Physical Education

My name is Mr Sweeney and I am the PE teacher at Churchfields Primary School.

Children from Year 1 through to Year 6 have two lessons every week, exploring a range of different skills and activities. There are also lots of opportunities to participate in after school sports clubs which take place every day.

Sporting events and matches take place throughout the year and we have both intra and inter school competitions in athletics, cross country and football.

At Churchfields we use The PE Hub which is a complete PE resource packed with lesson plans, videos, music, printable resources, and assessment tools that staff use to meet Ofsted requirements and make PE more fun and rewarding for pupils.

The PE Hub supports us to deliver high-quality lessons by harnessing pupils’ natural enthusiasm for PE. We provide challenge and have high expectations with clear success criteria that help keep pupils on track.

The PE Hub has a huge range of progressive content for our teachers to use to design their curriculum. Building on a foundation of physical literacy in Reception, at KS1 children learn fundamental movement skills that prepares them for modified games at KS2. In addition to games activities, each year group has access to outdoor and adventurous activities and two units of gymnastics and dance; ensuring children’s learning is broad and balanced.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at if you have any concerns or queries.

Thank you for your support.
