Nurturing sporting talent; unlocking potential


Physical Education Statement of Intent

It is our intent for the Physical Education curriculum to deliver high-quality lessons that inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. We want to provide opportunities to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
