Our PE vision is to provide fun and challenging lessons to develop children’s agility, balance and coordination working confidently and competently both individually and in team settings. As a school we follow the REAL PE scheme.  We believe that physical education is vital to the development of pupils’ physical and emotional development and health. The physical education curriculum aims to develop the pupils’ knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities.


  • To engage and challenge EVERY child.
  • To develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities with increasing balance, coordination and control.
  • Children are physically active for sustained periods of time daily- daily ‘Hatchersize’ and playground games
  • To engage children in competitive sports and activities
  • To enable children to find a sense of purpose, achievement, fulfilment and enjoyment in physical activity and lead healthy, active lives.
  • To develop children’s understanding of how to succeed in a range of physical activities and how to evaluate their own and others’ success.
  • To develop children’s positive attitudes to physical endeavour including perseverance, fair play and sporting behaviour and the ability to cope with success and failure in competitive and non-competitive activities.

We teach P.E. as a separate subject in two lessons of 60 minutes per week.  A balance of individual and team, cooperative and competitive differentiated activities aimed to ensure inclusion for all.  Children at Keep Hatch are taught a skill centred programme of P.E through Core Real PE, Real Gym and Real Dance. Swimming, games and athletics are taught in the summer term.  At key points during the day, outside of PE lessons, the children take part in an active brain break known as Hatchercise. This consists of jogging around the playground, moving in classrooms or active walks before returning to classrooms. If weather is bad children also do some active movement in the classrooms.

Provision for PE is in line with all of our policies and Every Child Matters guidance. All children have equal access to the PE curriculum. Delivery will be differentiated appropriately. All children take part in Intra-house competitions set each half term.
