Physical Education Curriculum Vision

At All Saints we believe that it is important for all students to understand what a healthy and active lifestyle is and all the benefits that this can bring.

All students at All Saints have the opportunity to take part in Core Physical Education, encouraging students to develop their physical skills, increase their ability to work in teams and to simply enjoy the fun that comes with playing sports.
