Physical Education (PE)

Physical Education, including Physical Activity


Physical Education at Lovers' Lane

At Lovers’ Lane Primary School, we deliver a broad and balanced Physical Education (PE) curriculum which encourages children to become healthy, happy and confident individuals, who enjoy sport. Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills and competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities, including:

- Dance

- Gymnastics

- Games

- Swimming

- Outdoor adventurous activities


In line with our SWAN values of Show respect, Work together, Aspire and Nurture, our high quality PE curriculum will develop physical literacy and will allow pupils to learn about themselves, the importance of a healthy active lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such fair play and respect. It also contributes to the development of a range of important cognitive skills such as decision-making and analysis, and social skills such as teamwork and communication.


At Lovers’ Lane, we believe all children should have access to a high-quality Physical Education (PE) curriculum and PE should be an integral part of the whole school curriculum. Our School values the positive impact physical activity can have on emotional well-being and recognises that high quality PE and physical activity can benefit all pupils, across the curriculum. 


We are fortunate to have our own PE coach who teaches games to all of our children (in non-covid times) folllowing the Leicestershire Scheme of Work.
