  • To experience a variety of roles within physical education and school sport including participant, coach and official in order to ensure every pupil reaches their full potential.
  • To develop and know a variety of skills, techniques and tactics and how to use them in a variety of competitive sporting activities.
  • To use physical education and school sport as a tool to promote lifelong participation and learning through a range of activities and sports, whilst having a positive impact on physical, mental and social well-being.
  • To create an inclusive environment that makes physical education accessible, enjoyable and challenging for all pupils within the curriculum, with a look to develop transferable life skills such as resilience, respect and communication.
  • To provide a range of extra-curricular activities for all pupils to participate in, both socially and competitively.

From seeing the head teacher playing football with the children on the yard, to staff sitting with pupils at lunchtime, everyone works together and there’s a strong feeling of belonging to part of something bigger than just a school”
