We pride ourselves in giving children the opportunity to participate in as many sporting events and festivals as we can at Hart Community Primary School. Have a look below at some of our achievements and pictures of us participating in lots of different sporting events.
PE Vision Statement
We are very lucky in school to have a new sports coach, Mr Gibson. We used some of our Sports Premium fund in order to extend our PE provision. Mr Gibson works closely with the teachers to support in lessons and takes our children to sporting events and festivals. He also helps run afterschool clubs so that we can have a wider range of after school sports in school.
We have a School Sports Organising Crew (SSOC) that work with our Sports Coach to organise and deliver games to the Y3/4 and Y5/6 classes. The children choose the games they want to lead at the start of the week and then deliver them with the support of Mr Gibson. This helps our children towards achieving their 30 minutes of exercise a day.
We would like to congratulate our new JAPP cohort who will be joining our current JAPP children at Elwick. We look forward to seeing their achievements!
After School Clubs
We have a range of after school sports clubs that are available to our pupils including; netball, football and karate. More information can be found on our After School Clubs page.
