Physical Education

Vision and Rational

We provide a high-quality physical education curriculum which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel. Children are encouraged to participate in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. Our curriculum develops children's knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities as well as promoting positive attitudes towards a healthy and active lifestyle. Children participate in a wide variety of sport including gymnastics, dance, swimming and outdoor education which helps build character and embed values such as fairness and respect.

Physical activity not only improves health, reduces stress and improves concentration, but also promotes correct physical growth and development. Children enhance their knowledge more widely as they take part in the school journey: a week away from home developing team building skills, rock climbing, raft making, orienteering and more.  Their visit to PGL is the highlight of Year 6.
