PE (Physical Education)

Welcome to our PE page

PE curriculum intent

At Hampton Hargate Primary School, we aim to deliver fun and enjoyable physical education lessons, where children can develop a love and passion for being physically active. Children will develop their knowledge of skills and understanding so that they can perform with increasing competence and knowledge. We are passionate about physical education, physical activity, school sport and celebrating sporting achievements outside of our school setting which is evident within our school culture.

We have a dynamic, diverse and engaging PE curriculum which encourages children to have physical literacy, thus helping children to develop a life-long participation in sport and physical activity. This can be achieved by encouraging positive attitudes and experiences within our PE sessions, physical activity and school sport. We also educate pupils about how to lead healthy and active lifestyles, thus best supporting pupils to make healthy and informed choices about their lives. Our broad range of activities within PE lessons, extra-curricular clubs, intra and interschool competitions and school club links aim to be inclusive, personalised and tailored to meet the individual needs of our children.

We believe that children in EYFS should have lots of time to practise and develop their fundamental movement skills (agility, balance and co-ordination) as well as their core skills (running, jumping, throwing, catching and striking) these will be developed throughout their time at Hampton Hargate Primary School.  During KS1 children are able to engage in competition both individually and with others, as well as being able to cooperate in range of increasingly challenging situations. These will be developed further in KS2 whilst children develop a broader range of skills and learning. They are encouraged to enjoy communicating, working collaboratively and competing with one another. They will be provided with opportunities to use subject specific vocabulary to help them evaluate, give feedback and improve their own performance and that of others. In KS2, the children will also take part in swimming and water safety sessions. The skills learnt during their time with us at primary school will continue to be embedded and developed during KS3 and beyond.

PE is associated with good health and wellbeing, and it supports the development of students' competence and confidence to take part in a range of physical activities that can become a central part of their lives, both in and outside of school. Our aim is to help our pupils to become independent, co-operative, collaborative learners through their PE sessions, who are developing teamwork and leadership skills so that they can build on them in their later life. We also encourage the children to become reflective learners so they can evaluate their performances and refine their skills to increase the quality and control of their learning and development.
