The junior school programme is inclusive, and our aim is to ensure that physical education, sport, and physical activity should be an integral part of every pupil’s school experience and weekly routine. We want all our pupils to have access to a wide variety of sports in the hope that they find a sport or activity that they are passionate about and enjoy taking part in, and will continue to do so throughout their time at school.
We want our pupils to be active and engaged in weekly physical activity, to enjoy participating in physical education, sport & physical activity. We also want all of our pupils to have a sense of achievement from their involvement in curriculum lessons and extra-curricular activities and understand the benefits of being physically active on their well-being and physical, social, and moral development.
