Inspiring brighter futures

Physical Education

We believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment enables pupils to develop qualities of confidence, self-discipline and leadership. It provides opportunities for social interaction, self-expression and using initiative. It contributes to a pupil’s well-being and health and fitness. 

In offering a balance of individual and team, co-operative and competitive activities, we aim to cater for ALL pupil’s individual needs and abilities.

We also promote the understanding of the many benefits of exercise. P.E is based on progressive skills learning which combined with flexible and varied teaching styles, endeavour to provide appropriate, stimulating, enjoyable and challenging learning situations for ALL pupils.
