Our departmental approach to the curriculum
A high-quality experience of Physical Education and Sport can provide children with life-changing benefits to their well-being and give them a brighter future. We therefore believe in offering a Physical Education curriculum that gives every one of our students the best possible opportunities to make a positive impact on their physical, mental and social development. We achieve this through a comprehensively broad, balanced and inclusive experience that equips students with the knowledge, skills and confidence to shape their own physically active behaviors for the rest of their lives.
