At St Oswald's we promote the acquisition of PE skills through a range of physical activities, in line with the national curriculum programme of study, whilst encouraging children to enjoy physical education.  The EYFS statutory framework is the foundation for these skills and provides the building blocks for all future learning in Physical Education.

Children learn to understand the benefits of exercise and a healthy lifestyle. The school lays the foundations for the future so that children will want to be involved in physical activity throughout life. The competitive aspects of physical education are introduced and extended as the children move through the school.  Fair play and good sporting behaviour are considered to be very important.
