Barrow Hedges Primary School


In this section...

A range of skills is taught through skill-based lessons and are then applied to competitive games including netball, football, hockey, rugby, tennis cricket and rounders.   Athletics is also taught to develop both track and field skills.  Outdoor activities are taught through orienteering and OAA (Outdoor Adventurous Activities) both in school and on residential trips.  As part of the National Curriculum children in Year 3 and 4 also have weekly swimming lessons for one term.  Central to these activities is the promotion of positive attitudes in the form values as well as self-confidence, self-discipline and appropriate behaviour matched to the activity, a sense of fair play and social and moral responsibility.

Emphasis is put on the enjoyment derived from doing one’s best, improving skills, becoming healthier and fitter and encountering challenge of new activities and experiences.  There are also opportunities for children to represent the school in a number of different sports.  Children in Year 6 can also develop leadership skills in lessons and by becoming a PE Leader (Horis HIPPO).
