Physical education

For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.


1 Timothy 4:8

New International Version


At Northaw, we believe God intelligently designed us to be active. We have customised a scheme of work based on the curriculum from Get Set 4 PE. Teachers know that physical education is not synonymous with physical activity or sport, they share similarities but also have important differences. All pupils feel included and able to succeed within the subject. We aim to complete The Daily Mile and celebrate sport during Be Active Week. We join in with both the Hertford and Ware School Sports Partnership, and School Games. We also host a range of extracurricular physical activities and sports. Ofsted’s research review series and subject report series, and non-statutory guidance, Enhancing physical education provision and improving access to sport and physical activity in school (March 2024), have informed our practice in this area.

Adaptation for Inclusion


We want pupils with SEND to achieve exceptionally well in PE, and have constructed a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all pupils, particularly disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. The curriculum is successfully adapted to meet the needs of pupils with SEND, developing their knowledge, skills and abilities to apply what they know and can do with increasing fluency and independence.

Teachers can also refer to our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Guidance where classroom difficulties and strategies to support are listed by area of need.
