Sport & PE Premium


At Bocking Primary School we aim to teach a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport, sport for pleasure and other physically – demanding activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in ways that supports their health and fitness. Opportunities are given to experience a wide range of sports and to embed values such as fairness, resilience and respect.


The Bocking curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  •          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.

Key Stage Expectations


In Foundation stage, pupils move towards developing good control and co-ordination in small and large movements. Children should be developing fundamental skills with confidence, safely negotiating space and trying new activities in the process.

Pupils are taught to:

  • Master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing, hopping, crawling, throwing and catching and begin to apply these in a range of areas
  • Develop balance and agility, negotiate space, adjust speed, change direction and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • Work as part of a group or class, and understand and follow the rules
  • Move confidently and in time to music

Key stage 1

Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Pupils are taught to:

  • Master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • Participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
  • Perform dances using simple movement patterns.

Key stage 2

Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

Pupils should be taught to:

  • Use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
  • Play competitive games, modified where appropriate for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis, and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
  • Develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance, for example, through athletics and gymnastics
  • Perform dances using a range of movement patterns
  • Take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • Compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.

Swimming and water safety

At Bocking we provide swimming instruction in key stage 2.

In particular, pupils are taught to:

  •  Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  •  Use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
  •  Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
