The areas of physical activity (games, gymnastics, dance, athletics, swimming and outdoor activities) are set out in the Foundation Stage Curriculum and National Curriculum 2014. The PE curriculum at Riverside Primary School is based on these requirements. Each year group will learn PE in accordance with the medium term planning. This will ensure continuity and progression through school in order to continue to improve standards in PE.


At Riverside Primary School we aim to provide an education in Physical Education that:

● Promotes an active and healthy lifestyle in order for the children to:

● be physically active

● adopt the best possible posture and appropriate use of the body

● engage in activities that develop cardio vascular health, flexibility, muscular strength and endurance

● understand the need for personal hygiene in relation to vigorous physical activity  


Develop positives attitudes by ensuring the children:

● follow the conventions of fair play and honest competition

● cope with success and limitations in their performance

● persevere with and consolidate their performances

● are mindful of others in their environment
