Physical Education


At Cutnall Green Primary School, we aim to provide an inclusive, progressive, broad and balanced PE curriculum to all pupils.  Our ambition is to enable pupils to become physically literate and enjoy a fit and healthy lifestyle.  We aim to develop a range of skills including, agility, balance, coordination, strength, speed and endurance.  We use our STARS values to promote and develop pupils’ understanding of sportsmanship, fair play and perseverance. 

We hope to inspire our pupils to participate and succeed in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities that build character and embed values of fairness and respect.

Our goal is to ensure all our children leave primary school with the passion, knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a lifelong interest in sport and physical activity.




Pupils from Year 1 to 6 will receive two hours of a broad, balanced and progressive curriculum. Our PE curriculum incorporates a variety of physical activities such as invasion games, strike and field games, swimming and gymnastics.

We provide opportunities to attend extra-curricular clubs and represent Cutnall Green at a range of sports.  Various extra-curricular clubs and taster sessions are delivered by coaches from local clubs to help signpost pupils to further sporting opportunities outside of school and within our local area.

Through active lessons and purposeful play at break and lunchtimes, pupils will have the opportunity to meet the national expectation of 30 minutes of physical activity per day.



By engaging in PE and school sport, we help motivate pupils to participate in a variety of sports and activities which develop their physical and social skills.  There will be a positive impact on their emotional health and well-being with pupils taking responsibility for their own health and fitness. 

As pupils are equipped with the necessary skills and love for sport, they often grow up to live healthy and active lives.
