A high-quality Physical Education curriculum provides the foundations for understanding the capabilities of the human body through a varied activity content founded upon the gospel values of mutual respect. We believe in giving all pupils the opportunity to discover and develop their physical potential through a balanced and developmental programme of activities. We do so in the belief that physical education in a safe, supportive and challenging environment is a vital component in the development of all pupils' physical and emotional health and well-being. We hope to encourage enjoyment, tolerance, co-operation and the development of expertise through our PE curriculum.
We strive to achieve the following for our pupils:
- Enable all pupils to experience and enjoy a wide range of sporting activities.
- To develop a love of PE and Sport regardless of previous experiences.
- Promote the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle and highlight the benefits of physical activity on the body
- Provide extra-curricular opportunities for pupils to pursue their interests in sport and physical activity
- Develop pupil's spiritual, moral, social and cultural experiences through intra and inter school sport competitions
- Allow pupils to gain coaching and leadership experience when working with young children through PE and school sport
- Enable pupils to work independently and as part of a team in variety of activities
- To continue to develop community club links including links to clubs suitable for development of our high achieving national hopefuls
- allow all pupils to have equal access to PE and school sport, irrespective of their ethnic origin, religion, sexuality or academic ability through varied teaching methods and resources
