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.

Curriculum Impact 2019-2020


Strengths of the subject:

Over the previous 3 years the school has achieved school games gold standard. This is the highest standard possible for the school to achieve and only a handful of schools achieved this mark in Doncaster during 2018/19. Unfortunately, due to Covid19 the 2019/2020 school games mark was cancelled.

High quality physical education lessons

CPD provided for staff on a regular basis and when requested working alongside specialist coaches or attending high quality training courses.

A Large range of after school sports clubs in a range of sports across the key stages.

Pupils are provided with opportunities to Develop their own leadership skills during lessons and in playground leaders. This involves annual training for pupils in Y5.

A large number of pupils have the opportunity to represent the school in sports festivals (both inter and intra school events).

We Celebrate the success of our school teams who are very successful in local and regional sports competitions


Areas for Development:

PP pupils working at greater depth in KS2?

One possible reason for this is that there is a smaller percentage of PP pupils taking part in physical activities compared to non PP pupils.  We can try to address this area for development by:

To identify PP children working at expected and make sure we include these children in the GD group to help accelerate the progress they are making.  If a LSA is present in lessons they can working with pupils in the GD groups that will include PP pupils currently working at expected.

To encourage PP to attend after school clubs in 2020/2021 once they get up and running when coivd19 restrictions ease.

SEN pupils working at GD.

Possible reasons for this include Limited LSA support working with pupils in PE lessons apart from 1:1 support, the possibility that a smaller percentage of SEN pupils take part in extracurricular physical activities outside school from a young age. We can try to address this area for development by:

LSA to support in PE lessons and work with GD pupils making sure some of these pupils are pupils with SEN but working at expected.

To make sure some SEN pupils who are working at expected are working in a GD group to help accelerate their progress.

To encourage some of our SEN pupils so that they attend after school clubs and sports events and maybe local sports clubs in the local community.


To look to see if class teachers have included the areas of gymnastics and dance in their assessments.




Physical Education Scheme of Work

At Bentley High Street we use the Rawmarsh Scheme of Work which was designed by a group of expert physical education specialists from South Yorkshire that included Lynn Taylor who worked for Doncaster DMBC at the time of writing the scheme of work alongside a local sports college.


Any questions on the physical education scheme of work that we use in school please see class teachers who will have copies of the scheme for their year group or the schools PE Subject Coordinator, Gary Brown.
