How our PE curriculum will be taught to our pupils: 

In EYFS, pupils are taught the knowledge and skills for ‘Physical Development’ using a thematic approach outlined in our EYFS Curriculum: Prime Areas.  At Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, PE is taught to each class (or in some cases year groups) for two hours per week.


Children have access to sports equipment at morning and lunchtime break. Children in Year 5 and Year 6 act as Sports Leaders and deliver small group PE activities to younger children in school. This helps children learn new skills and also teaches them the SPIRIT values (Sportsmanship, Perseverance, Integrity, Respect, Intelligence and Teamwork). Children also have the option to sign up to various sports clubs including netball (KS2), SportsCool (whole school) and Bradford City (whole school).

 Children at Cononley attend local competitive sports events throughout the year. This enhances our relationships with local primary schools and the local secondary school. Every child at Cononley in KS1 and KS2 is given the opportunity to attend at least one of these events.

Throughout the school year, our House Captains will help to organise sport tournaments for other children in school, such as dodgeball, football, tag rugby and netball.

Progression and Assessment in PE:


Regular observations and assessments of learning are recorded using an on-line journal (Tapestry) and contribute to a summative assessment at the end of EYFS using the Early Years Outcomes for Understanding the World: ‘People and Communities’.

KS1 and KS2

Regular, ongoing observational assessments are made using the Progression of Skills documents:

Progression of Skills KS1

Progression of Skills KS2


The impact of the curriculum will be reviewed at the end of the year through observations and assessments of pupils’ learning using the Progression of Skills documents. 

The positive impact of Physical Education at Cononley can also be seen through the year; children look forward to PE lessons and extra-curricular clubs are always well attended. Since 2014, we have achieved the Silver Sports Mark, which we have then managed to improve to the Gold Sports Mark for the last two academic years. We have had success in a wide variety of extra-curricular sporting competitions including cross country, football, netball, swimming and athletics. Further information about cluster tournaments can be seen on our Sports page.
