The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of time
- engage in competitive sports and activities
- lead healthy, active lives.
At Wilby School we follow the 'real PE' programme schemes of work for Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. A central focus of the programme is to help pupils become physically literate by developing their Fundamental Movement Skills-agility, balance and coordination. These are the building blocks that underpin the ability to play and be involved in many different sports and activities and it is therefore essential that every child masters these skills. In addition, the ability to move confidently and effectively can assist children to undertake everyday challenges, play, learn more effectively and participate successfully in Physical Education and Sport.
Our skills progression chart shows the type and level of skills that we believe should aim to achieve each year.
We promote both inclusive competition and the teaching of broader essential holistic skills. As a school we hold the School Games Gold Award and as part of this we ensure that our pupils have opportunities to participate in a wide range of opportunities both within and beyond the school day. All pupils are members of school House Teams and participate in intra-school sports competitions in a range of sports. They also compete against other schools demonstrating high levels of performance at both local and regional levels.
We also ensure that pupils are provided with opportunities to experience a wide range of additional sporting/ physical opportunities in order to allow pupils to sample and find their own particular area of interest

Autumn 2020: We might still be in lockdown but we are finding as many ways to challenge and keep our children engaged in sport as possible. The following article by Steve Parry School (Games Organiser for the High Suffolk Sport Partnership) appeared in the High Suffolk Sport partnership News 23.11.20:
Wilby Primary School
Isaac Chapman, PE Co-ordinator at Wilby Primary School invited me into school this week to look at ways that he can give his new House Captains some responsibility this year. We discussed the range of opportunities with his 6 young leaders, and talked about creative ways to ensure activities can happen even with the current bubbles and size of the school. A truly inspirational lunchtime meeting for me and hopefully for the captains!
