Physical Education


  • To provide children with a wide range of physical experiences, including games, dance, gymnastics and outdoor adventurous activities.

  • To develop children who are physically literate, understanding why we take part in physical activity and being confident to do this.
  • To develop children who live active, healthy lives and understand how physical activity can also improve their wellbeing.



At Chorlton we aim to provide children with two hours of Physical Education each week. Children will master basic movement skills such as running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as develop key skills such as balance, co-ordination and agility. Children will participate in team games, developing tactics such as attacking and defending. Children will also learn to put together routines using movement patterns in dance and gymnastics, as well as experience outdoor and adventurous activities. Our curriculum has been shaped to ensure children develop appropriate skills for their year group and that these are built upon each year. Children will develop personally by learning to play fair, improve their fitness, gain leadership skills, participate in a range of activities and improve their readiness to work. Children are given opportunities to try a wide range of different sporting activities, which differ from year to year, and also experience competition with their peers. The curriculum ensures children leave Chorlton with a love of physical activity, understanding the importance of this for an active, healthy life and improved wellbeing.


Our Physical Education curriculum is also drawn from: 


  • PE Passport

  • Youth Sport Trust

  • Manchester PE Association
