Ladycross Infant and Nursery School

PE curriculum

Our school aims to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport. Through good physical education, whole school values and a whole child approach, we aim to nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best. We listen to our children wants and needs and provide them with a range of active experiences and clubs.

We want to aid our children in obtaining the values and skills to celebrate and respect the success of others, as well as modestly celebrating their own successes. We aim to ensure that our delivery of physical education allows all children to have the skills and mindset to leave primary school with the capabilities to be successful in their sporting challenges and active lifestyles at secondary school and beyond.

We strive to educate both our children and families to develop a greater understanding on how to live healthy lifestyles and make healthy choices. We are dedicated to ensuring healthy minds, as well as bodies and will continue to support our children's well-being. We have strong links with local clubs and partnerships within our community to ensure the children and families receive the support and knowledge they need.


PE kit

Ear rings should be removed for PE for boys and girls, or children must tape them up (in which case please send tape in with your child). Please tie long hair back on PE days. 

• Black or navy shorts / joggers / sweatshirt / hoody (these should not have branded slogans)
• White T-shirt
• Black plimsolls or white/black trainers

If the correct PE kit is not worn you will be sent a reminder slip. Should there be another time when your child doesn’t have the right kit we will phone you and ask you to bring it in. If you’re unable to bring in the correct kit then we may have to ask your child to participate in an alternative activity to their scheduled PE lesson. 

PE days 

As a reminder, PE days are Mondays and Thursdays for Year 1 and Wednesdays for  all of Year 2. Then, Freedman Class will do PE on Tuesday and Dahl and Walliams will do their second session on Friday. Year 1 and Year 2 pupils come into school in their PE kit. Reception PE is on Tuesdays but they do not change into PE kit, they stay in uniform (but Reception children still need to have ear rings removed / covered).
