Is It Time To Renew Your School’s PE Policy?

You may be following a policy that’s been in place for years, you may be thinking about updating your policy, or you may not even currently have one…

Whatever your situation is, now is a great time to sit down and review the procedures and policies you have in place. We know that writing policies isn’t a job most PE specialists dream of completing, so we are here to help!

Why Do We Need A PE Policy?
Just like any other aspect of school life, PE is a valued and important part of the curriculum and having a policy specifically of the subject shows this. A PE policy shows what your vision for the subject is, what you aim to achieve through your delivery and how you will implement it. It should be visible on your website for anyone to access and should show staff members, parents and outsiders (e.g. Ofsted) what PE means to you.

What Should Be In A PE Policy?
Your PE policy can be as detailed as you wish, but as a basic rule, should include:

    • An overview of PE in your school as a whole. Why do you deliver the way you do? Is it linked to the needs of your children, research you have undertaken or based on the expertise of your staff?
    • Your overall vision for PE. This is like your mission statement. What are you trying to achieve through your PE sessions?
    • The overarching aims of PE in your setting. Are you aiming to create pathways to external clubs? Are you aiming to improve the fitness and health of your children?
    • A breakdown of how PE works in your school. State the number of sessions each child will receive a week, if you have any targeted intervention programmes and how competitions work for you. 
    • Consider the links to your Sport Premium action plan and projected expenditure for the year. Although most of the information about this will be in your Sport Premium report, it is good practice to have correlation across the two. If increasing the opportunities to take part in competition is an aim for the year, this can be included in your policy too. 

Where Can I Go For Support?
We are here to help! Our Ultimate PE Leader Pack includes an example PE policy, as well as extra information on the need for writing a policy.
“The Ultimate PE Leader Pack is by far and away the most comprehensive document I’ve seen for PE Leads all in one place. It will be the best £7.99 my school spends its PESS premium on.” –  Lindsey Asher
