Physical Education and Sports


Hadrian Park delivers a high-quality physical education curriculum which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. There are numerous opportunities to compete in sport and other activities which build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.


School Aims:

1. Provide opportunities for pupils to experience a broad range of physical activities.

2. Ensure all pupils are physically active for sustained periods of time.

3. Provide children with the life skills needed to lead healthy, active lives.

Our PE offer at Hadrian Park ensures that all children receive a minimum of 2 hours high quality curriculum PE every week. Alongside our PE curriculum we provide opportunities for all pupils to be physically active throughout the day, for example; the Daily Mile, active breaks in lessons, active break times and lunch times, promotion of active travel using Active Streets Travel Tracker etc.
