Physical Education Curriculum Overview 2018-2019

 We provide a broad and balanced programme of activities that, through high quality teaching, actively engages, challenges, motivates and continually develops all its students.

We encourage all pupils to enjoy, succeed and excel in PE and we provide the opportunity for all our pupils to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness.
