The PE Department is committed to promoting the health and well-being of its children and staff through physical activity.
The department strives to maximize opportunities for children, young people and all associated with the school to be physically active by promoting all avenues for activity. This includes the curriculum, environment and wider community.
The department’s main aim is to ensure that all aspects of physical activity in school are promoted for the health and well-being of children, staff and visitors.
All children receive a minimum of two hours of high quality PE instruction per week spread over their week. All children are offered additional activities through the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme as part of their curriculum.
We also work in partnership with Manchester City FC’s City in the Community Program. This involves weekly visits from trainers who engeg the children in football games and skills, whilst also delivering numeracy and literacy through football. We are also involved in a healthy eating program in which a sports dietician from Manchester City delivers practical healthy eating sessions with the children. Other benefits this program brings to the school are access to a sensory room at the Ethihad stadium, Termly football tournaments against similar schools and tickets to some Manchester City games.
