PE Curriculum

We are Athletes!

We want our children to love PE. We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are and grow up wanting to be sports scientists, sports reporters, professional athletes or Olympic Gold Medallists. 

The Holly Mount PE Curriculum is diverse and gives the children the opportunity to experience a range of sports. We will box with Mohammed Ali, run with Usain Bolt and jump with Jessica Ennis-Hill. We maximise the impact of our Sports Premium Funding through specialist teaching, high quality provision and the most fantastic experiences for our children… making memories and feeling proud.

 

Our PE curriculum promotes health and fitness and the importance of teamwork. It sparks the competitive and encourages determination. It is ambitious and empowers our children to become independent and resilient – like all our curriculum areas. We want to equip our children with not only the minimum statutory requirements of the PE National Curriculum but to utilise our unique environment, promote outdoor learning and embed character strengths. We make links with physical health and the positive effect it can have on mental health. Our new outdoor gym is used throughout the day and our children experience a wide range of sports with many opportunities to proudly wear the Holly Mount kit.
