We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

Our evidence base is shared with all staff in staff meetings. Pupil, staff and parent are asked to complete questionnaires on an annual basis.
