Curriculum Intent

At Elmhurst School we actively encourage all of our pupils to adopt a positive and healthy lifestyle. All pupils are given opportunities to develop their Physical Literacy through a variety of activities and experiences, including: games, dance, gym, swimming and outdoor adventurous learning. Through providing positive experiences of physical activity, we ensure that children develop a love of being active and an awareness of the mental and physical benefits of remaining active for life. We provide this through a skills-based PE curriculum, with challenge and support for all pupils.


The underpinning intent of our curriculum is to create confident, motivated and physically literate children. In order to achieve this goal we focus on the four elements of Physical Literacy in the delivery of our PE curriculum:

  • Motivation
  • Confidence 
  • Physical Competence  
  • Knowledge and Understanding


We believe that all children are on a lifelong journey through physical literacy and we aim to give them the best possible start.
