At Britannia, we take PE and sport very seriously and try to ensure that we get a breadth of coverage within the curriculum, offer a wide range of sporting activities after school and compete in as many competitions as possible.
Our PE curriculum follows a clear progression of skills and knowledge of a range of sports through our Curriculum Concepts.
Key stage 1:
We have two PE lessons per week – one in the hall and one outside. Indoor PE covers two units of dance, two units of gymnastics and a unit of indoor athletics. We move outside for a unit of athletics in the 2nd half of the summer term. The children focus on games and a variety of skills when they undertake their games session outside.
Key stage 2:
Years 3-6: We have two PE lessons per week – one in the hall and one outside. Indoor PE covers two units of dance, one unit of gymnastics and a unit of indoor athletics.

During their games sessions, children work on units of team and individual sports, such as netball, basketball, football, tag rugby, rounders, hockey, dodgeball, golf, tennis and cricket throughout the years.
Britannia take part in many sporting events, competitions and leagues during the course of the year. We also hold an intra-school competition where the children compete in various sports. The children are put into different house teams – Pickering, Jukes, Martin and Wark. They all play for the Elena Baltacha Cup.
