Children receive at least 1.5 hours of dedicated PE time per week. These sessions, focusing on both development of skills and games experience, are taught by a specialist member of the coaching staff from Nation Sports.
Over the year, the children are exposed to the full PE curriculum and develop their skills in dance, athletics, gymnastics and games. Swimming lessons also take place each week for key year groups so that all children have the opportunity to become confident swimmers by the time they finish primary school.
Other Sporting Opportunities
In addition to these lessons, we offer lunchtime clubs including football club (for both boys and girls) and dance. Nation Sports also offer after school sports clubs including gymnastics, football and dance.
We also offer an outdoor residential education learning experience for Key Stage 2 pupils.
As children progress through the school they are also given opportunities to take part in borough -wide competitions and some children have even gone on to represent the borough in wider London events.
Physical Education (PE) is a statutory subject and highly valued at Harrington Hill. Physical activity is integral to the good health of our children and thus, suitable PE kit is essential in ensuring that pupils access the PE National Curriculum to its potential, and participate safely and comfortably in physical activity at school. We believe that a uniform kit encourages our children to have a sense of belonging to a community and promotes a feeling of pride and equality.
Harrington Hill PE Kit is compulsory and consists of:
- Black, grey, navy shorts/leggings/tracksuit bottoms
- Plain white or red t-shirt
- Suitable trainers (these can be the trainers usually worn to school)
