At Emmanuel School, we believe that 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. We also aim to increase enjoyment and participation in sport and physical activity for all pupils.
We believe that delivering a high- quality physical education curriculum, which can inspire pupils to succeed and excel in both non-competitive and competitive sport, provides opportunities for all pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. We believe that providing opportunities for pupils in sport and other activities, not only builds character, but embeds values such as fairness and respect.
We follow UNICEF’s principles of a Rights-Respecting School (RRS), based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), where each member of the school community has rights.
Along with the large variety of physical activity within the curriculum we also offer a range of after school clubs such as Netball, Football, Karate, Running, Cricket and Zumba.
