Physical Education & the Sport Premium

Athletic Excellence 

We believe that PE and Sports are an integral part of every child's education and development. Building on the success of the London and Rio Olympic games, we aim to inspire the next generation by providing a wide range of sporting opportunities that cater for children of all abilities. We feel that all children should have access to quality PE provision, with the intention of increasing the amount of young people taking part in regular sporting activity throughout their lives.


 'Anything is possible; don't think limits.' (Usain Bolt)

We are incredibly proud to have been awarded the new platinum level School Games award. We are one of only 2 schools in Northamptonshire and 104 in the country to receive this brand new accolade. This is due to having held the gold version for 5 consecutive years and our continuing commitment to providing a wide range of competitive opportunities alongside promoting health and well-being, positive sporting values and skills development throughout school.  

Physical Education

Nicholas Hawksmoor were one of the first primary schools in the UK to to undertake whole school INSET training that is providing all children with a revolutionary new Physical Education programme.

"The 'real PE' programme has been developed to give ALL children the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve in PE, Sport and life. It places the learner at the heart of what we do with the ulitmate goal of children feeling valued, included, challenged and supported in their learning." - Create Development 

We believe that this is proving to be a sound investment of part of the government's Sport Premium funding and has allowed all teaching staff the opportunity to receive innovative training that is inclusive for all our children.


School Sports Clubs

We always work hard to provide a wide variety of free sports clubs for the children that take place at lunch times and after school. These would not be possible without the dedicated staff who give up their own time to provide these for the children. The clubs do change with seasons and are in line with many of the local sporting competitions that are held each year.

Over the course of this year we aim to provide the following:

Girl's and Boy's Football, Netball, Tag Rugby, Quicksticks Hockey, Sportshall Athletics, Cross Country, Track and Field, Cricket, Rounders, Tennis, Project Ability, Tri Golf, Arrows Archery, Multiskills and Gymnastics
