At Coppice Farm, we recognise the importance PE plays in the curriculum and are committed to providing all children with opportunities to engage fully in Physical Education. The aim of our PE curriculum is to develop children's basic physical competencies, build confidence in their ability and build the foundations for a lifelong love of sport, physical activity and a healthy lifestyle.

PE lessons encourage children to compete against themselves and others whilst being challenged to improve their physical, social, emotional and thinking skills. 

Our PE curriculum is in line with the National Curriculum objectives are we aim to ensure all our 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


At Coppice Farm, we aim to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport. Through physical education and the use of our whole school values our aim is to nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best.

We listen to our children wants and needs and provide them with a range of active experiences and clubs. Through our collaborative approach of specialist PE coaches, teaching staff and enrichment coordinator, we  want to aid our children in obtaining the values and skills to celebrate and respect the success of others, as well as celebrating their own successes.

Coppice Farm has a commitment to ensure that our delivery of physical education allows all children to have the skills and mindset to leave primary school with the capabilities to be successful in their
sporting challenges and active lifestyles at secondary school and beyond.

We strive to educate both our children and families to develop a greater understanding on how to live healthy lifestyles and make healthy choices. We are dedicated to ensuring healthy minds, as well as bodies and will continue to support our children's well-being, something that is extremely important to the Coppice Farm teaching community. 


Throughout the year, pupils at Coppice Farm will experience our collaborative teaching of the PE curriculum. The use of our specialist sports coaches and enrichment coach allows the children to focus on key skills and learning, whilst experiencing competitive but friendly games with peers in their own year group and occasionally, different ones. 

Teaching staff's PE lessons are planned using the Get Set 4 PE platform, which aligns with our core values and the objectives laid out in the National Curriculum. Get Set 4 PE is planned so that progression is built into the scheme, which ensures our children are increasingly
challenged as they move up through the school.

The curriculum planning in PE is carried out in three phases (long-term, medium-term and short-term). The PE curriculum at Coppice Farm has been put together to create a broad and balanced curriculum that is exciting for our children to learn through.

PE is taught twice a week at Coppice Farm, as we are committed to providing and promoting an active and healthy balanced lifestyle and curriculum. We are part of an active community of friendly and competitive local competitions and compete in the Gedling area football league. 


Coppice Farm are committed to delivering high-quality PE lessons so to support our coaching staff, we have listened to staff voice and provided teachers and teaching assistants with CPD to improve confidence in the subject. As a subject leader, regular and ongoing CPD is vital to providing the best opportunities for our children, most recently looking at supporting our SEND children in PE sessions. 


Pupils at Coppice Farm enjoy PE and the vast range of sports they get to cover over the year alongside our enrichment opportunities such as handball. We have a large number of pupils sign up to our extra-curricular sports clubs with Key Stage 1 athletics and Key Stage 2 dance being extremely popular! At Coppice Farm, we listen to our pupils and what they would enjoy for their extra curricular activities as we believe it is important to let them have their voice for what they will enjoy.
