All pupils to leave primary school physically literate

with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary

to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and

lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

We aim to do this by..

  • Developing a broader range of sports and activities offered to pupils.
  • Improving partnership work on physical education with other schools and other local partners, including increasing confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
  • Extending and developing further opportunities for inter class and across school sport competitions.
  • Targeting groups of pupils to help improve their physical development and kick start a healthy active lifestyle.
  • Driving school improvement through raising the profile of school sports values within whole school values.
