P.E. at Hadleigh Community Primary School plays a vital part of everyday school life. All pupils have two hours of P.E. timetabled each week to cover the six main areas of the National Curriculum which are dance, gymnastics, games, swimming, athletics and outdoor and adventurous activities.  Swimming is offered for children in KS2.  A healthy lifestyle is also promoted.  Alongside the P.E. Curriculum the children have the opportunity to participate in numerous lunchtime and after school sports clubs including running club, tag rugby, games club, football, hockey, rounders, netball, dance and fitness, cricket, basketball, and tennis.  A selection of these are offered at different times throughout the school year.

Fun, enjoyment, confidence, competence and self esteem are the forefront of our PE delivery.  Children in Nursery, Reception and KS1 develop the fundamental skills such as aiming and throwing, balance, co-ordination, control, and movement. In KS2 children are able to use these fundamental skills to develop their knowledge and understanding of invasion games such as football, basketball, netball, tag rugby and hockey.  These skills are also transferrable to striking and fielding games such as cricket and rounders, together with net games such as tennis and volleyball.

Children are given the opportunity to participate in the local school primary pyramid festivals and competitions.  As a school we have enjoyed much success competing at county, regional and national level.  On a regular basis school fixtures are arranged in many sports which enables the children to be proud to represent their school. We also organise in-house team colour competitions where the children from each team colour compete against one another.

As a school we feel community sports links are essential and we therefore work closely with the local football, rugby, cricket, athletics, gymnastics, dance, golf, and swimming clubs.  We liaise with our School Games Organiser, as well as our Primary PE Partnership Organiser at Hadleigh High School.
