Physical education develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with
increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These include dance, games, gymnastics,
swimming and water safety, athletics and outdoor adventure activities. Physical education promotes an
understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and
promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. Thus, we enable them to make informed choices about
physical activity throughout.
We aim to:
- Develop confidence, skills and knowledge.
- Develop physical literacy
- Provide new quality sporting opportunities
- Be proud of achievements.
- Promote fair play and respect.
- Encourage children to live healthy, active lifestyles.
- Engage in competitive sports and activities
