The curriculum at Mobberley Primary School aims to teach children life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. We aim to build confidence and independence within all the children through P.E.

We are all incredibly proud to have gained our PLATINUM School Games Award for all of the exciting work we do in school to stay active.

At the bottom of this page you will be able to find our Physical Education policy. Policy as well as our Health and Safety Policy and Risk Assessment for Physical Education.

PE and Sports at Mobberley

By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes as follows under each Key Stage heading.

Please see our Mobberley Skills Progression in the link below to see the progression of our Physical Education journey whilst we are at Mobberley:

PE Vocabulary Progression

Here is (just some of) what we get up to in P.E. in Early Years:

Key stage 1

Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Pupils should be taught to:

  • master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
  • perform dances using simple movement patterns

Key stage 2

Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

Pupils should be taught to:

  • use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
  • play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
  • develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
  • perform dances using a range of movement patterns
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best

Swimming and water safety

We provide swimming instruction in Key Stage 2. Year 4 are attend swimming lessons in the Spring Term each year.

In particular, pupils will be taught to:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

We are very lucky to have access to some amazing coaches for tennis and cricket that we access during our curriculum time. Please see below for our yearly overview:
