and develop skills of resilience, sportsmanship, and determination
  • Our pupils talk confidently and positively about PE and their learning.
  • Children love participating in sport, and develop lifelong healthy habits.
  • Children will experience a range of physical activity skills, developing confidence to compete against their peers, discussing their emotions related to success or failure and how to react in each situation.
