PE at Hobbayne
Here at Hobbayne we are passionate about giving our children the opportunity to take part, succeed and enjoy a variety of different sports and physical activities. Enjoying physical activity helps children to lead a happier and healthier life which they can then take with them as they grow into young adults. If we can develop this in early childhood research has shown a much greater likelihood of being physically active into adulthood, and we therefore aim to foster this love of physical activity during our students’ formative years. We aim to provide a range of extra-curricular sports and activity clubs that all pupils can access and enjoy.
The clubs currently on offer for the year 2018/19 academic year include:
- Girls Football
- Boys Football
- New Age Kurling
- Change For Life
We provide our pupils to take part in a number of intra-school sporting competitions, with the culmination of this in the form of our team sports- focused ‘multi-sports day’, alongside our summer traditional sports day.
We compete in a number of inter-school competitions including boys and girls Football, Quickticks Hockey, New Age Kurling, Change For Life festival, Boccia, Netball, Tennis, Tri-Golf, Athletics, Cricket, Cross-Country, Basketball, Multi-Skills festival.
We encourage our students to take on positions of responsibility within the area of sport and physical activity and we currently have 20 trained Playground Leaders, 12 students which form the School Sports Organising Committee, alongside our two Sports Ambassadors (Freddie in Platinum Class and Maia in Platinum Class).
We work collaboratively with the Willowtree School Sports Partnership Team, who provide many opportunities for staff to be trained in all areas of PE teaching, as well as providing many of the opportunities for inter-school competition.
Last year we were awarded the Gold Sainsbury’s School Games Kitemark which shows our commitment to school sport and physical activity.
We are very proud to have been awarded the Gold School Games Kitemark for two years running now. This validates all of the amazing PE opportunities that continue to be available to all of our children at Hobbayne.
