Welcome to our Physical Education learning page!

At Hogarth Primary School we believe that Physical Education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is essential to ensure children attain optimum physical and emotional development and good health. We intend to deliver high-quality teaching through the use of specialist coaches and well-planned learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education. We want to teach children the important life lesson of how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team and as individuals to develop confidence. Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Hogarth, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes.
- PE at Hogarth Primary School provides challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of sporting activities including; invasion games, net & wall games, strike and field games, gymnastics, dance, swimming and outdoor & adventure.
- Our 'Get Set 4 PE' scheme provides progressive activities that are designed to inspire and engage pupils, allowing them to explore and develop skills and embed knowledge. The lessons are accompanied by supporting resources including resource cards, skills videos and music.
- The curriculum sets out the PE units which are to be taught throughout the year and ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met.
- Pupils participate in a high-quality PE lesson each week, with a specialist coach for an hour.
- Children are encouraged to participate in the varied range of extra-curricular activities (when we are allowed to complete this- following Government guidelines).
- Children are invited to attend competitive sporting events within the local area. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also mental well-being.
- Children participate in workshops covering a variety of sports throughout the year. For example, a skipping course which provides the children with an opportunity to develop, improve their fitness and to try something new.
- We are also active members of the “Daily Mile”, to help meet the government target of all children being active for at least 60 minutes a day.
Children will participate in a variety of sports through quality teaching that is engaging and fun as well as celebrating individual sporting achievements through the PE webpage. Children will learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness, many of whom also enjoy the success of competitive sports at home. We equip our children with the necessary skills and a love for sport.
