At the centre of our curriculum are our school aims and drivers, and high quality PE delivers these core values while laying the foundation for a healthy lifestyle. All children at Seaburn Dene engage in two high quality hours of timetabled PE a week, keep active throughout the day and have opportunities to perform in a competitive environment. PE lessons, physical activity and competitive sport are key building blocks of aspiration within our curriculum, and we encourage children who want to challenge themselves further to join one of our many extracurricular school sports clubs. We also inspire children to go the ‘extra mile’ and connect with one of the many fantastic sporting links we have at Seaburn Dene to further stretch their ambitions.




PE is a vital part of every child's journey at Seaburn Dene; our youngest children engage in PE as soon as they join us in Nursery.  PE lessons are filled with rich activities to get the children moving in a correct and safe way.



PE Curriculum Map: Year 1-6

Our curriculum map is an overview of our PE activity in timetabled lessons. Each year group is allocated two PE foci per half term from a large range of sports or skills, including: tag rugby, basketball, swimming, athletics, gymnastics, hockey, netball, dance, football, tennis and more. Where possible, sports are selected at specific times of the year to match sporting competitions. Adjustments may also be made throughout the year depending on specialist coach availability. This document will be updated over the course of the year. 



23 / 24 

This year we are utilising the high quality scheme ‘Real PE’ to further enhance our provision of PE. In KS1, RealPE will form the central focus for skills, gym and dance, while in KS2 it will sit alongside sports that the children continue to enjoy and have the opportunity to compete in throughout the year. RealPE will ensure children are well rounded in not only physical fitness, but also in their social and personal development.
