At Grace Academy we aim to offer a high-quality physical education curriculum which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. We offer a broad range of activities, both team and individual, that will teach students, not only key skills and concepts for a particular sport, but also to develop personal qualities such as teams work, confidence and leadership.  The curriculum is specifically tailored so that your child has all of the tools they need to be successful within both practical and theoretical contexts. The curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • Are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • Engage in competitive sports and activities
  • Provide opportunities for students to develop an understanding of why people get involved in physical activity, and the long-term health benefits of a sustained active lifestyle
  • Lead healthy, active lives
