Physical Education (PE)
We value the importance of developing and enhancing the children’s fundamental skills in varied inclusive activities, whilst also providing opportunities in traditional competitive sports. Our child-centered approach is instrumental to how we teach PE; to engage, support and challenge EVERY child. We encourage leadership and independence, which allows all abilities to participate at their own level. As a result the children receive two different weekly sessions of physical activity. One to learn the skills through sport and invasion games. The second is a dedicated session to developing fundamental physical and cognitive skills (REAL PE).
A successful learner at our schools will -
- Be confident participating in a range of physical activities whether as an individual or part of a team;
