Whitemoor Academy

Physical Education and Sport at Whitemoor 

PE and sport develops our children’s knowledge, understanding and skills, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These areas of the curriculum promote an understanding in children of their bodies in action – involving thinking, selecting and applying skills. Additionally, they promote positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle, enabling children to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.
