We want to inspire students to participate in and enjoy physical activity, as well as recognise the importance of an active and healthy lifestyle. We provide this through our differentiated and effective teaching which promotes progress, provides competitive opportunities, engages enthusiasm for games and sport and develops skills essential to a wide range of sports and disciplines. Our desire is to ensure that sporting and fitness opportunities are varied and offer an enriching experience for children and young people attending our school.


PE is an important part of the overall school development plan (School Development Plan Paragraph 4.2.2) since it contributes to a flexible curriculum which offers a broad range of learning experiences and engages our students. We recognise the that physical education supports children’s learning across the curriculum, contributes to healthy and active lifestyles, improves emotional well-being, has a positive effect on behaviour and develops key skills such as leadership, confidence and team building. It is our aim to ensure the positive values of sport are intertwined with the school ethos, and help young people to engage with their wider community.

Through our core aims and values we will:

  • Encourage enjoyment of PE through a range of physical activities
  • Ensure maximum participation in all lessons
  • Support pupils to take responsibility for their own learning, enabling them to inspire and challenge others
  • Enable pupils to engage in enjoyable and challenging learning experiences
  • Provide a variety of sporting opportunities as part of our curriculum and promotion of resilience and all round progress
  • Foster and nurture each child or young person’s talent and potential
  • Promote awareness of physical development including fitness, skills and hygiene
  • Celebrate the achievements of those who have excelled in a sport or discipline, displayed their sporting efforts effectively or shown acts of good sportsmanship

Sports Premium funding is issued to the school in order to achieve the following:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Broaden experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport
