PhysEd3Sport is featured very highly at HJPS.  Children are taught two hours of high quality PE by Ms Skolnek weekly.  The National Curriculum for PE is taught and in Key Stage 1 children learn games, gymnastics and dance.  In Key Stage 2 the children learn games, gymnastics, dance, swimming, outdoor and adventurous activities and athletics.

Children at HJPS take part in various sporting matches and fixtures throughout the year. These are organised and run by Maccabi and the Watford and Hertsmere School Sports Partnership.  Trials for sports teams will take place and Ms Skolnek will notify the players in advance.

Depending on the time of year and demand, HJPS offer various sporting after school clubs.  These clubs include netball, football, karate, gymnastics/cheerleading, Israeli dancing, tennis/athletics and yoga.  Please click here to see all the clubs on offer for our pupils.
