PE Rationale

 

It is vital to ensure Camp Hill’s curriculum meets the purpose and aims of the National Curriculum. 

The coverage of the National Curriculum can be divided up into three main areas; which we have designated as follows;

 

1. Physically competent, physically active.

2. Tactics & strategies, decision maker, creative and competitive.
