At St Giles we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital in its contribution to a pupil’s physical and emotional development, well-being and health.
The school aims to provide a broad and balanced physical education curriculum which provides children with opportunities to promote physical development and competence. When appropriate the programme will be linked to other curriculum areas.
Progressive learning objectives, combined with varied teaching approaches, endeavour to provide stimulating, enjoyable and appropriately challenging learning experiences for all pupils. Through the selection of suitably differentiated tasks, it is intended that pupils, irrespective of their ability, will be motivated to further develop their individual potential. It aims to develop physical competence so that pupils are able to move efficiently, effectively and safely and understand what they are doing. We aim to give all children the opportunity to extend their range of physical skills and develop their proficiency as well as appreciating the benefits of participation. Through physical education, we aim to develop interpersonal and problem-solving skills, develop personal quality such as self-esteem, confidence, tolerance and empathy.

Sports Funding Grant
It’s a really exciting time for primary PE and Sport as a £150 million-a-year funding boost is injected to primary school sport.
This funding is hoped to continue to inspire the Olympic and Paralympic stars of the future. The new sports funding aims to improve the quality of provision in every state primary school in England, by increasing the participation in PE and sport, developing healthy lifestyles and improving the performance levels that young people are capable of.
Where is this funding coming from?
- £80 Million from The Department for Education
- £60 Million from The Department of Health
- £10 Million from The Department for Culture, Media and Sport
The funding is ring-fenced and can only be spent on physical education and school sport. The funding will go directly into the hands of heads and teachers who will decide what is best for their children’s needs.
Tougher assessment of sport and physical education provision via Ofsted to ensure the funding is bringing the maximum benefit for all pupils, with schools being held to account for how they spend the funding.
