Physical Education

At Sarisbury Infant School, we integrate physical activity into the school day: within our continuous provision, outside areas, welly walks, crew-a-cise and lunchtime activities.

In KS1 children have two PE lessons a week. We fund specialist PE teachers from ActiveMe360 who work alongside class teachers in their main lesson to give children the skills they need to participate in a wide variety of sports and activities.  Class teachers provide an additional lesson each week to further embed these skills.


  During PE lessons we follow the National Curriculum and ensure that all of our children:


  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities


This in turn we believe will help them to lead active and healthy lives.


The children are 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.

     Ensuring Children's Safety through PE & Sport         


Harri Heart helps us to understand how to stay safe during physical activities. He reminds us why it is important to:-


  • warm up and cool down
  • listen to the instructions given by adults
  • be aware of other people around us when moving around a space
  • have space around us in PE unless told to work with a partner


Healthy Lifestyles and Cultural Capital


In order to encourage active lifestyles, we provide scooter training for all year 1 children. This is delivered by Pedal Power Training  who teach children to control their scooters and demonstrate how to cross roads safely and to scoot along footpaths with consideration for other users.  This will enable children to scoot to school safely and confidently . We are also looking to install bicycle stands around the perimeter of the school so that more parents are able to cycle to school with their children and model healthy lifestyles.


We  work with the Henry Cort School Games Organiser to offer children the opportunity to apply their skills for a defined purpose through interschool Festivals and Competitions throughout the year.


We have also established links with Hollyhill Leisure Centre and junior parkrun to promote a healthy lifestyle outside of the school gates and to offer parents and caregivers the opportunity to engage in physical activity alongside their children.
