Physical Education at Hensall Community Primary School

At Hensall, we have a clear vision of what we would like all of our children to achieve in PE. It is our intention that PE will be delivered via high quality lessons that are fun, engaging and will inspire all pupils to lead physically active lives and life-long participation. Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils experience a range of sports and activities, where they develop the fundamental skills and competence to excel. Our curriculum also develops physical literacy and allows children to learn about themselves, the importance of regular exercise and living a healthy lifestyle. 


Our children have the opportunity to experience a range of PE activities throughout a week. On Tuesday afternoons, all classes participate in Dance sessions led by a qualified Dance teacher. Throughout the school year, classes in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 are timetabled to attend swimming lessons led by high-quality instructors. By the time our children reach the end of Key Stage 2, they strive to be confident and competent swimmers and meet curriculum expectations. Children also have the opportunities to attend extra-curricular activities led by external sports coaches or staff. Throughout the year, we also ensure that our children participate in Inter-House competitions, where they work collaboratively to challenge themselves and compete against other children from within school. As well as this, children have the opportunities to represent the school in competitions against other local primary schools and gain a sense of pride and accomplishment from competing. 


At Hensall, we are committed to improving and maintaining a positive wellbeing for everybody in our community. The implementation of our 'Wellbeing-Way Track' in 2019, has ensured that our children have an extra space to complete physical activity throughout the day. Our track also allows our children to socialise whilst exercising and integrate with other children from different year groups. The track is used daily by all classes for 15 minutes in the afternoon, as well as at breaktimes and is an excellent way for all children to be solically active and lead healthy lifestyles. Please take a look at the video created by North Yorkshire Sport, where we talk about the benefits of our Daily Mile Track and how it is improving and helping the wellbeing of our children and staff throughout school.
