PE at Livingstone

P.E is not only an integral part of our school curriculum it is an essential element of our school ethos. The school believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupils' physical and emotional development and health. 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 physical activity if it is not covered during creative curriculum. 

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 fencing and yoga, which children love. 


We offer extensive opportunities for all children to get involved in competitive sport. The school has a boys and girls football teams, a netball team, a mixed cross country team, an athletics squad, a tag rugby team, dance lessons and a boccia 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 run with assistance of the East Barnet Secondary School P.E team. Pupils from Reception to Year 6 are given the opportunity to participate in games and activities such as trampolining.
