Why do we learn physical education?
At Atwood, our aim is that every pupil will leave our school healthy.We look to achieve by bringing together sport, health and fitness so that children understand about keeping healthy, learn how to look after themselves and learn new sports skills.
We take a holistic approach to physical education teaching along three strands: Sports, Health and Fitness. We have developed an exciting curriculum engaging children in a wide variety of regular physical activities, as well as giving children the knowledge and information they need to make healthy choices to live well balanced lives.
