PE is a vital part of school life and ultimately a child’s future well-being. It is therefore our intent to provide an inclusive, broad and balanced PE curriculum that ensures all children will benefit, whether through improving their confidence in existing skills, learning new skills or being introduced to new sports, clubs, teams and organisations.
It is our intent to ensure children understand the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and to equip them with the tools to do so through health and well-being education. Children must understand how to take care of themselves both physically and mentally in order to be successful as adults.
Beyond merely a subject, we believe that participation in sporting activity is a key element of developing a school in which pupils are proud of the community in which they belong. Therefore, great emphasis is placed upon additional sporting opportunities beyond the lesson within after-school clubs, inter-house and inter-school competition and festivals. We believe this links directly with our school values and is another way in which we can positively engage with our local community and be active citizens within it.
