Curriculum Intent

The Physical Education Department intend to enable all pupils to have an outstanding experience of PE throughout their time at the school and therefore achieve their true potential.

We follow the national curriculum guidelines and intent, to ensure all pupils experience a range of sports and be challenged not only to improve practical abilities, but be encouraged to develop personal, social and decision-making skills.

At Cardinal Newman Catholic School, we strive to inclusively make young people healthier, encourage them to develop their self-discipline and teamwork skills, develop their leadership potential and introduce them to activities they may enjoy and derive health benefits from for a lifetime. This will then ultimately enrich their quality of life. We therefore do not merely concentrate on what we teach but also how we teach, in order that children may learn.
