Physical Education & Extended Curriculum Sporting Opportunities
Encouraging physical activity is crucial in providing children with the knowledge needed to live a healthy, social and active life and here at Westfields Junior School, we ensure that children are exposed to a wide variety of sporting activities. Each class is allocated 2 hours of curriculum PE a week: 1 hour of indoor activity (gymnastics or dancing) as well as 1 hour of outdoor activity, which is determined by the sporting calendar. During this time, children are given the skills needed to develop agility and co-ordination, make and apply decisions that will not only affect them but also their team, evaluate and improve performance and most importantly an understanding of how to achieve a healthy and active lifestyle.
In addition to the statutory requirements pupils at Westfields Junior School have the opportunity to participate in a range of extended curriculum opportunities. Each term we hold a whole school sporting event where all of the children have fun, engage in physical activity and earn points for their teams!

As part of the North East Hants Sporting Partnership we also participate in a range of inter-school competitions and festivals. These range from netball, football and rounders to ultimate frisbee, tennis, rugby, hockey, tri-golf and cricket.
In addition to this we enter local leagues for netball and football.
Hart introduced the first District Sport competition in the Summer Term 2019. We entered a team and were triumphant as winners of the Key Stage Two Athletics (track & field) Competition.
We are very fortunate we are able to utilise the swimming pool at Yateley School. Our Year 5 pupils enjoy a term long swimming course led by qualified staff to fulfil the swimming requirements.
On a weekly basis we run a number of before and after school sporting clubs. These include: family running, netball, cricket, football, rugby, rounders, hockey, mindfulness, frisbee and cheerleading. We also host external provider clubs including: Judo, dodgeball, dance, family fitness and football.
