Our high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in sport and other physically demanding activities. It teaches core skills and builds on these, allowing children to apply their knowledge in competitive sport both in and out of school and evaluate their performance. We provide many opportunities over the course of an extended school day for pupils to be physical in a way that supports their health and fitness and helps to embed values such as fairness and respect.
An active lifestyle is also promoted through our travel plan, as evidenced through our acquirement of a TfL STARS gold award. We use work with specialised coaches across all year groups to develop and engage pupils. These, as well as attendance on PE courses and staff INSETs, support the professional development and skills of teachers.
The impact of PE is seen through pupil interviews, teacher/coach evaluations, data regarding active travel to and from school, attendance at clubs and from performance in competitions. The impact is also evident through gaining the School Games Gold Award from the two previous academic years.
