Hindhayes Infant School


Physical Education

Intent - Developing PE at Hindhayes:

Most teachers at Hindhayes are trained to teach REAL GYM and many have had training in REAL PE and we use these schemes for the majority of PE lessons.   Physical Education is a valuable and essential part of the curriculum at Hindhayes.    It is concerned primarily with the development of gross motor skills, agility, balance, coordination and movement confidence.  PE provides opportunities to develop skills, knowledge and understanding through a wide range of physical activities.

Developing Cultural Capital

We offer a range of activities to develop cultural capital.  We use some PE fund to pay for a Tai Chi instructor who takes small groups of children regularly.  She a has also led staff meetings in order that Tai Chi can be led by teachers.  We have outdoor space that the children have plenty of access to.  Reception have free flow into the quad, offering level and slopes on which to play, encouraging a variety of movement , as well as bikes and balance bikes. The school grounds are used at play and lunch, supported by Outdoor Play and Learning.

All children in Reception and Year one attend Forest School every 2 weeks.
