Physical Education and Sport

At Harris Primary Academy Orpington we believe that Physical Education will make a very important contribution to a child’s development by fostering positive attitudes towards sharing, co-operation and competition.

We aim to develop pupil’s self confidence and self-esteem through a wide variety of experiences both in curriculum time and competition in and out of school.

In both Key Stage 1 and 2 children are taught Gymnastics, Dance, Athletics, Invasion games (multi-sports at KS1) and Swimming. These form the core activities of the PE Curriculum.

We extra-curricular sporting activities across both key stages, dependent upon the time of year, including Football, Rugby, Cross-Country, Boxing, Multi Sports, Dance and Athletics.

The school competes in many borough competitions as well as federation competitions. We have many fantastic teams as well as sporting talent across the Academy.

This year we aim to use the Sports Grant to improve access to high quality PE and Sports by providing professional development to our staff, by helping our gifted and talented students in PE as well as setting up more sports clubs.

All physical education experiences are intended to meet all abilities and offer stimulating and challenging learning. We also aim to promote the values of exercise & enthusiasm for physical activities and to promote a lifelong interest in physical education as a whole.

Swimming

The statutory requirement is that pupils receive a term of swimming lessons during their time at primary school.  At Harris Primary Academy Orpington, we provide two terms of swimming tuition, which take place in Year 3 and Year 5. 

76% of our current Year 6 pupils (45 out of 59 pupils) are able to swim 25 metres using a variety of strokes (data correct as at September 2018).
