It is our intention that all children are active for at least 30 minutes of their school day. We intend, when teaching the PE curriculum, to develop the enjoyment of physical activity and strive to improve the importance of health and wellbeing. We strive to give children the opportunities to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding and apply these in competitive games.
We are proud to report what we achieved the School Games GOLD Mark Award for the 2021/2022 academic year. The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward and recognise school's engagement (provision and uptake) in the School Games against a national benchmark and to celebrate keeping young people active, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
