The Government’s PE and School Sport vision and objectives which are supported by national partners Sport England, afPE, Youth Sport Trust, UK Coaching and Active Partnerships are as follows:


All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.


To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.

We would expect indicators of such improvement to include:                                                         

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  • The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport

The Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that:

All children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
