PE at Roundhill Primary School


Our focus in Physical Education (PE) is to provide every pupil with the opportunity to develop his/her capabilities to the full, which in turn leads to the development of positive attitudes in taking part in physical activity. 


This has implications on their feelings, attitudes and learning throughout the curriculum and providing the opportunity for cross-curricular work. 


Through the medium of PE, children gain knowledge about the body and how it works and responds to exercise.  They learn principles of movement and understand about how and why activity is undertaken.


PE should:

  • promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles;
  • develop positive attitudes (such as “fair play”, “honest competition”, “good sporting behaviour”);
  • ensure safe practice;


Pupils have two hours of PE timetabled per week through which we develop the fundamental skills of agility, balance and co-ordination. Part of this follows the ‘Real PE’ scheme of work by Create Development. 


In addition children will be given the opportunities to develop their skills in dance, gymnastics, games, athletics as well as swimming in our own pool. 


Each year all children have enrichment opportunities in a variety of activities.  Over the years we have taken part in Baskervilles Gymnastics, Scootfit, Dan the Skipping Man and many more.


There is a variety of extra-curricular sports clubs available to all children during, before and after the school day. See our clubs page for up to date information.



We believe swimming to be a fundamental life skill and all children at Roundhill, from Year R to Year 6, swim every year.


Inter-school competition

As members of BANES School Sport Partnership the children enjoy a wide range of inter-school sports. Over the years, we have sent teams of pupils to represent the school at boys and girls’ football, netball and cross-country.


For the latest news on all of our sporting achievements keep an eye on our weekly newsletters.
