Physical Education (P.E.)

We teach the children about fitness and health by building on their natural enthusiasm for movement.

We use our fantastic grounds and physical resources to help the children explore and learn about their world, and we teach skills in physical development that enable them to work and play with other pupils in pairs and small groups.

By watching, listening and experimenting, they develop their skills in movement and coordination, and enjoy expressing and testing themselves in a variety of situations.

We make the most of our Sports Funding to access quality training for staff and to enhance the PE curriculum with sports trips and clubs. We use visitors to encourage the spark of a life-long love of sport and fitness.
