PE Schemes of Work

Primary Physical Education Schemes of Work

Our Key Stage 1 and 2 Schemes of Work will support primary school teachers to plan and deliver a range of progressive and active PE lessons which inspire and engage all of their students. Each Unit of Work provides six example session plans which link clearly to the learning objectives across the unit and to our holistic assessment matrix. For each of the six sessions, teaching points, differentiation, vocabulary and questions are included to bring out the learning and to progress students within the session. The Games Appendices and Glossaries help to explain the games and terminology used in each Scheme of Work. In some Schemes, additional resources are provided such as music, videos and photographs to support the teacher further.

For Early Years teachers we have produced a separate Scheme of Work which has 32 Activity Cards to support Physical Development as well as guidance on the ‘Early Learning Goals’ linked to Physical Activity.

New Gymnastics Edition 2

We have recently revised our Gymnastics Scheme of Work. The new Gymnastics scheme has been developed in collaboration with Gary Kirby, International Performance Coach and qualified Tutor and Assessor with British Gymnastics.  Gary has worked with the MSSP team to review and rewrite the Learning Objectives and the Lesson Activities, to develop easy to follow skill development cards, new pulse raisers, muscle activations and 130 supporting videos. We believe this will enable more teachers (especially those with less experience and confidence) to deliver gymnastics activities within PE to pupils with varying ability and prior learning.  If you would like to upgrade to the new scheme please contact us for more information.


‘This is an excellent resource for teaching P.E. and has many attractive and helpful features:

  • A simple format for all year groups and topic blocks which cover the year
  • Tips for teaching and learning
  • Simple illustrations to explain the format of games
  • Suggestions for differentiation – often a weakness in lessons
  • Questions for children so they can demonstrate learning
  • Gold, silver and bronze awards as simple assessments. Bronze is below the expected level but children would be proud of this and have the incentive of gaining silver

‘I am sure that schools would find this scheme ideal, either as a core to ensure the full coverage of PE in the curriculum or as an edition to their existing scheme of work.’

Roger Easthope, OBE (For services to education and school sport)

Former Head Teacher and current School’s Inspector

‘As a school, we use the MSSP PE scheme of work.  It has been a Godsend to our teachers.  it is used across the school, from early-years to Year 6 and has eased the workload for teachers and increased their confidence in delivering quality PE lessons.  One of the fundamental gifts of this SoW is that has clear progression through the years which means the children are given chances to improve in a less repetitive manner.  It is also PE delivered in an enjoyable manner as each unit of work contains a selection of games to allow children to hone their skills and practice particular areas of a sport.  The scheme is very easy to follow, consistent throughout and a good mix of both physical activity as well as helping children to develop an understanding of what contributes to a healthy lifestyle.  I highly recommend this scheme which has clearly been developed by skilled practitioners.’

Finn Coughlan

PE Coordinator, Pelham Primary School, Merton

‘I have had excellent feedback from all teachers saying how detailed and self explanatory the step by step plans are. The teachers feel more confident using the plans and then the extra resources to help them deliver their pe/ gymnastics sessions are a bonus.’
