PE and Sport


Physical activity is an important aspect of children’s development as it’s the key to all movements through life. At Field House we want to help children build positive relationships with physical activity that last their lifetime.



As a school we use Real PE as it fits our 'Aspire and Believe to Achieve' ethos by developing the whole child. Using Real PE we aim to develop children’s physical literacy through six over-arching strands (multi-abilities):


  1. Physical
  2. Social
  3. Personal
  4. Cognitive
  5. Creative
  6. Health & Wellbeing


Each multi-ability is constructed to overlap with the others ensuring all cogs are spinning at once and therefore enabling children to have a ‘can do’ attitude towards PE.  Within this structure, children will develop resilience, confidence and independence whilst discovering how to lead  physically and mentally, healthy and active lifestyles. This scheme also shifts responsibility of learning, through highly developed learning nutrients, towards the children, helping them become habitually independent learners. We want children to learn this as a behaviour and attitude and allow them to take pride in their own individual achievements.


While instilling this positive attitude we also want to ensure children leave our school with some key fundamental skills:


  • Balance
  • Co-ordination
  • Agility
  • Throwing and catching
  • Running and jumping
