Physical Education


At Bentley High Street we believe the subject of Physical Education aims to provide numerous opportunities for every pupil to develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence necessary to lead a physically active lifestyle. We believe that a high-quality Physical Education programme in school promotes an active lifestyle and improved health and motor skill development which will have a long last impact on pupils lives way beyond their time spent at school and into adulthood. There is research to suggest that being developing an active healthy lifestyle improves cognitive performance which has a direct impact on their academic attainment for pupils across many subjects taught at school.


At Bentley High Street we feel by helping our children to develop an healthy active lifestyle through good quality physical lessons we are helping the pupils to develop important life skills such as developing essential team work skills, target setting and working towards future goals and ambitions. High quality lessons will help to raise pupil’s self-esteem and will encourage our pupils to be dedicated and resilient individuals. Improving our pupil’s confidence and motivation which should have an impact on the progress the children make across the curriculum.







P.E is taught in week blocks across the year, this allows for children to achieve greater depth and understanding in their learning. We use the Rawmarsh Scheme of Work that was designed by a group of expert physical education specialists from South Yorkshire.


During the course of an academic year the pupils should be completing the following units of work from the Rawmarsh Scheme of work. This may have to be adapted due to the impact of the Covid19 virus.

Swimming (2019 - 2020)


We are really proud of our children who make progress in swimming, and they always look forward to this new aspect of PE. Last year we saw children who were initially afraid of the water grow in confidence as they built up their comfort levels in the pool. Our recorded results from last year for the cohort are:


Those who could swim confidently and confidently over 25m - 60%

Children who could use a range of strokes effectively - 67%

Percentage who could perform safe self-rescue in different scenarios - 41%
