Our vision for PE

Achieving excellence and enjoyment through high quality, inclusive practice where all pupils are motivated and inspired to achieve lifelong participation through a healthy and active lifestyle.

PE Kit at Hardwick

It is important that your child has the correct and appropriate kit for PE. Below are 2 images. On the left is what they should be wearing for inside PE – Hardwick PE polo t-shirt and black shorts. On the right is what is recommended for outside PE in colder conditions – tracksuit bottoms and a top with sensible trainers.



In PE we work alongside the North Oxfordshire School Sport Partnership. They provide festivals and competitions for all age groups. On their website is a list of the upcoming festivals for our school.

Multi Skills and Young Leaders

“On Thursday 22nd March 2018 eight children from Year 5 went to BGN because they were chosen to be Young Leaders for the Year 1 Multi Skills Festival.  At BGN we were asked to pick partners to work with.  We were then allocated to the different games including rugby relay; target throwing; obstacle race and dribbling.  In total there were four other schools.  All the Year 1 children really enjoyed it.” 

Eva Kwasniak and Alex Kelly – Year 5

Sport Relief

“As you are aware for Sports Relief we did a wide range of activities.  The whole school joined in including running a mile each day, and fitness circuits. We asked for a donation of 50p.  The money will go to help others less fortunate than ourselves. We raised £73.30. Thank you for your kind donations.”

“On the 28th March, we travelled by taxi to a Gymnastics Competition.  When we got there, we had to warm up because we did not want to injure ourselves. We practised the floor routine on some mats.  We were then ready to perform our routine in front of the judge.  We then had a rest before moving to the vault.  We had one practice and two real performances. Out of all the schools we came 2nd!  We will be going to the finals in the next round competing against Hill View.

Hockey Festival

“On Thursday 1st March some lucky Year 5 children went to BGN for a hockey festival.  We were up against many other schools, such as Orchard Fields.  We came 2nd and we didn’t loose a game!  Lily and Charlie received a determination award because they stood out in the team. What a great day we had!”

Cross Country

“On Thursday 28th September, Years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 took part in the Cross-Country competition in Banbury Academy.  We went with Miss Wood, Miss Simpson, Miss Brain and Laura Wearing on a coach.  When we got there, we warmed up.  Then, Year 2 set off to race.  Throughout the day, Hardwick achieved top ten in every race and everyone tried their best.  Across the school we won seven top ten positions including:  Blanka, Joshua, Filip, Aaron, Maya, and Zak.  Although we didn’t win the competition overall, we did very well.  Well done to everyone who participated in this event and thank you to the adults for coming with us.”
