PE at The Bay

At The Bay, our PE curriculum aims to promote healthy living, whilst inspiring children to try new experiences. Alongside this, the most important aspect is to promote a love of learning so that children become lifelong participants in sport. We pride ourselves in giving opportunities to all children, not just the sporting stars.


Through our PE curriculum, we hope to inspire young athletes and promote a love of active learning. It is key that we encourage our pupils to lead healthy, active lives and that they are open to try new sports and experiences, which will help them to build confidence, social skills and positive habits.


Our curriculum is designed to offer variety, enjoyment and challenge for all children. The curriculum aims to give our children exposure to an activity that they will enjoy and hopefully continue throughout their life. We offer a range of physical activities before school, active play at break and lunch times, and a range of after school clubs.

In Key Stage 1, children develop their fundamental skills, and engage in simple competitive situations as well as co-operative activities. In Key Stage 2, they broaden and learn to apply these to a range of situations: communicating and working collaboratively with others. They also start to play more competitive games and have opportunities to enter competitions, within school, and against other schools across the Island. These variety of skills are emphasised within PE lessons through our Get Set 4 PE platform.

Children are always encouraged to take part and play a range of roles within the lesson so that it is inclusive and accessible to all. We are building characters and trying to develop leaders of the future, who have values of fairness and respect, as well as inspiring fit, healthy children.


The impact of our PE curriculum will be shown through pupil achievement, sporting achievements and most importantly, a pupil’s love of active learning. Our pupils will be continually assessed and monitored through our Get Set 4 PE platform. Some children will access the Gifted & Talented Scheme and others will strive to achieve their ‘Sporting Star’ badges. Specialised clubs and PE sessions will target specific individual needs.

As a whole school, with a great sporting reputation and history, we strive to give our children as many opportunities as possible by entering all of the competitions available to us and offering children the opportunity to represent our school with pride.
