Physical Education

COLLEGE VISION

In PE we want to inspire young people to participate in and enjoy physical activity, and to recognise the importance of an active and healthy lifestyle which continues into adulthood.

We want to instil this through effective teaching and learning that is constantly looking to move forward, providing opportunities for pupils to assume responsibility for their learning, to engage inquisitive minds and provide learners with a high standard of learning that should be expected by them in every lesson.

At The Deepings School we want to make Physical Education a subject that motivates and excites pupils of all ages and abilities. We are striving to be an ever developing department with a passion for allowing pupils to develop and learn, and to give them moments of inspiration and enjoyment that will remain with them beyond their time at the school.
