Welcome to Hadlow's PE


PE Curriculum

Hadlow Primary School will provide a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. The school will provide opportunities for all pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. We will provide all children with opportunities to compete in sport and take part in other activities that build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

At Hadlow Primary School, we implement a fundamental movement skills based curriculum. Fundamental movement skills are movement patterns that involve different body parts, such as the legs, arms and head. This enables the following skills to be performed:

  • Running
  • Hopping
  • Catching
  • Throwing
  • Striking
  • Balancing
  • Jumping

They are the foundation movements for children to develop, allowing them to participate in sporting activities. For example, football, gymnastics, rugby and netball.


The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.
  • Are physically active for sustained periods of time.
  • Engage in competitive sports and activities.
  • Lead healthy, active lives.

Attainment Targets

By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.

Subject Content

Key Stage 1

Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Pupils should be taught to:

  • master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
  • perform dances using simple movement patterns

Key Stage 2

Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

Pupils should be taught to:

  • use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
  • play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
  • develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
  • perform dances using a range of movement patterns
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best


Pupils will be taught to:

  • Tread water, swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively (for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke)





Hadlow Primary School have been apart of the Sainsbury's Awards for many years. This year we have been given a Gold award for our PE throughout the school and taking part in various events.


Looking over the past year Hadlow have taken part in various events. Celebration Dance was a new event. We took two groups along, one from the Dance club and other was the Cheerleading group.

They chose music from different countries to dance to and celebrate.  We as a school were so proud of both groups. For some of the pupils this was they first time they had ever be involved in dance on a stage. They were truly amazing!


The Colour Dash was an exciting events for 4 year groups to be involved in. We attended the event over at Dunorlan Tunbridge Wells, the lower years ran half way around the lake, Middle ran the full way round and the upper years ran twice around. They all ran so well, what an achievement. 


Sports Day -  Sports Day was a great school event for the whole school.  Every child took part even if not in every event. They played important roles giving out stickers, finish line, introducing field events. Thank you for all the parents support on the day too. 


Competitions- Many children took part in various competitions after school against other schools. What a joy to see them take part, enjoy and grow in confidence. Dodgeball was a particular favourite of mine, the pupils thoroughly enjoyed every game against the other schools.


Unfortunately, we didn't take part in as many football and netball games as in previous year, but those we did all pupils tried their best.  The netball team were chuffed that they beat another school, which made their day! We look forward to playing matches next year.


Bikeabilty was a great success. All the children that took part did extremely well and achieved their certificates.


We are very proud as a school to provide a variety of after school clubs.

Next year we have a few more:

Running Club


KS1 Active club

Tiny Team

Dance KS1- Performing Club


KS1 Football


Football Girls/Boys

Dance KS2- performing arts




Hadlow Primary School  provided swimming lessons for Year 6 in terms 2 & 3.  Year 5 in terms 4 & 5. These lessons were held at Larkfield Sports Centre. The year groups made amazing progress within their 2 terms of swimming and gained so much confidence in the water.

Year 6 73% were able to swim 25 metres or more.
