Welcome to our P.E page!
Our P.E Leader is Miss Hilton and our P.E Specialist is Mr Sigley.
At St Peter’s we love sports and we promote an active and healthy lifestyle. We are inspired by our British Olympians, athletes and footballers to work hard and strive to be the best that we can be.
This year each class has chosen an Olympian to learn about and be inspired by.
Physical Education Curriculum at St. Peter’s Catholic Academy
Click the link to the document below to view our Physical Education Overview which outlines what each year group will be covering in P.E each term.
At St. Peter’s the aim of P.E is to inspire our children to love living a healthy life. We want our children to develop a deep knowledge and a range of skills, enabling them to sustain and enjoy a positive, active lifestyle. We will teach the key Concepts of Movement, Agility, Balance, Co-ordination, Co-operation, Competition, Sequence, Health, Fitness, Fairness and Respect. Through teaching these concepts all children at St. Peter’s will hopefully develop a broad range of skills and a love of being active!
All children at St. Peter’s will benefit from a broad, deep and progressive P.E curriculum.
In the early years our children will start to develop the FUNdamentals of movement whilst participating in lessons with a theme which mirrors their classroom topic. This enables the children to develop their physical literacy whilst embedding the learning achieved in the classroom.
In KS1 the Physical Education curriculum changes to an activity specific focus. Children learn how the body changes during exercise whilst further developing the FUNdamentals of movement (Jog, Sprint, Jump, Hop, Weight on Hands, Balance & Co-ordination). Through the effective teaching of Physical Education, a quality and varied extra-curricular offer and structured play during lunch times, children will be competent in the FUNdamentals of movement at the completion of Key Stage 1.
In KS2 the P.E becomes both broad and deep. Children develop their Key Concepts through a variety of ‘vehicles’, all teaching staff receive 1 to 1 CPD with the Collegiate P.E Specialist Mr. Sigley. This enables the children at St. Peter’s to develop their knowledge, understanding and performance in P.E through activities such as Handball, Parkour, Health Related Exercise, Tag Rugby, Dance, Football, Athletics, Basketball, Gymnastics, High 5 Netball and many more.
Children at St. Peter’s will develop a broad range of skills in a variety of activities. A deep understanding of how the human body works and the importance of exercise and hopefully find at least one form of physical activity that they love and will pursue for the rest of their life.
House Captains and Vice House Captains
At St Peter’s we chose children to represent each of the four house teams. They help to motivate their house team into being the best that they can. They also act as Sport’s Leaders to inspire and lead the children to improve their fitness and win points for their house team. The house and vice captains also have a big part to play during our St Peter’s Sports Day events and Sports Festival.
Meet this year’s House Captains and Vice Captains for our House Teams.

Fitness Fun Challenge & National Fitness Day!
Every week a child in every year group is chosen to take home a Fitness Fun Bag containing equipment and challenges to encourage active learning at home. The children have really enjoyed taking the bags home so far! Please keep sending in photographs of your children getting active at home.
To celebrate National Fitness Day on Wednesday 22nd September we gave all children the chance at becoming a ‘Future Olympian’ and taking part in Mr Sigley’s ‘Future Olympian’ Challenge. Click on the link below to see our Challenge!
