Keep up to date with the latest Stoborough sports news here:

At Stoborough, we strive to create a culture which aims to inspire an active generation to enjoy PE, encourage each other and achieve. We offer a dynamic, varied and stimulating program of activity to ensure that all children progress physically through a fully inclusive PE curriculum. We encourage all children to develop their understanding of the way in which they can use their body, equipment and apparatus safely yet imaginatively to achieve their personal goals. We aspire for children to adopt a positive mind-set and strive towards goals with determination and resilience. Children are taught to observe and produce the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators. Thus embedding life-long values such as co-operation, collaboration and equity of play. We provide opportunities for children to learn how to stay safe by starting swimming lessons in Reception and continuing until children have become confident in the water, knowing how to keep safe and also meet the National Curriculum requirements of swimming 25m by the end of Year 6. Our PE Curriculum teaches children about the importance of healthy living and learning about the need for good nutrition. PE and sport can have a positive impact on readiness for learning, cognitive performance, confidence, life skills, wellbeing and physical literacy. As a school, we have been actively involved in the development of the Purbeck School Sport Partnership and we now work closely with Partnership Managers


We follow Complete PE, a scheme that has four underlying principles – Healthy Me, Social Me, Thinking Me and Physical Me. Pupils will understand the value of being physically active for their wellbeing. PE nurtures self-expression and communication.



We have been recognised as a Platinum school 2021-22! Well done to our staff, our pupils and their families for contributing towards this fantastic acheivement. We are proud to be part of The Purbeck and Christchurch Schools Sport Partnership.
