Physical Education is an essential part of the curriculum giving our pupils the opportunity to develop many, if not all, of the Personal Best concepts and values.
Alongside physical health and skills we recognise the importance of mental health and wellbeing. Therefore, by encouraging a high level of participation in all aspects of PE we are providing our pupils with essential tools and mindset to manage and cope with difficulties in their everyday life.
By providing a rich and broad range of activities we develop the enjoyment of physical activity with the aim that all pupils will find a sport or activity that engages them and encourages a lifelong interest in physical activity or sport. Before leaving our school we aim for every child to have been given the opportunity to compete in a sport and represent the school, to have experienced a wide range of activity and sports and to be able to swim at least 25 metres.
PE supports our 'My Personal Best' values. Whilst providing a better understanding of how to lead an active, healthy lifestyle, pupils also gain skills such as co-operation, leadership, collaboration and most vitally resilience, which can be applied within other areas within school life and beyond their time in our school.
