Our PE curriculum:

We use the Rising Stars PE Champions as our main scheme of work in PE. Champions is a Sports, Fitness and Health programme for Years 1 to 6. It is an holistic approach to teaching of PE, which improves fitness, develops skills and deepens knowledge of health and wellbeing. It was inspired by an approach at Ark Bentworth and Ark Conway schools. It has been developed and successfully implemented in school by specialist teachers and, as such, is a proven part of wider school improvement and an effective measure of individual children’s fitness and sport progress.

You can see below which topics are covered in each year group, and how this matches to the National Curriculum for PE (2014).

Swimming and water safety:

As per, the National Curriculum (2014), all schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2.

At Hardwick Green we provide a 2 week intensive swimming programme for year 5 children at a local swimming pool. We aim for all children leave us with the ability to:

  • 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)
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations


Clubs & Enrichment:

Simon Carson coaching provide a range of after school clubs for free for every year group - visit our clubs page here to see what is currently on here and book your child a place.


Stockton School Sports Partnership:

As a school, we endeavour to ensure that our children experience a range of sports, skills and competitive events. This is why we are part of the part of the Stockton School Sports Partnership. We work closely with local schools within the Partnership - http://northfieldssc.org/ssp - to create opportunities for children to develop their physical, social and emotional skills through experiencing high quality PE, competition and sports leadership. The Stockton Schools Sport Partnership supports schools to:

  • Engage their students in regular activity to kick start healthy & active lifestyles.
  • Increase the confidence, knowledge and skills of teachers and wider school staff in delivering PE & school sport.
  • Access a broader experience of a range of sports and activities for all pupils.
  • Encourage increased participation in competitive sport and helping young people to achieve their personal best.
  • Use sport as a tool for whole school improvement
