Hillsborough Nursery & Primary School

Believe. Belong. Become.


At Hillsborough Primary School our vision for Physical Education and Sport is that every child should have the opportunity to take part in physical activity on a regular basis and become more physically confident and competent. We hope that, through all the sporting opportunities and physical activity we offer children throughout our curriculum, the children will potentially develop a love and passion for sport and continue this into their later lives.


We aim to provide the children with fun, exciting and active PE lessons every week and to keep the children healthy and active with at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day, and by educating them on a healthy, balanced diet and lifestyle.


At Hillsborough Primary, we also strive to give as many children as possible the opportunity to compete in a variety of competitions. We hope that in doing so the children will develop greater confidence, team work and learn to win or lose with grace and sportsmanship.


Our Curriculum Aims to:


  • Ensure our pupils believe in themselves to achieve throughout all areas in the PE curriculum and reflect on self-progress.
  • Ensure all children leave school with an experience of a variety of sports studied and skill sets required that can link to becoming positive role models to others in the community.
  • Ensure all children have a greater knowledge about their own personal development in skill sets that can be used in everyday life. Developing patience, resilience, respect and teamwork to determine the understanding of belonging.


Our Curriculum Content Includes:


  • Games
  • Dance
  • Gymnastic
  • Net and Racket Sports
  • Athletics.


Children in Year 4 are given the opportunity to learn to swim. This then follows on into Year 5 and Year 6 for any children who still need any additional support with their swimming practice.
