Physical Education



  • For all students to make progress physically, cognitively, socially and emotionally through high quality teaching and learning in order to reach their full potential. Supporting students to be healthy and happy, succeed in life and contribute to society.”

Physical Education at Campion School

We believe a high quality PE curriculum should be an integral part of the whole school curriculum and one that staff, pupils and parents understand and can contribute to. Through PE & Sport our students learn to develop the important qualities of achievement, character, excellence discipline, resilience, communication, team work, and ambition, leading to improved concentration and attitude.

Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills and competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities by providing a broad & balanced curriculum with opportunities for all to be enjoyed.

Our mission is to improve and increase the quality and quantity of high quality PE for pupils, to show how PE can enhance students’ attainment and achievement and to create pathways for them to continue to be active beyond school.

We are striving towards improving the delivery of the teaching & learning of PE in order to promote participation, progress and performance. ‘High quality PE and school sport produces young people with the skills, understanding, desire and commitment to continue to improve and achieve in a range of PE, sport and health-enhancing physical activities in line with their abilities’ (DCMS Learning through PE & Sport).

Our school also recognises the impact that the provision of a high quality PE and school sport curriculum has on the whole school and that it can lead to whole school improvements.
