Subject Leader: Alyssa Walne and Tracey Smith



The fundamental skills of movement (FSoM) are at the heart of the PE curriculum at The Bridge School. Developing these skills (methods of movement, balance and object control) can support pupils’ awareness of their own bodies, promote health and well-being, build core skills and strength and demonstrate what is needed for a healthy lifestyle.


Our PE curriculum allows pupils to follow their own natural curiosity related to movement, through child-led exploration. Pupils have access to a wide range of motivating and engaging movement based activities to facilitate their learning and develop their physical skills and knowledge. Our aim is for pupils to build self-esteem and work cooperatively with their peers, whilst developing vital gross and fine motor skills that will benefit them throughout their lives.


Within all PE lessons, pupils’ focus on the importance of being active and enjoying physical activity. Pupils consistently have oppurtunities to extend their learning. Practitioners provide differentiated support based in line with physical development needs and scaffold pupils’ next steps.


At The Bridge School, we use bespoke, sequenced, small-step descriptors that outline the key knowledge and skills within PE. These descriptors provide an easy to use, aspirational framework that ensures all pupils make progress in what they know, what they can do and what they can remember.


Across all subjects and at all key stages, the overall intent is that the pupil engages, achieves, and makes the most personal progress they can over time to enable them to have the most fulfilling, enjoyable, and independent life possible.
