The Curriculum at Lily Lane Primary School:


The Intent, implementation and Impact of our Curriculum  for PE.


PE at Lily Lane Primary School aims to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future. This supports our ‘Happy Curriculum’. Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. It teaches self-discipline and that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved. Lily Lane Primary School follows the Manchester agreed syllabus for PE.


“Every child is entitled to a high quality curriculum which places their physical, social, cognitive and emotional needs at the core of its purpose.”

It is our intent at Lily Lane Primary School to teach children life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. We adhere to the aims of the National Curriculum for PE 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



Pupils at Lily Lane Primary School participate in two weekly high quality PE and sporting activities.  Our PE programme incorporates Gymnastics, Dance and Outdoor Games to ensure all children develop the confidence, tolerance and the appreciation of their own and others’ strengths and areas for development. The key knowledge and skills of each area of PE are mapped across each year group.  This ensures that pupils develop their knowledge of games, dance and gymnastics and (from KS2) athletics and outdoor and adventurous activity progressively.  The skills in these areas are also therefore developed systematically, with the programme of study for each year group building on previous learning and preparing for subsequent years.

We teach lessons so that pupils:

  • develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities and experiences to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with their peers
  • engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations
  • apply and develop a broad range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement
  • enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other
  • develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.



We provide opportunities for all pupils to engage in extra-curricular activities before, during and after school, in addition to competitive sporting events. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also well-being. Pupils are taught the link between physical activity and good mental health and understand it’s significance as part of a healthy lifestyle.



Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all pupils at Lily Lane  Primary School, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes. Within our lessons, pupils are taught about self-discipline and that to be successful we need to take ownership and responsibility of our own health and fitness. Our impact is therefore to motivate pupils to utilise these underpinning skills in an independent and effective way in order to live happy and healthy lives. Pupils from Lily Lane Primary school represent the school, attending various competitions and events, performing and achieving well, especially in athletics and football.
