PE and Sport Premium
At Hyde we provide a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all of our pupils to participate and succeed in all physical activity. We provide opportunities for our pupils to become physically literate and confident in a way which supports their health and fitness as they move towards making their own choices as young adults.
We are determined to give our children the opportunity to experience and enjoy a wide range of sports through our curriculum, clubs and competitions. These opportunities build character and help to embed values such as teamwork, fairness and respect.
All children participate in two hours of quality physical education each week. In these lessons they develop agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning, alongside knowledge of playing different games.
We belong to the Burgate and the New Forest Sports Partnerships, which enable us to regularly participate in competitions with other local and Hampshire schools in both team sports such as rugby, football, cricket and netball, and individual sports, such as tennis and cross-country. Year 6 Sports Ambassadors lead sports clubs for children across the school to enhance the provision of physical activity across the school.
We are extremely fortunate in having only a short ride away, the use of the village hall for gymnastics and indoor games and the local pool for swimming lessons. A particular advantage for our children is the spacious common opposite the school. Here, our large and frequently updated supply of break time equipment allows for the development of imagination, creativity and skill as pupils design their own games. This large and extensive space is also ideal for all outdoor sport.
The Government is providing funding to help provide quality primary PE and school sport. At Hyde we have given careful consideration to how this money should be spent to ensure we are improving the quality of the sport and PE that we are already offering to the children. We are convinced that investing this money in quality training for staff is essential as well as trying to widen participation and improve our resources.
