Physical Education

The PE curriculum consists of dance, gymnastics, games, swimming and outdoor adventurous activities. On average, children experience at least 2 hours of PE per week, although there may be times such as on school journeys, that they do much more than this. Weekly lessons usually consist of either a dance or gym lesson indoors and a games lesson outdoors. Year 4 children receive swimming lessons at Uxbridge Pool.

In addition to weekly PE, Years 4, 5 and 6 all have the opportunity to undertake school journeys that involve more specialist activities such as rock climbing, abseiling, trampolining, raft-building and archery. Year 2 and Year 5 have, in recent years, been involved in multi-skills games days with other local schools; these are usually held in Queensmead Secondary School.

In addition to the PE curriculum, we aim to provide some extra-curricular sporting opportunities before or after the school day or during lunchtime. These have recently included martial arts, cricket, rounders, netball, cross country, athletics, tennis and a variety of dance styles.






Sports Premium Grant 

From September 2013 the government are allocating funding directly to primary schools to support the provision of quality PE/sport.

Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year.

'Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this' (DfE, June 2013)

We are working closely with a number of local primary schools and are supported through a service from The Harefield Academy (secondary school with a Sports Specialism). We have identified key areas to develop to ensure we further develop high expectations in PE and sport for our children.

Deanesfield Primary School plans to use the funding to:

  • Complete a PE Audit with a specialist

  • Hire a specialist PE teacher to work alongside teachers

  • Release teachers to attend training

  • Host a multi skills style festival for some pupils

  • Provide training for the PE Coordinator

  • Continue to deliver and expand the range of extra-curricular sporting opportunities

  • Introduce a new skills based scheme of work to improve the delivery of PE

  • Provide training for teachers to deliver new skills based scheme of work

The funding will impact our school by:


  • Increasing confidence in planning and delivering PE lessons

  • Improving knowledge of Physical Education for teachers

  • Improving the skills and fitness of the children in our care

  • Increasing the participation in extra-curricular opportunities

  • Increasing the range of opportunities for participation to engage all children
