“Intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong.” John F. Kennedy
A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sports and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sports and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
At Millbrook, we strive to encourage children of all abilities, backgrounds and dispositions to be physically active through sports they play and learn and in and out of the classroom.
Children are being given more and more opportunities to learn new skills, play different sports and represent Millbrook in many competitions and sports festivals. They also have the opportunity of swimming lessons on-site with a qualified swimming coach.
All of these opportunities will enable children to stay healthy, discover new talents and have fun. It has been proven that learning through physical activity can have a positive effect on memory and concentration therefore we are encouraging physical activity across the curriculum.
