'A high-quality physical education curriculum...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 embed values such as fairness and respect.'
Physical Education National Curriculum
At Hall Green Infant School we love PE and we aim to provide our children with an engaging PE curriculum to enhance their health, build character, improve wellbeing and support them to fulfil their potential. We believe that PE forms the foundation for the growth of the whole child and provides opportunities for children to develop their personal and social skills. We aim for all our children to thoroughly enjoy participating in sports and encourage them to try new activities and find a sport which they are passionate about. We have carefully designed our PE curriculum to expose the children to a wide range of sports activities during their time at our school. We also provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities to engage and inspire children in PE and healthy living. Children can participate in clubs such as tennis, yoga, dance, football, circus skills and cooking; we host a wide variety of enrichment activities including Health Week, Sports Day and Soccer Aid. We promote an active lifestyle through our daily teaching by encouraging children to participate in a minimum of 30 minutes exercise throughout the school day by using active brain breaks, running the daily mile and supported activities in the playground. We hope that all of our children leave Hall Green Infant School with the knowledge they need to lead healthy lives and have a passion for sports and fitness.
