    To complete the work on the Purpose of PE, please consider what PE means in your school. Is there a clear understanding of the meaning and importance of the subject among teachers, children and families? What purpose does PE currently serve in your school?

    I am a trainee teacher, my experience of PE differs. Currently due to Covid in KS1 there is no P.E. timetabled. However, the children are given longer breaks and movement through play is the key focus. Children have some equipment they can play with at lunchtimes to create their own games.

    On the curriculum overview at my current placement school (without covid restrictions) there is the focus of invasion games however these are sport specific. Basketball, hockey & tennis in blocks of learning across the spring term. Then summer striking and fielding.
