“Developing confidence, skills and knowledge for life-long active lifestyles and healthy minds”

We follow the GetSet4PE scheme where each lesson has progressive activities that are designed to inspire and engage all pupils, allowing them to explore and develop skills and embed knowledge.  Activities cover the breadth of the curriculum and includes gymnastics, dance and yoga, as well as more traditional games such as tag rugby, cricket and tennis. 

Please click here to launch the GetSet4PE website for further information. 

To see an example of progression for both vocabulary and skills and knowledge within the GetSet4PE scheme of work, please refer to the Athletics and Gymnastics documents listed below.
