Inquisitive, Resilient, Independent  

At Anglesey, we are a vibrant and nurturing school community, where children are given the skills to become, inquisitive, resilient, independent learners.  

Our curriculum provides a range of creative, challenging and inspiring experiences for all.  This equips our children with the life skills to be happy, flourish and be successful…Today, tomorrow and in the future  


It is our aim that we develop the children’s knowledge, skill and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities and will leave our school with an understanding of how to lead an active and healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally.  We believe that Physical Education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is essential to ensure children attain optimum physical and emotional development and good health. We intend to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education and in developing life skills. We want to teach children skills to keep them safe such as being able to swim.  We also want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes. 



An inquisitive learner has a thirst for learning and wants to discover as much as they can about the world by asking questions.  


A resilient learner can bounce back from challenges and problems, but also has the capacity to adapt in the face of challenging circumstances, whilst maintaining a stable mental wellbeing.  


An independent learner takes responsibility for their own learning. They are self-motivated and accept that frustration in the present is worthwhile to achieve future success. They take initiative and are good problem solvers.  




Pupils develop Inquisitiveness in PE by: 

  • exploring apparatus and equipment they haven’t used before.  

playing lesser known or new games such as Kabadi, Pilolo & Boccia whereby they have to find out and learn the rules before they play.  If the aim of the game is to pick up a target and return to their team location, a child showing inquisitiveness may position themselves away from the start of the line and watch how others  run, their speed and technique in order to initiate a plan to be quicker or more controlled than others and they could also apply advice to others in their group from watching others.

  • asking questions to find out more and have a greater understanding.   
  • Our PE curriculum can provide opportunities for children to plan, respond and analyse their own and peers performance with the aim to succeed not only through winning but personal improvement. 
  •  encouraging the children to solve problems through invasion game activities – e.g. how do you outwit opponents?
  • Developing an understanding of the impact exercise has on the body.

Pupils develop Resilience in PE by: 

  • showing resilience through 

competition, and by accepting defeat. Using that defeat to learn from their mistakes and do better next time.   

  • being able to play for teams their friends aren’t in.
  • accepting they won’t always be picked first for teams.  
  • gain confidence by persevering and actively participating with a skill they aren’t very good at, or a new skill and appreciating that people have different strengths and weaknesses
  • as well as practicing the physical skills needed, PE can help teach children how to socialise as part of a team and cooperate.
  • how to behave when successful or how to respond when not in a competitive setting.
  • being kind in PE; we work reciprocally and help and appreciate each other.
  • Giving all children the opportunity to do the daily mile which help to build up stamina levels – in turn developing the never give up philosophy



Pupils develop Independence in PE by: 

  • getting changed without support.   
  • choosing and using equipment safely, responsibly, and with confidence  
  • being able to reflect on their own achievements.   
  • asking questions if they don’t understand.   
  • not relying on their friends being in the same group.  
  • developing leadership skills as team captain
  • creating their own games and competitions
  • develop the way children perform skills and apply rules and conventions for different activities. 
  • Understanding how to make choices that will impact on achieving a healthy and balanced lifestyle.






Our PE curriculum challenges and supports every child to participate, have fun and try their best. Through our broad curriculum of activities, including swimming, dance and gymnastics, we will help children to create positive relationships with physical activity for life, to learn to enjoy active play and inspire children to explore activities out of school. New skills and the use of new equipment provides challenge and children are supported to apply new skills to other aspects of the curriculum. It can be a challenge for children to be part of a new team, where they have to learn how to deal with different personalities.

Children are encouraged to create and perform dance and gymnastic routines using and applying new skills they have learnt and to think creatively to find different ways of using equipment or of moving.

We have established links with outside agencies to deliver quality extra curricular clubs for all ages and this runs alongside existing curriculum provision. We employ play leaders and a coach to encourage active play at lunch time.

Children participate in Sports Day and become team members with children across other year groups. The events inspire participation and also provide opportunity for competition. We also support the daily mile and have routes for the children to follow.

Opportunities are provided for fundraising events such as Sports Relief and supporting staff taking part in the London Marathon, with the hope of inspiring pupils and to appreciate the hard work, dedication and effort that goes into becoming an athlete. Also teaching children to recognise and describe how their own bodies feel during exercise. 

Visits from sports personalities and athletes, able-bodied and disabled, provide inspiration as role models for pupils who see that their dreams to continue sport into adult life either as an amateur or professional is possible. We have good relationships will partner schools and this helps the children to have role models in other settings including secondary schools.

Children have also attended professional football and cricket matches.

Physical Education is the perfect vehicle through which to develop the crucial skills and attributes required for the modern world. Effective delivery of the National Curriculum Expectations will ensure that children develop into thinking physical beings and doing physical beings which impact on the behavioural change to equip them for lifelong participation.


Pupils participate in twice weekly PE lessons, one of which may be taught by an HLTA with PE expertise. Staff have continuous CPD and plan together. We focus on developing and building on skills and ensure a range of physical activities and sports to provide children with the opportunity to try different sports and discover which they enjoy or excel at. There are opportunities for children to engage in extra curricular activities during and after school in addition to a range of competitive teams.

Our inclusive approach endeavours to encourage physical development and well being for all.


At Anglesey, we will  have motivated pupils, who enjoy physical activity and who take responsibility for their own health and fitness in order to live active healthy lives.

In each year group, video evidence is regularly kept to demonstrate progression of skills and shows standards in PE across the school
