Information and Documents


At Christ the King, we strive to create a culture which aims to inspire an active generation to enjoy PE, encourage each other and achieve our personal best. We provide a safe and supportive environment for children to flourish in a range of different physical activities which is essential in supporting not only their physical, but also their emotional, social, moral and cognitive development.

We offer a dynamic, varied and stimulating program of activity to ensure that all children progress physically through an inspirational, unique and fully inclusive PE curriculum. We encourage all children to develop their understanding of the way in which they can use their body, equipment and apparatus safely yet imaginatively to achieve their personal goals. All children have the opportunity to enjoy being physically active, maintain a healthy lifestyle and using the medium of sport, increase their self-esteem. We aspire for children to adopt a positive mind-set and believe that anything can be achieved with determination and resilience.

The aim of Physical Education is to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Children are taught to observe and produce the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators. Thus embedding life-long values such as co-operation, collaboration and equity of play. As a Catholic school, the Gospel Virtues we strive to follow underpin everything we do which leads to children playing fairly and respectfully. In a generation which is becoming increasingly less active, we want our children to understand the positive effects of staying physically active. Furthermore, we encourage our children to adopt an active travel to school to not only improve their own fitness but also become aware of the positive impact this can have on the environment. 

We provide opportunities for children to attend swimming lessons to allow them to become confident in the water, knowing how to keep safe and also meet the National Curriculum requirements of swimming 25m by the end of year 6. 

Our PE Curriculum, along with RHSE and Science, teaches children about the importance of healthy living and learning about the need for good nutrition. We aim for children to develop the necessary knowledge and skills which will have a positive impact on their future by becoming physically active citizens to benefit their long-term health and well-being.
