Physical Education at Medway Community Primary School


Medway Primary School believes that physical education experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical development and well-being. 


  • We provide a broad and balanced physical education curriculum providing increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations.
  • Pupil voice plays a key role  within the PE curriculum, promoting a broad base knowledge, skills and understanding across a wide variety of sports and activities. PE encourages the development of independent life-long learners with children responding appropriately and sympathetically to others, irrespective of their age, gender, cultural or ethnic background.
  • The activities offered and the teaching approaches adopted provide pupils with opportunities to develop their creative and expressive abilities, through improvisation and problem-solving. Pupils are encouraged to appreciate the importance of a healthy and fit body, and begin to understand those factors that affect health and fitness.
