Physical Education (PE) is an essential part of all children's social and physical development. As a school, we are committed to providing all the children with the opportunity to discover and develop their individual level of physical ability. Through gym and dance, we will create an exploratory environment where the children’s control and co-ordination will be progressed. Through the delivery of the curriculum, we hope to develop positive attitudes to physical activity and encourage the children to adopt an active and healthy lifestyle. The school will further offer opportunity for social and emotional development by structuring activities where the children can plan and lead activities, work with others and make judgements about their own and others' performances and actions.
