Physical Education

PE Vision

At Parkhill Junior School, we strive for every child not matter what their ability, is able to be confident, enjoy and have the opportunity to participate in a range of sports actively with the increasing competitive aspects by the end of Parkhill Junior School. Physical Education is a vital part of a child’s wellbeing for their physical and mental development. Therefore through a supportive, holistic approach, nurturing advanced cognitive approaches and incorporating the core values, attributes and attitudes throughout their learning will empower every child to reach their full potential across the Physical Education irrespective of their needs.

Healthy Opportunities

We have a wide range of opportunities for children to stay active here at Parkhill Junior School. At lunchtimes, they have a variety of energetic activities to choose from including: tennis, basketball, table tennis, cricket, badminton, football, a climbing frame and an outdoor gym. At the start of this term we also sent out a fitness letter that explains what we do at Parkhill to promote a healthy and active environment (Please attach the fitness letter onto this).
