In St Edward’s Primary School we have a passion for PE and Sports. Our children are offered a breadth of experiences in PE. They have opportunities to participate in activities such as games, dance, gymnastics and athletics. Every child is included in physical education and they are encouraged to be the best that they can be.
Children learn about Physical Education in a variety of ways through Maths, Science, Literacy and other subjects. Our children understand that PE is not a stand-alone lesson but that they can be learning about Physical Education in the classroom indoors and in the outdoor environment. In St Edward’s we promote the values of respect, friendship, courage, equality and inspiration giving the children knowledge, skills and motivation to establish and maintain a healthy lifestyle and enjoyment of physical activity and sport.
We are committed to ensure that every child has:
- A sense of well-being.
- A stronger sense of self-esteem.
- Their co-ordination improves along with their rhythm and timing.
- They show improved concentration and application to tasks.
For St Edward’s Intent, Implementation and Impact sections please refer to the PE Policy.

Since 1994, swimming and water safety has been a statutory element of the National Curriculum for Physical Education in England. This means that every 11-year old child should leave primary school with the skills to keep themselves safe while enjoying swimming with friends and family.
The three National Curriculum outcomes state that all schools must provide swimming instruction either in Key Stage One or Key Stage Two and that children must:
– swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
– use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
– perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
If your child is unable to complete any of the above then they will be expected to take part in swimming lessons before they leave St Edward’s at the end of Year 6. This is a National requirement for your child.
Year 5 pupils are attending Block 1 of swimming lessons at Borocuda Swim school this term.
Please find attached the letter below outlining further details.
Year 6 pupils will be attending blocks 2 and 3 in terms Autumn 2 and Spring 1.
