Learning & Curriculum


The PE curriculum at Masefield is designed to allow children to experience a wide range of activities which help them develop their health, fitness and mental wellbeing. We strive to offer a high-quality physical education curriculum which helps children succeed in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities.

At Masefield, PE is taught as a discrete subject in order that the development of knowledge and skills is taught meaningfully and explicitly. Naturally, links are made to other areas of the curriculum but this does not dilute the quality and entitlement of high quality PE teaching.

The school’s long term plan for PE sets out the content of teaching within in each year group. This is supported by the school’s PE progression document which demonstrates learning outcomes within each strand of development within a PE unit. Short term planning details how this content is developed over a series of lessons within the unit of work.  The organisation of the PE curriculum provides structured opportunities for pupils to:

  • develop the health, well-being, fitness and coordination of children;

  • encourage teamwork, unity and collaboration with class members and peers, (school learning dispositions)

  • develop a positive attitude to physical activity, physical education and a healthy lifestyle;

  • develop the interpersonal qualities of tolerance, patience, discipline, taking turns and perseverance;

  • foster community links within local High schools, Sporting Associations and local primary schools

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities

  • be physically active for sustained periods of time

  • engage in competitive sports and activities

  • lead healthy, active lives
