We have achieved the Gold School Games Mark for commitment and engagement in the School Games for 2021/2022.


We use Get Set 4  PE as our PE curriculum which takes a holistic approach to developing a positive attitude to physical education and building active habits for a healthy lifestyle.

Progression of skills



Active Play Time

Children in Y1- Y6 have a 15 minute play time in the morning and a 30- 40 minute play time after lunch. During play times children are encouraged to be active. Sports and games equipment is available and daily games are provided in the Smooga pitch. Games markings are painted on the front playground which support active play including and active trail, hopscotch and twister.

There is also a Trim Trail and large climbing frame which classes can access daily.

As well as the two playgrounds and surrounding grassed areas, the school has a large playing field and a small wooded copse for further enhancing active, outdoor provision.

At Bampton, Physical Education (PE) supports children’s all-round development. As well as developing physical skills, PE teaches the children intellectual skills, helps them navigate complex social situations, and nurtures their emotional development.

We use the School Games Values of determination, passion, respect, honesty, self-belief and teamwork to underpin the PE curriculum as well as encouraging a lifetime love of sport and keeping fit.

We engage with and take part in Burford Partnership tournaments and festivals across all phases and stages to promote fair play, competitive team sport and building relationships with other schools across the partnership.

A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.’

Intent, Implementation and Impact Statement

PE Policy 2022-23


The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

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.


Swimming Programme

Swimming Provision is a requirement for KS2. We offer additional blocks of swimming lessons from Year 3 so children have the opportunity to build up their swimming skills over time throughout Key Stage 2. This is funded through our sports premium grant.

We hold an annual Sports Day which combines competitive and team events. Parents and carers are invited along to this event.

A range of workshops and extra curriculum clubs offer further opportunities for pupils try new activities and to stay fit and active (some are funded through the sports premium).
