Our approach to Physical Education

Intent behind curriculum delivery 

Context behind curriculum delivery: PE lessons at Hollymount are built to give confidence and improve technical skills to all children. These skills are developed not only by class teachers but also a qualified coach and external sports providers where possible. In addition to learning the skills required to play a range of sports, pupils also learn about team building, leadership of others and respecting the rules of how to be a “good sport. As children develop a love for the game, strong emphasis is placed on giving all children opportunities to participate in competitive events against each other and against other schools in the Borough. 

The physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and provides opportunities for children to become confident in a way which supports their health, fitness and mental well-being.
