Physical education motivates, prepares and inspires lifelong participation in regular physical activity including informal, recreational and competitive sporting activities. Prior Weston Physical Education is an innovative and forward thinking that aims to empower every student and encourage lifelong participation in physical activity through personalized learning.
Our inclusive curriculum meets the needs of our diverse community and creates a rich, stimulating learning environment, in which every individual is able to develop their distinctive talents and individual aspirations to achieve their full potential as a lifelong learner. We strive for students to achieve excellence.

KS1 cover the following sports in their curriculum Multi Skills, Bat and Ball Skills, Mini Athletics, Mini Tennis, Dance and Gymnastics.

We believe active lifestyles enable young people to develop healthy and fit habits that will stay with them forever. The school provides opportunities to try out a variety of activities after-school, which broadens and extends the activities on offer in the curriculum. We recognise the educational value of appropriate competitive school sport and the part it plays in the personal development of all young people. It has the capacity to develop sporting behaviour, raise self-esteem and encourage social inclusion. Competitive sport can prepare young people for the competitive challenges they will face in life.
