PE at Livingstone

P.E is not only an integral part of our school curriculum but it is an essential element of our school ethos. The school believes that physical education, which is experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupils' physical, emotional and health development. We strive to provide a balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities to cater for individual pupil’s needs and abilities. The schemes of work are based on progressive learning objectives, using varied and flexible teaching styles. We endeavour to provide appropriate, stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning situations for all pupils. We want to promote an understanding of the many benefits of exercise, through a balanced range of relevant activities. Physical education is considered as a vehicle to facilitate access to cross-curricular themes, skills and dimensions, rather than a subject concerned exclusively with the acquisition of motor skills and techniques


Children are required to receive 2 hours of physical activity a week. At Livingstone, we employ qualified coaches to teach P.E on a Wednesday during creative curriculum. This is to ensure children have professional teaching and are given access to a range of diverse sports. Children are taught a range of sports such as dance, gymnastics and games such as volleyball. On top of the employment of professional coaches, teachers also teach P.E to ensure that children receive their entitlement of education lessons and physical activity if it is not covered during creative curriculum. Additionally, children from Year 4 take part in compulsory swimming sessions during Autumn and Spring. In the summer term, Year 3 will be swimming along with additonal sessions for children in Years 5 to 6. 

Extra-Curricular Sports

Children at Livingstone have the opportunity to take part in a range of exciting after school clubs. As well as football, netball, tag rugby, this year we have added and yoga, which children love. 

We offer extensive opportunities for all children to get involved in competitive sport. Through tracking participation levels, we offer an 'active club' for those who do not have the opportunity to take part in an after school club. This allows children from Years 1 to 6 to engage in physical activity. Also, we are lucky enough to have a boys and girls football teams, a netball team and a tag rugby team. These teams all train after school or at lunchtimes and participate in competitive matches after school and at weekends.

In addition to formal sporting fixtures, many other children had the opportunity to compete in inter-school events  Pupils from Reception to Year 6 are given the opportunity to participate in games. Such as multi-sport festivals, cheerleading and boccia. Starting in 2017/18, we introduced intrahouse competitions where children take part in various sports with their school house teams.

We have many competitions so please head towards the Sporting Events tab to find out more.
