Physical activity not only improves health, reduces stress and improves concentration, but also promotes correct physical growth and development. Exercise has a positive influence on academic achievement, emotional stability and interaction with others. Therefore, both teachers and children should be aware of its importance.
At Dollis, PE develops children's knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities.
We provide the broad and balanced programme of physical education we believe every child should have; with activities designed to be enjoyable, vigorous, purposeful and regular. Through providing positive experiences, a lifelong interest in physical activity is encouraged, as well as promoting positive attitudes towards a healthy and active lifestyle.
The range of physical activities at Dollis is wide and includes sports, athletics, dance, games, cycling, gymnastics, swimming and outdoor education. We ensure that the National Curriculum is followed by using the Non-Stop Action Scheme.
PE is taught both by class teachers and professional sports coaches.
