Physical Education

At Our Lady of Hartley Catholic Primary School, we understand the importance Physical Education (PE) plays in the curriculum and are dedicated to provide all children with opportunities to engage fully in PE, physical activity and school sport. We believe that PE should develop the whole child through their ‘head, hands and heart’. PE at Our Lady of Hartley enables children to become confident and creative decision makers; it allows children to develop their skill through knowledge and understanding; it develops their social and emotional well-being and instils values of sportsmanship, fairness and respect.


Every week, the children will have two, one-hour PE lessons and will be taught a range of sports such as Handball, Swimming, Netball, Golf and Tennis across their time at school. The children will also have opportunities to participate in class competitions and competitions against schools in the local area.

Jonny May took the time to write a very inspirational letter back to Spencer which you can read below!

DSG Handball Tournament March 2020

The children represented the school brilliantly in the Dartford School Games Handball Tournament on Wednesday 4th March. They came 6th and won the sportsmanship award for the day. They have been invited to Canterbury to play 'handball on the beach'. These courts were used by the British volleyball team during the run up to the 2012 Olympic Games. Well done!
