The Curriculum

Burford Primary School is committed to promoting the health and well-being of its pupils and staff through the provision of high quality PE and sport. We seek to provide a full, varied and interesting Physical Education curriculum, which challenges, engages and excites staff and pupils. To further the education and experience of physical education for our pupils and teachers at Burford Primary, an external coach supports the class teacher in teaching each class once a week. Burford Primary School believes it important to encourage leadership and promote school community. Our Year 6 young leaders are responsible for the running of breaktime activities for younger pupils. We are always looking for new ways to become involved in and promote sport – from playing sport with other schools, running a sport extra-curricular club termly, to implementing Forest School into the curriculum for all year groups. Children in both Upper and Lower School are involved in numerous tournaments, festivals and competitions throughout the year. As a school, we understand the importance of healthy living outside of school as well, and we have, therefore, forged partnerships with local clubs that we can signpost children to.

How PE is taught?

All classes have two PE lessons a week. All classes will be taught the same sport in each term, with skills building progressively through the school. The PE Planning Scheme is used to support high quality planning and progression of skills development. Years 4,5 and 6 also attend swimming lessons for a term.
