PE & Sport
PE and Sport is very much embedded in our life at Hayes Primary School. We recognise the value and impact of high quality PE and school sport can help children develop their coordination, fitness and their sense of fair play. Our PE Curriculum for KS1 is based on multi skills approach to learning and in KS2 it is more sports specific combined with opportunities for competition in accordance with the national curriculum.
We follow the DofE National Curriculum programme of study for KS1 and KS2 https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-physical-education-programmes-of-study
All pupils are able to try new activities as well as enhancing their existing skills in a range of environments. In addition pupils can develop leadership, coaching and officiating skills. We provide all pupils with 2 hours of timetabled high quality PE a week, this includes indoor, Real PE sessions with the class teacher or HLTA or Forest School and outdoor PE with a specialist coach leading the sessions.
Numerous pupils represent the school and are part of community clubs that Hayes has links with. Pupil’s achievements are also celebrated and shared with parents, carers and the wider school community.
Competitive sport is also something we value highly at Hayes Primary School. Pupils from our school regularly participate in competitive games and sports with other schools; both locally, trust wide and sometimes regionally. Inter house competitions take place during curriculum time for Years 5 and 6.
Although competition beyond the school is important and supports collaborative team work, as well as enabling pupils to recognise their own strengths and evaluate their performance. The school’s overriding aim is to help all its pupils enjoy being active and to encourage them to use their creativity and imagination.
Healthy lifestyles are also very important to the ethos of Hayes Primary School. We encourage children to enjoy all physical activities and become aware of the benefits of exercise and a healthy lifestyle.
