Physical Education at Baines School will help students to develop the skills, knowledge and competence to live a healthy and active lifestyle at school and in the future. We aim to begin, support and continue a pathway into sport and exercise through an enthusing, inspiring curricula, extra-curricular and school community club links programme. Whether the student’s passion is in Invasion Games, Net- wall games, Striking and Fielding games, Athletics, Gymnastics or Dance, they can learn transferable, cognitive and social skills which they can apply in a variety of conditioned and competitive situations. This can help lead to improved physical, mental and social health whilst exposing young people to a future hobby, interest or career. We encourage our students to approach all physical activity with a positive attitude and an open mind. We guide students to independently develop their skillset and explore different ways to utilise these skills. We develop teamwork, co-operation, communication, creativity and leadership, and students learn to cope with physical and mental challenges through their Physical Education experiences at Baines School.

How and when is my child assessed?
