“Sport teaches you character, it teaches you to play by the rules, it teaches you to know what it feels like to win and lose – it teaches you about life.”Billie Jean King
At Sandford we aim to engage our pupils to live a healthy life and encourage them to challenge themselves to reach their full sporting potential. We believe that all children make the best progress in Physical Education when they have opportunities to succeed, recognise their own progress, experience a wide range of sports and make links with sporting professionals. Through our development of a rich Physical Education environment, children develop, refine and practise skills. This information explains how we approach teaching children Physical Education skills and knowledge. We hope it helps you understand the key ways in which we work as a school, and how you as parent can best support your child’s learning within these essential areas. We also hope that by reading this information you will understand how ambitious we are for your child, how we want to see them achieve in all areas during their time at Sandford, and how we want them to fully enjoy all of their learning.
