PE and Sports
At Valley Invicta Primary School at East Borough Physical Education (PE) is an important part of our curriculum. It has been designed and developed to give pupils the skills, attributes and cultural capital that they need to succeed in life.
It is our intention, that when teaching the PE curriculum, we develop the enjoyment of physical activity, giving pupils the courage and confidence to try new activities and build resilience and determination with all they do.
We follow the aims of the national curriculum to ensure that all children:
- 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.
The coherently planned and sequenced curriculum builds the pupils’ skills, knowledge and understanding over time. This can be applied to any physical activity, including competitive situations, in school and beyond.
Pupils’ cultural capital is enhanced by the broad range of sports and activities planned for. This includes minority sports such as handball and pop lacrosse as well as outward bound pursuits. Many of these sports are additionally run as clubs throughout the year that all pupils, including disadvantaged and SEND, are encouraged to attend.

As PE is such an essential subject for health and wellbeing, it is important that children have the correct kit to be able to take part.
Our PE kit comprises of:
- Plain white t-shirt
- Black or Navy blue shorts (not cycling shorts)
- Plimsolls or trainers
- Black, grey or navy tracksuit (not leggings)
- No jewellery or earrings to be worn.
Please label all items of PE kit with your child’s name.
