PE Curriculum

PE Curriculum



At Rimrose Hope, we are dancers, gymnasts, swimmers and athletes. We want our children to love their PE lessons, embrace the opportunities given to them and enjoy the thrill of being involved in sporting activities. 

It is our aim to give the children opportunities to excel in a broad range of competitive sports so they are physically active for sustained periods and understand the role that exercise plays in a healthy lifestyle.  Through high quality teaching and by employing specialist coaches where necessary, we aim to give all our children the fundamental skills, knowledge and confidence to participate successfully in lessons. It is our aim that our PE provision makes a substantial contribution to the wellbeing of our children, enthusing them with a lifelong love and a habit of being physically active.  

PE at Rimrose Hope stretches children’s capabilities as they think critically about their performance and the games they compete in.

In situations that can be both competitive and collaborative, children learn to overcome challenges, learn resilience, show respect for others and learn the value of sportsmanship and teamwork.


The PE curriculum is based on the National Curriculum programme of study and ensures progression and repetition in terms of embedding key learning, knowledge and skills.

The school has made the decision to adopt the GetSet4PE website to support the planning teaching and assessment of PE. 

We focus on teaching the six main strands of PE; Dance, Invasion games, Gymnastics, Striking and field games, Athletics and Net and wall games.

We utilise the expertise of sports coaches who work alongside the teaching staff to deliver lessons which engage and enthuse the children. In addition, we provide specialist swimming teaching to children in Years 5-6.


Teachers use formative assessment in lessons and this informs their future planning and helps them provide the best possible support for children. 

Summative assessments are made at the end of each topic.  Monitoring in PE includes lesson observation and pupil and staff voices. Information gathered is used to gain an accurate understanding of the quality of education in PE.


Year 6 Residential

At Rimrose Hope, we believe that learning is most effective when it's fun. Each year, our year 6 children endure an outdoor adventure activity experience that naturally has additional benefits which encourage the development of social and personal skills. All activities are visited offsite and the selection of challenging, high-adrenaline and fun activities are programmed to suit our children's requirements including: team building, resilience, self confidence and enjoyment.
