There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve:

The fear of failure.

Purpose of study


A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.


Curriculum Aims


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.

PE Intent


At Anfield Road, we like to keep mentally and physically fit! We want our children to love Physical Education and Sport. We want them to have no limits  to what their ambitions are and grow up wanting to be Personal Trainers, Nutritionists, Sports Journalists or Gold medal winners. 





At Anfield Road, we aim to ensure that every child has the opportunity to access at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day, whilst covering all aspects of the PE National Curriculum. We believe that through experiences, and a broad, balanced and progressive curriculum, tailored to all children, children will continue to have the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for their engagement in physical activity, sport and PE. 


Walk to School


We use the Living Streets Walk to School Challenge to try and encourage more active journeys to school. Children receive badges if they have met the criteria for active journeys to school for that half term. 



Our Physical Education Curriculum aims to develop thinking, selecting and applying skills which are important for progression across the whole of the curriculum. We want to make our children resilient learnings to be able to self-regulate and understand the importance of physical and emotional wellbeing. We want to develop curious learners in a safe and respectful environment. It is our intent for our children to adapt a healthy lifestyle and positive attitude towards sport which impacts on their future life choices. We offer extra curricular activities which allow all learners to thrive, to share their talents and exhibit their skills. 


To support the children in recognising what they need to achieve by Year 6 for PE, we are currently developing our Anfield PE vision. 


PE Curriculum Overview


At Anfield Road, we utilise the Lancashire PE Passport, created by PE specialists who share a passion for developing a high-quality challenging, progressive and memorable PE provision, which is an online Physical Education planning, assessment and tracking tool designed to enable teachers to deliver, monitor and assess all children’s achievements and progress in P.E. 


The PE Passport is child centred and allows pupils’ achievements in and out of school to be recorded and tracked from Reception through to Year 6. By utilising the PE Passport, we have access to a full curriculum of engaging, interactive PE lessons for each year group, with each lesson containing clear, progressive learning objectives, differentiated activities and videos to support the delivery, understanding and progress of the children.
