Our high-quality physical education curriculum supports children to understand and manage their bodies in a range of contexts – individually and as part of a team – developing gross motor skills, balance, coordination, strength, flexibility and fitness.
The wide range of activities on offer here at Hargrave Park give all children opportunity to find physical activities they are good at and can enjoy.
PE lessons include dance, gymnastics, games, swimming, orienteering and sessions with specialist sports coaches including in Tennis and Cricket in the summer months. Regular, high-quality sessions with Rightway Sports throughout the year and across the school ensure that children build their physical skills and experience in a meaningful and consistent way.
Children have a range of ways to participate in competitive sports, including in-school House Sports Competitions and Network and Borough Sports competitions in a range of sports including rugby, netball, football, athletics, orienteering, golf and boccia.
We also give children a range of opportunities to participate in a wider range of physical activity outside of PE lessons. These enrichment activities include ‘Bikeability’, sailing lessons and ‘Clip and Climb’.
The extended school day provides children with physical activity at breakfast club and after school club, run by Rightway Sports.
This range of experience supports children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness, fostering good habits and building character, helping to embed values such as fairness and respect.
We teach our children to:
develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
be physically active for sustained periods of time
