Why Learn PE?

A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It will provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

PE is taught as a discrete subject from Year R. We provide additional teaching resources form Year 3 transitionaing into specialist PE provision using our full facilities from Year 4.
