PE Intent Statement


Our intent for PE at St Leonard's CofE Primary School is to encourage sport across all year groups, promoting the inclusion for all abilities.  We offer a range of activities to encourage boys and girls of all ages to participate in a variety of activities and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.  We provide the children with the opportunities to compete in sports within our own school as well as with linking with other schools, promoting good sportsmanship, following the Olympic Values and helping them to understand healthy competition.

The PE Leader at St Leonard's is Miss Preece.  If you need have any questions about PE, please feel free to contact the school office at 01827 213995 or email directly at

Mrs Young has a Dance group who are working hard learning a new routine to share at our Talent show and at Cannock's Gotta Dance. 

Robins enjoying their Enrichment Sports - Boxing

Robins have enrichment sports every other week, where they get to try new sports.  In this block, they got to try boxing, which they really enjoyed, especially as they were learning new skills.

Robins enjoying Multi-skills

In Multi-skills, the children got to develop a range of moving and handling skills, thinking carefully about their spatial awareness.  They enjoyed playing a range of different games. 

Kingfishers Superheroes Dance

As part of their Superhero topic, the children created a dance, using moves they have seen linked to Superheroes.  They worked in groups to make their own routines.

Kingfishers developing their Gymnastic skills

The children looked at different stretches and poses in their gymnastics.  They created different shapes and simple routines to share to the rest of the class.
