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 and competitive activities to cater for individual pupil’s needs and abilities. We endeavor 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 help teach P.E on a Wednesday during creative curriculum along with our Level 5 P.E coaches. We work closely with our external coaches to develop a curriculum to meet the needs of our children. A 'progression of skills' document has been designed, ensuring that curriculum content is supported by children's developing skills across all year groups.  Children are taught a range of sports such as dance, gymnastics and games such as volleyball along with units focused on aiding and developing key fundamental skills and movements. Additionally, children from Year 4 and Year 3 take part in compulsory swimming sessions along with additional sessions for children in Years 5 to 6 who need it.

Mile Run

We strive to inspire healthy active lifestyles and we want our children to adopt this attitude. Everyday we take part in the mile run to get the children, and adults, moving. We are proud to be part of the 6840 schools who take part is this engaging initiative

Extra-Curricular Activity

We provide many exciting sporting after school clubs as part of our extended services. This ranges from multisports, dance, yoga and more. We offer extensive opportunities for all children to get involved in sport and physical activity. 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. 

Also, we are lucky enough to have multiple league teams such as football, netball team and tag rugby. These teams all train after school or at lunchtimes and participate in competitive matches after school and at weekends. You can see regular updates on the newsletter to track our participation. 

In addition to formal sporting fixtures, many other children had the opportunity to compete in inter-school events to promote competitive school sport.   Pupils from Year 3 to Year 6 are given the opportunity to participate in competitve games and KS1 take part in festivals led by Barnet Partnership for School Sport. Starting in 2017/18, we introduced intra-house competitions where children take part in various sports with their school house teams.
