Games & PE

We deliver a high-quality physical education and games curriculum which inspires all pupils to enjoy and participate in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities.

In the Early Years, children are taught to be active and to develop their coordination, control, and movement. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports a healthy and active lifestyle. Within their P.E. lessons, the children are given the opportunity to work as individuals, in a group or as part of a team. Pupils develop core movement, become increasingly competent and confident, and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and co-ordination. As the children progress, we aim to give them opportunities to compete in sport and other activities in order to build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

Aims of the Sports department
