School level


This section supports teachers in planning for and structuring PE and extra-curricular provision in order to provide maximum opportunities for the development of physical literacy. It is not intended that the development of FMS replaces the Physical Education lesson. Rather, it is intended that this skill development is integrated into the PE lesson in line with the overall school plan. In this way, the teacher focuses a lens on skill development within a lesson that is based on one of the strands of the PE curriculum.

Begin the planning process by selecting the appropriate strand according to the school plan, and then prepare a lesson on that strand that places a focus on a particular FMS. In this way, teachers can maximise the development of FMS as part of the provision of a broad and balanced PE programme. For ease of use, the colours and icons illustrating the strands of the PE curriculum below are used throughout the resource and in the planning templates.

Sample Whole School Plan

This plan is not intended to be prescriptive nor exhaustive. The planning process should be conducted at whole school level and should meet the needs of the individual school. Review the plan each year.
