Sport and PE


Tattershall Primary School recognises and values the importance of Physical Education (P.E). We aim to develop a fun, high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sports and other physically-demanding activities. We do this by adhering to the aims of the national curriculum for physical education to ensure that all children:

  • 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

It is our intention to build a curriculum that enables children to develop knowledge, skills and vocabulary in a broad range of sporting activities.

Through enrichment activities and intra-school competitions, we aim to raise the profile of PE and expose our children to sports they may never have had the opportunity to engage with. Our PE syllabus is based on the Early Years Framework and the National Curriculum with a clear progression structure from Reception to Year 6. This progression of skills has been planned to build on the skills needed to meet the end of Key Stage objectives in the National Curriculum.


The PE curriculum is taught mostly through discrete lessons and where possible teachers will enrich children’s learning through a cross-curricular approach.  Each class has access to two hours of high-quality physical activity every week. These are taught by the class teacher, sometimes supported/led by JB coaching. Through the use of coaches, fun and innovative sessions are run that offer staff the chance to upskill their own practice. Within each lesson, children are given the opportunity to practise skills in a variety of ways and each lesson builds upon the previous skills, allowing them time to embed them. Different skills are recapped throughout, and across the years, each time they are being built upon; allowing children to know more and remember more. By the end of year 6 we strive for the majority of children to meet the National Curriculums standard of competently swimming 25m. We offer a wide range of sporting after-school clubs run by both teaching staff and external providers such as JB Sports Coaching and Carre’s Outreach. Carre’s Outreach are used to specifically target children identified through their fitness profiling conducted each year. A range of inter, intra and individuals’ events run throughout the school year, giving children opportunities to take part in competitive sports.

Our PE Curriculum


Swimming and water safety is an extremely important part of the PE curriculum at Tattershall Primary and another way of helping children to lead healthy and active lives. We are delighted that this year, 100% of KS2 children have participated in 12 weeks of swimming, which included swimming lessons and learning how to safely self-rescue. 

Within our Year 6 cohort 70% of children were able to swim 25m or further.

Wild Pines

Year 5 and 6 Children had a great day out at Wild Pines learning to be adventurous and try new things.


Our Year 3 and 4 children loved competing in a dodgeball tournament at Barnes Wallis. The event was organised by JB Coaching and we came 2nd and 4th with both teams thoroughly enjoying their experience.


Year 5 and 6 children successfully took part in bike ability this week. With children earning their level 1 and level 2 certificate.

Ball skills

We have worked hard in our lessons to improve our balance, co-ordination and our technique when rolling, dribbling, throwing and catching a ball. This has helped us to have a better understanding of different sports we will play when we're in KS2.


Tattershall Primary school really enjoyed their archery experience delivered by JB coaching. Children from Class 1 through to Class 6 got to have a go.

Class 3

We had a fantastic session with JB Sports Coaching learning a new skill. There were definitely lots of natural archers in Class 3.

Sports Day

Our whole school family had a wonderful day competing in lots of different races in the glorious sunshine. It was fantastic that we could share this experience with all the children’s families followed by a whole school picnic.

Throwing Skills

In PE class 2 have been practicing their throwing skills as part of target games.

PE - Gymnastics

Class 3 have really enjoyed their gymnastics lessons this term. They have been learning how to make shapes with their bodies, balance on apparatus, move around a mat in different ways and do a barrel and a forward roll. The children used this learning to choreograph a routine incorporating their new skills.


Class 3 had a fantastic morning learning how to play dodgeball. Everyone listened carefully to the rules and showed great sportsmanship throughout.


Class 5 have really enjoyed their gymnastics learning. Children have now used all their new skills in partnership to create a routine.
