Please contact Mrs Harrison if you require any further information regarding the School Curriculum.

P.E aims to support pupils' Spiritual, moral, cultural, social development to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. It encourages children to become independent learners, sustain regular, lifelong physical activity within a competitive and recreational environment. Physical education contributes to each child's total growth and development. Its aim is for children to have the ability to perform and enjoy day-to-day physical activities with ease. Children also gain knowledge of movement, increase in co-ordination and an ability to develop and refine skills necessary to participate in a wide range of activities, such as football, netball, rugby and dance etc.

In general, P.E. lessons help and support children: develop skill and confidence, develop and maintain physical fitness, learn about personal health and wellness, and demonstrate positive social skills.

In P.E, children will study four areas of sport. These include: Gymnastics, Athletics, Games and Dance. Within P.E lessons, children will adopt many different roles such as a performer, coach, umpire and leader and also explore many different outdoor activities.
