Physical Education

Physical Education (PE)


At Northwood Park Primary, all pupils receive a minimum of two hours of PE and games per week through which we develop the six areas of activity as set out in the National Curriculum – Dance, Games, Gymnastics, Athletics, Outdoor and Adventurous activities and Swimming. 


During KS2 children are given the opportunity to swim and we aim for all pupils leaving the school to be able to swim at least 25m unaided. All pupils take part in a range of tournaments and sports festivals both within school between year groups and with other schools. 


We believe that Physical Education (PE) is fundamental to our children’s development and learning. Not only does it engage and motivate children, but it is a great way for our children to develop life skills such as teamwork, co-operation, determination, mutual support and respect.
