Physical Education

As a Rights Respecting School we believe that...

At Freegrounds Infant School Physical  Education is valued by teachers and learners alike. Our aim is that all children will access high quality Physical Education that will develop the children as confident movers, being aware of their bodies and what effect physical activity has on their bodies. We are pleased that our commitment to physical activity has been recognised by once again being rewarded with a distinction in the afPE Sports Quality Mark. 

PE at Freegrounds Infant School 


We are a fully inclusive school. All children are able to access the PE curriculum at their level.


In Key stage 1 each class is timetabled to have two sessions of curriculum PE a week. In Year 1 the children have the opportunity to learn about cricket and in Year 2 the children  learn about tennis using a programmed designed by the British Lawn Tennis Association.


In Year R the children have one session a week that focusses on basic movement skills and then they have the opportunity to further develop their physical activity during discovery time (continuous provision) activities.


All Year R children also have the opportunity to  take part in Balanceability training which is programmed developed to support children in being able to ride a  pedal bicycle confidently. We have experienced amazing successes with this. If you have any queries about this, please do not hesitate to come speak to one of the staff members about this.
