Physical Education

The Physical Education curriculum at George Eliot is centred around; competitive sport, games, gymnastics, dance and aquatic education. PE is an integral part of our children’s schooling, all children participate in a minimum of two hours a week and we consistently endeavour to make this time an enjoyable, engaging experience for all pupils. We have a full time specialist PE teacher who teaches all classes once per week.


The PE program at George Eliot teaches children to:


  • use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination.
  • play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending.
  • develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics].
  • perform dances using a range of movement patterns.
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team.
  • compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.


Please see the curriculum overview for more information about the PE curriculum.
