‘Intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong’

J.F Kennedy


At Knutton St Marys we believe a high quality PE curriculum should be an integral part of the whole school curriculum and one that staff, pupils and parents understand and can contribute to. Through PE & Sport our children learn to develop the important qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, team work, and ambition, leading to improved concentration, attitude, and academic achievement.

Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills and competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities by providing an inclusive broad & balanced curriculum with opportunities for all to be enjoyed.

Our high quality PE curriculum will develop physical literacy and will allow pupils to learn about themselves, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such as fair play and respect. It also contributes to the development of a range of important cognitive skills such as decision making and analysis, and social skills such as teamwork and communication.



Pupils develop an understanding of how subjects and specific skills are linked to future jobs.
