Physical Education

Curriculum Intent  

Our intention within Physical Education at St Gregory’s Catholic School is for all students to develop competence and confidence in a wide range of sports and physical activities, understanding the important link between physical health, fitness, and wellbeing.  


Our key curriculum aims are to: 

  • Provide an inclusive and accessible curriculum that enthuses and inspires all students to participate fully in a purposeful and meaningful environment.  
  • Empower students to become physically able, socially aware, mentally prepared, and personally responsible in a physical and active context. 
  • Develop a lifelong love of learning by providing a warm and enthusiastic environment so that students have fun and develop a real thirst for sport and physical activity and have the confidence to live a healthy active life. 


Students are assessed using the ME in PE model which focuses on Physical, Social, Personal, and Thinking elements and not just about physical performance in individual sports. We feel that this recognises the fact that there are numerous ways for a student to succeed within PE and provides pupils with skills that can be transferred into a large array of contexts.  


Skills developed in Key Stage 3 can then be transferred into Key Stage 4 and 5, whether that is Core PE or through academic courses such as BTEC Sport Levels 1 and 2 or GCSE Physical Education, and then further on to BTEC Sport Level 3 or A-Level Physical Education.

Cultural Capital


The Physical Education curriculum adds a wealth of cultural capital to students lives and prepares them to be able to make valuable contributions to society through:  Developing their physical abilities through gymnastics, athletics, team games, outdoor and adventurous activities and also teaches them valuable life skills such as communication, the ability to follow rules, problem solving, honesty, determination, passion, leadership and also to value the benefits of practice over time to better individual capability, knowledge, skills and understanding. Students’ overall well-being is also enhanced through physical education and physical activity. This teaches students the value of physical activity through the development of physical fitness and the mastery of skills and techniques and tactics. Physical Education teaches students the value of being part of something bigger than themselves through providing students with opportunities to take part in school teams.

Our Values

Ambition Rooted firmly in Catholic teachings, we aim to nurture and guide our students to fulfil their God-given potential so they may achieve success.

Leadership We strive to be a community of servant leaders, where individuals gain a clear sense of self and purpose, knowing their values and using these to guide how they enrich the community in which they belong.

Integrity We teach our students to value honesty and have strong moral principles, using their discernment to govern their actions and take responsibility for their choices.

Vigour Inspired by the life of St Gregory, we empower our students to work with vigour, so they approach all activities and opportunities with effort, energy and enthusiasm.

Empathy We aim for our students to understand and value the feelings of others and for them to know they are loved and celebrated irrespective of their differences.
