Physical Education

At Beaver Green Primary School, we strive to create a culture which aims to inspire an active generation to enjoy PE, encourage each other and achieve. We provide a safe and supportive environment for children to flourish in a range of different physical activities which is essential in supporting their physical, emotional, spiritual, social and moral development.

At Beaver Green, our PE lessons are taught by a dedicated Sports Coach, who delivers a dynamic, varied and stimulating program. This ensures all children progress physically through an inspirational, unique and fully inclusive PE curriculum.Additionally, the children participate in 'Move and Grove' each morning. We strive to give all children the opportunity to enjoy being physically active, maintain a healthy lifestyle to increase their self-esteem. 

The aim of Physical Education is to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Children are taught to observe and produce the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators. Thus embedding life-long values such as co-operation, collaboration and equity of play.


We have three key principles which we strive for all our children to achieve.


  1. All children to participate in a sporting competition throughout the year

  2. All children leave school able to be safe in the water and to be able to swim 25 metres

  3. All children leave school being able to ride a bike


We offer a termly workshop to give our children a wide range of sports, run by specialists.  Alongside this, we also offer a variety of sports clubs, including those run by external coaches.   Not only does this enhance the provision available but also enables us to work closely with the local community.

Our curriculum is broad and balanced and teaches a variety of sports which gives all children an equal opportunity to participate to the best of their abilities. Our varied and rich curriculum allows children to take part in a vast array of activities which broadens their experiences which may inspire further interests and talents. Our children have the opportunity to participate in a variety of sporting competitions (as part of the School Sport Partnership).  We open up competitions to all children, regardless of their skill level.  

Above all we endeavour to ensure that children have fun and have a foundation for lifelong physical activity, leaving primary school as physically active individuals.



Our children enjoy swimming lessons at The Stour Centre. Fully qualified instructors support children to gain the knowledge and skills they need to remain safe in and around water.  

Our aim is to enable every child to swim at least 25 metres by the time they reach Year 6.
