PE Subject Leader - Mr Williams
Vision for PE
The physical education curriculum at Hollybush Primary School has been designed to nurture and inspire children to lead physically healthy and active lifestyles, both in school and beyond. Pupils will engage in a variety of physically demanding activities and competitive sport and where possible to engage in participation in our wider community. Opportunities are provided for all pupils to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness. Children acquire, remember and have opportunities to practise and use key subject specific vocabulary throughout their Physical Education lessons. Through these opportunities, we instil not only a love of physical activity, but also develop the character of our children and embed values such as fairness, determination, respect and sportsmanship.
By the end of the pupils’ time at Hollybush, children will have had opportunities to develop competence in applying and refining a broad range of physical skills that can be applied in a variety of physical activities. We want children to develop a love of physical activity for personal pleasure and wellbeing as well for engaging in competitive sports and activity. We also work to nurture respect and cooperation in all pupils, alongside a commitment to building resilience through the power of practice. Most importantly, we want the children of Hollybush Primary School to have the skills to lead healthy, active lives. We are committed to increasing aspiration and positive mind sets for all pupils through delivery of the PE curriculum, and particularly for our most vulnerable disadvantaged and pupil premium children through regular opportunities for pupils to engage in sporting activities and to involvement of parents and community, sports coaches and other sporting role models.
On PE days children come to school dressed in their PE kits. PE kits must be in line with the expected standard of everyday school uniform.

- White polo shirt
- Black trainers
- Non branded grey/black/navy hoodie (school jumpers can be worn instead)
In Year 4 children go swimming to Bramley Baths
