PE, Sport & Physical Activity


P.E. Subject Leader: Miss SJ Smith 

At Girnhill Infant School we aim for all our children to:

  • Children will be introduced to subject specific vocabulary that a sportsperson would use
  • Children will use subject specific vocabulary to talk like a sportsperson
  • Children will use subject specific vocabulary and definitions that a sportsperson would use
  • Children will research, interpret and present like a sportsperson
  • Children will learn, work and talk like a sportsperson


At Girnhill Infant School our PE curriculum is a base grounded in the Early Years framework and the National Curriculum. PE prepares our children to be able to not only compete in competitive sport but also be competent when involved with other physically demanding activities. Our PE curriculum provides children with the physical confidence which supports their health and fitness. It enables children to develop a range of physical skills as well as enabling them to work successfully as part of a team. These taught skills are practiced and applied in a variety of ways alongside thought provoking questioning, in order to deepen understanding and thinking. Children are taught and encouraged to use subject specific language when evaluating and discussing their own work and the work of others.


At Girnhill Infant School –

  • We plan using the National Curriculum and Early Years framework
  • We enhance the curriculum using progression grids
  • Subject progression grids are used to develop long term planning
  • Teachers use the long term planning to plan units of work and deliver individual lessons


Our PE curriculum progression grid outlines the skills, knowledge and vocabulary that pupils are expected to learn during their time in school. We approach all of our learning with Rosenshine’s Principles to support our pupils to know more and remember more of their curriculum, and ensure that learning is secure before they move on to new information or skills.
