The Hill Primary School

Physical Education

At The Hill Primary School, We believe that Physical Education within school can inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other, physically demanding activities.  We encourage young people to be motivated to adopt a healthy lifestyle and foster positive values such as fairness and respect towards others. The school believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, makes a vital and unique contribution to a pupil’s physical development, emotional health, and overall well-being.

Within our PE lessons we aim to:

  • To deliver a Physical Education programme which meets statutory National Curriculum requirements and that is broad and balanced in terms of time and content.
  • To provide high quality physical activity which considers the needs and interests of all pupils,
  • To enable children to develop and explore physical skills with increasing control and co-ordination; thus increasing competence.
  • Encourage children to work and play with others in a range of group situations;
  • Increase children’s ability to use what they have learnt to improve the quality and control of their performance;
  • Develop positive attitudes and behaviours, as well as creativity in competitive and non-competitive environments;
  • To maximise the overall amount of time spent in being physically active within lessons.
  • Develop the children’s knowledge of safety and an appreciation of the principles of safe practice through correct handling of PE equipment and a commitment to ensuring safe and effective exercise procedures.
