St Mark's Eccles C.E. Primary School

Physical Education



Through the PE curriculum we ensure that all children are physically active for sustained periods of time. We implement the NC through both knowledge and skill based activities and promote a healthy and active lifestyle. Children are given the opportunity to engage in competitive sports and activities both inter and intra schools which builds character and helps to embed our Christian Values.


St Mark's PE learning follows Pilgrim Progress:

We focus on the key skills of:

  • Running 
  • Jumping 
  • Coordination 
  • Balance 
  • Agility 
  • Throwing 
  • Catching 

We also encourage pupils to:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives


We measure the impact of the PE curriculum by observing and asking the children key questions. Our Review, Teach, Practice and Apply process that is key to our curriculum is used to inform the next steps within PE.  The class teacher and sports coaches monitor the progression of each child against the Pilgrim Progress.
