John Henry Newman Physical Education Department

We nurture student’s physical literacy. Physical Education (PE) is an essential part of a child’s holistic education and we have a duty to help them be ‘world ready’. We believe that through an engaging curriculum that is broad and balanced our students will cultivate a passion for lifelong learning and enjoyment of PE. Where they constantly strive to improve.

We believe PE is more than just being 'good' at sport; It creates opportunities for students to develop their ‘Head, Hands and Heart’. Students should possess communication, leadership and social skills. These are built from a foundation of core knowledge of skills and tactics. They should acquire confidence and a positive attitude towards the subject and their peers. Skills and attitudes that will support them in their next stage of learning or employment and for a lifelong participation in sport/physical activity.
