Physical Education

At Grove House we recognise that physical activity and sport are essential parts of a child’s everyday life and are a key factor in their future well-being. We want every child to find enjoyment in physical activity and aim to provide them with a wide range of opportunities so that they can discover the right kind of activity for themselves and experience the benefits that an active lifestyle can provide. We aim to present them with opportunities to compete against themselves and others, work in partnerships and teams, build self-confidence and perseverance and the real sense of achievement that this particular aspect of a child’s education can provide. A key part of this will be to engage their enthusiasm and provide them with the necessary skills and experiences in order for them to be in the best position possible to further engage in physical activity and sporting opportunities as their educational and life journey continues beyond this establishment. Our aim is to prepare and support pupils towards healthy and active lifestyle choices for their future mental and physical well-being. We understand that PE is more than physical, it also focuses on the social and cognitive side of a child’s development. We focus on developing a child’s physical literacy. 

The aims of Physical Education (PE) at our school are that all children:

  • adopt an active lifestyle and understand the benefits it provides
  • develop a range of sporting skills across the national curriculum, including swimming
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in a range of competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives
  • understand the importance and effect of exercise and being healthy
  • develop a sense of fair play and a sporting attitude
  • enjoy sporting activities and have fun, developing resilience and perseverance



Our P.E lessons are taught with the support of coaches from Kanga sports. Click the link below to find out more:

At Grove House we also run a range of extra curricular sporting clubs and take part in inter school competitions. We love to stay active by also taking part in the daily mile!
