Subject Focus - Physical Education (PE)


At Hermitage Primary School, we recognise the importance of regular physical activity and aim to give children the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact on their own physical health and well-being.

Our ambition is that all children experience a wide variety of sports and physical skills which will enhance life-long fitness, life choices and self -confidence.  We believe that participation in sporting activity is a key element of developing a school community where children feel they belong.  Sporting opportunities are an important part of our provision beyond the lesson.  Children are encouraged to engage in competitive sports and activities in lessons and through other sporting events, learning how to be fair, be part of a team and have respect for others.

Through our Physical Education programme of study, we encourage the children to meet the requirements of The National Curriculum, which states that ‘a high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities.  It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.  Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to demand values such as fairness and respect.
