Physical Education



All the teachers were asked to think carefully and then nominate a pupil from each year group that has demonstrated excellence in PE.

Teachers considered the Lane End skills and attributes of Skilful Sportstars that we want to develop in our children.

They were to put forward pupils that show a real flair for the subject, are working hard with determination to build their knowledge, skills and understanding in that curriculum area, and work with passion and enthusiasm. They were to choose children that were a learning role model for others, and deserved the recognition for this.

Then the final nominations were in and the overall winner chosen.

PE Lead Champion


Mr Forsythe is our subject champion for Physical Education here at Lane End. He has a clear vision for this area of the curriculum in our primary school - and wants children to leave our school physically literate, having experienced many different sports and activities and with a joy and drive for regular physical activity.


He has thought carefully about the design of the Lane End PE curriculum and has mapped curriculum experiences into each year group that cover all aspects of the National Curriculum and allow a breadth of skills and PE types to be covered. Mr Forsythe wants Lane End children to be inspired through PE to engage in extra-curricular activities and for that to become a life-long habit.


The curriculum map means that children will learn a breadth of games, dance, outdoor and adventurous, gymnastic, athletic and swimming skills. They will acquire linked vocabulary and understanding and develop and apply their skills each year as they move through school. Mr Forsythe believes that our children should have opportunities to participate in competitions and a chance to shine physically.


He is supporting all our teachers so that provide growing opportunities for our pupils to progressively develop in each area of PE.


He wants them to experience engaging opportunities throughout and beyond the school day to be physically active and to understand how important this is to their physical and mental health and wellbeing.


Below is the broad overview of our Lane End PE curriculum. Mr Forsythe has also attached an overview of PE ‘topics’ covered in each year group.
