Physical Education

We provide in school a balanced programme of gymnastics, games, swimming, athletics activities and dance to enable the children to develop a wide variety of skills, be physically active and extend their movement vocabulary.

The programme provides a progressive plan throughout each year and in subsequent years of a child’s primary education.

Our focus on physical education will ensure that children: receive two hours of high quality PE per week, have access to extensive out of hours learning opportunities, will learn that exercise and activity are a lifelong undertakings essential for health and well being, and that P.E. will be linked to the wider curriculum in order to enhance learning for all participants.

The school has been awarded the School Games Gold Standard for  5 consecutive years. We are delighted to be the only Primary or Secondary School in the North East to be awarded the School Games Platinum Award in 2017-18 - one of only 100 schools nationally to achieve this accolade. We will continue to innovate and adapt how Physical Education, Physical Activity and Mental Health and Well-being will be delivered at Cullercoats Primary School.
