Where children come first; belonging and building together








PE at Beaminster St. Mary’s


At Beaminster St.Mary’s, we intend to inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities, as well as give children the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact in their own health and well-being. We want all children to experience a wide variety of sports and physical skills which will enhance life-long fitness and life choices.


Our Physical Education will challenge and promote self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and problem-solving. We aim to teach children to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team-based physical activities, allowing them to explore and express their personal and spiritual identity. Through our provision, children can flourish at sports in which they have a particular interest or flair for.


Children have equal opportunities to take part in a range of sports and physical activities within a challenging and supportive environment where effort, as well as success, is recognized. Children are encouraged to participate in exercise through-out the day during PE lessons, clubs, outdoor learning, outdoor play and competitive events.


All of our subjects include the same curriculum drivers, these are:



  • We aspire for pupils to embrace challenge with a growth mindset and show curiosity, independence and resilience in all that they do.


  • We aspire for pupils to become wise, respectful learners.


  • We aspire for pupils to become emotionally mature with a depth of language that enables them to share ideas effectively.


  • We aspire for pupils to become emotionally literate, tolerant, and appreciative of an ever-changing global environment.
