What does PE and Sports mean at Acre Heads?

We believe that active, healthy learners will have positive attitudes towards themselves and their learning. Participation in high quality physical education develops confidence and self-esteem.

PE has a central part to play in the learning and development of all our children and is a high profile part of our curriculum, contributing to health, wellbeing and self-esteem of our school community.

We believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all. Encouraging collaboration and partnership is important to us to make the best use of resources and enhance PE and sport provision in order to raise participation and achievement for all children. PE and sport is taught both by school staff and external providers.
