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.

“On Thursday 30th November Eight children from Hardwick went to the festival held at Orchard Fields School on Bretch Hill.  We played Dodge Ball.  We did Bowling and lots of dancing.  The boys won Dodge Ball.  We had lots of fun. From all the activities it was a draw.”

Multi Skills Festival

“Last Thursday Year 2 went to a Multi Skills Festival.  We had great fun and had to do lots of races.  My favourite race was the rugby race because we had to carry the rugby ball and pass it to our team mates.  Everyone worked as a team and tried their best.” 

Szymon Lyszcz – Year 2

Cross Country Finals

“On Monday 20th November seven children went to the cross-country finals at Sibford School.  They had to compete against other children from North Oxfordshire.  Filip did well – he came 7th!  We all had really great time.  Thank you to Mrs Mckenzie-Blyth and Mr Hagger for taking us.”

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.”
