At Newton Leys, we deliver a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all children to develop a lifelong ‘love’ for PE and ‘Sport’.

Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills and competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities by providing a broad and balanced curriculum with opportunities for all to be enjoyed.

At Newton Leys our high quality PE curriculum will develop physical literacy and will allow pupils to learn about themselves, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such fair play and respect. We hope to inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. We a team of sports specialists who deliver our PE curriculum and support class teachers to deliver High Quality P.E.

We are improving our programme of intra and inter school competitions, which will provide opportunities for pupils to participate in competitive sports and activities both in and beyond the curriculum.

We aim to provide the children with at least 2 hours of fun, exciting and active PE lessons every week and to keep the children healthy and active every day with at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day and by educating them on a healthy, balanced diet and lifestyle

We are striving towards improving the delivery of the teaching and learning of PE in order to promote participation, progress and performance.  Our school also recognises the impact that the provision of a high quality PE and school sport curriculum has on the whole school and that it can lead to whole school improvements.

We are always looking for new initiatives and ideas that can enhance PE provision in the school and continue to try to improve the engagement of children in a variety of ways. We are looking to introduce the Daily Mile across the school to improve fitness levels, reduce obesity and promote physical and mental wellbeing. We continue to arrange opportunities to receive a broad and balanced curriuclum and provide opportunities for cycling, skipping, orienteering, free style football, lacrosse by using outside agencies to support our sports specialists. 

Developing pupil’s personal qualities through PE can affect their attitudes towards school and learning. When PE and school sport provision is of the highest quality, all pupils will, to the best of their abilities, develop and demonstrate the following personal qualities:

  • A strong desire to learn and make progress;
  • High levels of dedication, attendance and involvement in PE and school sport;
  • High levels of commitment to PE and school sport;
  • Good levels of positive behaviour such as politeness, fair play and helpfulness.

By implementing a monitoring and reviewing assessment system of PE, we can measure the impact and progress of the quality and provision within our school, which will l ead to overall whole school improvement.

It is also of paramount importance that we create sporting leaders during the children's time at Newton Leys.  We aim to offer lots of children the opportunity to lead sporting activities through our play leaders. By emphasising leadership, we hope the children learn the importance of communication, organisation, team work, resilience, perseverance and a respect for rules.
