Physical Education





At Shadsworth Infant School we are passionate about raising standards in Physical Education and we ensure that it is taught with an engaging, enthusiastic approach. Through Physical Education we aim to enable pupils to develop co-ordination, strength, stamina and develop skills with an increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. We seek for pupils to develop their skills of selecting and applying skills and tactics. Following the Lancashire scheme of work, children will improve their fundamental skills in a fun, safe and enthused way. Children will then progress to be part of activities that promote stability & balance, object control, travel, games & tactics and swimming.





Physical Education at Shadsworth Infant School is assessed using the following;

  •  informal judgements by staff during lessons
  • immediate next steps provided via verbal feedback
  • pupil and peer assessments
  • formal skills and assessment checklists


Come the end of each Physical Education unit teachers make a summary judgement about the work each pupil has completed in relation to the success criteria. The Physical Education subject leader monitors class assessment and analyses data on a termly basis.
