  • Net and Wall Games
  • Invasion Games
  • Gymnastics 
  • Dance 
  • Striking and Fielding 
  • Athletics 
  • Multi-Skills sports
  • Swimming

What does our curriculum aim to do?

Our high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.  We also promote values such as fairness and respect through sporting opportunities.

The national 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.

How are your child’s skills assessed?

Our sports coaches will be assessing your child’s skills progression against the national curriculum expectations for each key stage.


Children at Lace Hill Academy love their PE lessons and show a high level of engagement and progress within their lessons.  They also have the opportunity at lunchtime to participate in structured sports activities, led by the S4A Sports coaches.  As we continue to develop our school, we are looking to create more inter-school competitions.  Many children from key stage 1 and 2 have attended local sports festival tournaments and we aim to increase these sporting opportunities for the children as the school continues to grow.
