Physical Education (PE)
A Hoyle Court Athlete
“Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity”
(John F Kennedy)
At Hoyle Court Primary School it is our vision to develop the Physical Education of our pupils through an engaging and challenging curriculum that inspires all children. We want all pupils to feel they belong as part of a team and believe in their healthy potential. Children have the opportunity to plan, play and lead sports. Our inclusive curriculum ensures we learn through communicating, collaborating and competing with each other.
Every child will leave our school knowing and valuing the importance of a healthy lifestyle. They will be given experiences to focus on improving their fitness, health and well-being through our stimulating curriculum. We do this by developing the attitudes, skills and knowledge required to be a leader and provide memorable experiences throughout a student’s journey within Physical Education.
Children are taught values such as fairness and respect through competitive sports. In years 3-6 pupils have the opportunity to represent our school in competitions. We inspire our pupils by learning about local sporting heroes and clubs including the Brownlee Brothers, Bradford City and Bradford Bulls. At Hoyle Court we work closely with the local community, offering many extra-curricular opportunities to allow pupils to pursuit sporting interests.
By the time children leave Hoyle Court they have learnt a range of sports including athletics, gymnastics, dance, games and outdoor activities. Children will learn key skills, knowledge and understanding of each sport. In year five, each child also has the opportunity to learn to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.
