At St Nicholas, we aim to provide a broad and balanced PE curriculum which inspires children to develop resilience, teamwork, communication, sportsmanship and ultimately go on to lead healthy lifestyles.

PE Curriculum

We use Get Set 4 PE as our planning scheme to ensure that skills and knowledge progress throughout our children’s time in primary school. PE lessons are led by class teachers and specialist coaches from outside of school; this enables us to provide a variety of sports as well as meeting the aims of the National Curriculum and EYFS framework.


See the documents below for more information about our curriculum along with the National Curriculum, how we meet the EYFS framework and a progression of skills. 

Specialist teaching

At St Nicholas we use specialist coaches who provide lessons focusing on:

  • Football
  • Dance
  • Basketball
  • Swimming

This year, Bath Rugby Foundation have been providing sessions for both of our resource bases encouraging them to take part in sports. Along with Maddy’s Mark (a charitable organisation) Bath Rugby Foundation have also provided Tag Rugby sessions for children in years 5 and 6.

Enhancing PE

We offer many opportunities outside of our PE lessons for children to participate in sports. In the summer term we hold sports days which allow every child in school to take part and earn points for their house and towards the sports day cup.

We offer after school football and basketball clubs, if you would like more information about these please contact the school office.

We participate in many local sporting events, both competitive and non-competitive including:

  • Quad Kids competitions
  • Gymnastics competitions
  • Swimming gala
  • Football league
  • Netball cup
  • Dance Umbrella 
  • Inclusive events and many more.
Be inspired!

"Sport has the power to change the world." Nelson Mandela was not wrong when he coined that phrase! He continued with, “Sport has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where there was only despair”

Nelson Mandela


“I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Michael Jordan
