Physical Education (PE)

PE Intent

When pupils leave Hormead, we want them to have the knowledge and understanding of how to lead a healthy and active life, enabling them to make positive decisions in relation to healthy eating, exercise and mental wellbeing. Our pupils will demonstrate resilience and have the confidence and fitness to access a range of activities. 

Our curriculum will support the development of a broad and varied range of basic fine and gross motor skills and promote local and national role models within sport. The PE curriculum will focus on more than just physical skills; it will teach pupils about the links between health, fitness, and their wellbeing. 

As a school, we value the impact that PE and Sport can have in other areas of the curriculum including, encouraging the use of active learning in all our subjects. PE and Sport will also play a role in developing key social skills through a range of competitions, experiences and attempting to remove existing barriers to long term participation in physical fitness.

For our pupils, the curriculum will have an additional focus on creating sustainable opportunities for pupils to engage in sport in the local community and supporting the school’s overall focus on pupil wellbeing.

It is our intent to inspire children to discover life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.

Our intent is to ensure that the we fulfil all the requirements of the national curriculum for PE including:

  • Developing competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • Being physically active for sustained periods of time
  • Engaging in competitive sports and activities
  • Leading healthy, active lives

This will give children context to their learning and children will then understand the value of PE to them now, and in their future.

School Houses

At Hormead Primary School, we operate a House System. The Houses are named after four elements; Fire, Wind, Earth and Water. Each of the houses are linked to a special story in the bible to bring a sense of belonging and pride for their house. Children represent their Houses in Sports Day and other sporting/competitive events throughout the year. The Houses each have two House Captains who will help to run and organise the sporting events as well as support the children in their Houses.
