Physical Education

Statement of Intent

At Clifton Hampden CE School we believe in educating pupils to become physically active and confident. We believe that all pupils can achieve. We aim to provide a wide range of opportunities including individual and competitive sports to promote team building, sportsmanship, fairness and further pupils’ personal goals, whilst promoting the importance of fitness for personal health. 


The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • 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
  • lead healthy, active lives.


PE at Clifton Hampden CE Primary School

PE is a crucial part of the curriculum. To help improve PE provision within our school we have spent our Sports Premium money carefully. To find out more, please see the section below.

Every child is expected to take part in PE lessons. 

The general teaching requirement for health and safety applies in this subject. We encourage the children to consider their own safety and the safety of others at all times. We expect them to come into school in their P.E kits on their P.E day. If you are not sure which days these are then please visit your Class Dojo page.



Dance – Navy/Black shorts, white t-shirt and bare feet.
Games – Navy/Black shorts,skorts or tracksuit bottoms white t-shirt and pumps/trainers.
Gymnastics – Navy/Black shorts, white t-shirt and bare feet.

Children should wear a PE kit and pumps or trainers weather depending. It is also recommended that in cold weather children have navy/black jogging bottoms and sweatshirt, as most PE lessons may be outdoor.


Any jewellery, including watches must be removed before taking part in any PE lessons, including swimming because of personal risk and danger to others or self.  Teachers cannot take out or put in earrings.  Any item of jewellery that cannot be removed must be taped over by the child.
