PE Curriculum

Physical Education (PE)

At Sybourn we endeavour to offer a high-quality curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. We hope to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and well-being. By providing opportunities for our children to compete in sport and other activities, we hope to build their characters and help them to embed values such as fairness and respect.

At Sybourn, our Physical Education curriculum 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
  • are engaged in competitive sports and activities
  • are encourage to lead healthy, active lives.

At Key Stage 1, we are trying to provide children with the physical skills to be lifelong physical learners. This means developing their (A,B,Cs); Agility, Balance and Co-ordination. By developing these skills from a young age, we hope that the children will be able to call upon these skills to help them perform in more traditional sports when they enter Key Stage 2.

At Key Stage 2, we look to continue to develop children's A,B,Cs as well as introducing more traditional sports such as gymnastics,football, cricket, tennis, table tennis, football, basketball and netball.

Our membership with the Waltham Forest Schools Sports network (WFSSN) allows our children to compete in level 2 competitions against other schools from around Waltham Forest. This provides children with opportunities to compete at a local, regional and, in some cases, at national level.

Our extra-curricular programme also allows children to extend their learning outside of the statutory two hours per week guideline. This offers our children a further opportunity to develop the skills and tactics that they will be learning in lessons.
