PE Curriculum at Hill View Primary Academy 


Physical Education is a programme of activities that aims to provide your child with learning experiences that enable them to develop the knowledge, motivation and ability to lead a physically active life.

PE improves motor skills and increases muscle strength and bone density. Pupils with a positive early experience of the subject will often seek to engage in exercise out of school hours too. By making physical activity a regular part of the school week, this can be ingrained in a child as they grow up.

Principles, intent and purpose

At Hill View, we aim to ensure that every child has the opportunity to enjoy high quality teaching of physical activity while also facilitating pathways that encourage pupils to continue to be active beyond school hours.

Entitlement and enrichment

Pupils at Hill View benefit from a wide range of clubs and events. This year, free extra multi-sport clubs have begun with pupils from years 1-6 being able to attend at lunch-times or after school. This has been a great way to ensure our children have the opportunity to increase the number of hours a week they devote to physical activity.

Swimming lessons are an important part of our curriculum offer, with year 4 children initially having the chance to attend and catch-up programmes available during years 5 and 6.

The school aims to attend a variety sporting competitions which have included football, tag-rugby and netball during recent years.

During year 6, pupils have the opportunity to apply to be a sporting ambassador, allowing them to attend training aimed at developing young leaders with a passion for the subject. It is always good to see these ambassadors take responsibility for coaching younger year groups and promoting physical activity.

Hill View academy is committed to improving the offer of training opportunities for staff by using specialist teachers to assist with planning and implementing lessons.

The school aims to introduce pupils to new sports, encouraging fitness and high levels of participation.
