Physical Education (PE)

We promote cultural development in PE by...


  • Opportunities to explore dances and learn games from different traditions and cultures including their own, E.g. Indian dance in Year 4 (British Value: Mutual Respect and Tolerance)

  • Children also recognise and discuss the differences between male and female roles within sport, at both elite and amateur levels.  (British Value: Individual liberty and Mutual Respect and Tolerance)

  • Compassion and respect for other culture and traditions is also displayed by all when exploring unfamiliar games or dances.  (British Value: Mutual Respect and Tolerance)

  • Children will discuss how culture affects what sports different nations excel at and how cultural traditions can affect which sports men and women participate in. (British Value: Mutual Respect and Tolerance Rule of Law)

  • Opportunities to compete such as: St Francis Cup, Sports Day with feeder Infant School, inter-school events throughout the year. Colour run in 2023 to raise money for a town in Tanzania, this was well attended and supported by the local community.
