We believe that Physical development is a defining factor in children’s journey to becoming active and capable learners. Coordination, spacial awareness and body control are key to independence in learning and through out broad PE provision we give children the chance to find the sports that best suit their interests.
We use a mix of high quality teaching and specialist coaching to deliver a broad range of sports throughout the year.
We promote the profile of Out of School sporting activities in our weekly celebration assemblies and through interschool competition encourage teamwork and sporting behaviour.
Determination and perseverance in sports gives children transferable skills for learning and helps them to develop their sense of identity.
