Physical Education


By the time a child leaves Colney Heath, our Physical Education curriculum has contributed to the development of the whole child by giving pupils opportunities to develop their skills and knowledge in a broad range of physical activities. Our school grounds offer a wide range of outdoor space, with access to equipment selected to encourage physical activity during break and curricular time. Children at our school are physically active and engaged in competitive sports and activities. Extra-curricular clubs offer all children the opportunity of extended sport with their friends, and to experience the excitement of inter-school competition in football, netball and athletics. Our children are set to lead healthy, active lives in our local environment, where they are familiar with sport and activity provision through our local Sports Partnership network.
