Hello and welcome to the PE page. Please enjoy our outlook below and attached documents.

Birchen Coppice Primary

Physical Education & Activity


We aim to provide the children with a good quality, varied, balanced and progressive PE experience here at Birchen Coppice, which will enable the pupils to become physically literate.  Pupils will develop positive physical virtues such as strength, speed, stamina, coordination, flexibility, agility and balance, as well as their physical confidence and enthusiasm. This outlook can be used to develop the pupils’ knowledge, skills and most importantly, the desire necessary to prepare them for a healthy, active lifestyle.

We hope to inspire our pupils to develop a lifelong interest in sport and instil a desire to remain physically active. In addition, we aim to see our children succeed and thrive in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities that will help with their lifelong health and fitness.



Pupils across the school will receive two sessions of a broad, balanced and progressive curriculum where their class teacher and/or also a specialist PE teacher will teach them. Class teachers will have access to support from a specialist PE teacher.

Pupils will have the opportunity to attend extra-curricular clubs and represent their house and the school at a wide range of sports. This is ably supported by our local District Sports Partnership – The Wyre Forest School Sports Partnership.

Lessons and extra-curricular clubs are supported by coaches from local clubs to help signpost pupils to further opportunities to be involved in sport locally.

Through active lessons and purposeful play at breaktimes and lunchtimes (bouldering walls, play equipment, playleaders etc) pupils will have the opportunity to meet the national expectation of 30 minutes of physical activity per day.


A Future

Pupils will develop a love for sport, continue this in to secondary school, join local clubs and enjoy a lifelong love of sport and physical exertion.

With pupils engaging with PE and school sport they can develop their physical skills as well as their social skills and social circles. This will have a positive impact on their emotional health and well-being and, with the pupils leading healthy active lives, they can hopefully perform better in other areas of life.
