“Exercise activates the brain and gives you energy for everything else, the energy to be enthusiastic about your work. So, all your school work will gain from Physical Education.”

Darcey Bussell, The Royal Ballet.

 

Physical Education is allowing all children to achieve enjoyment, satisfaction and success at their own level and to develop:

  • Control, co-ordination and mobility
  • Skill and confidence in a range of physical activities
  • An awareness of the physical capabilities of the body
  • Co-operative skill

P.E. at Eaton Square School ensures that all children are active and centres on children finding enjoyment in physical activity, while promoting a healthy lifestyle and good posture. Children are taught to develop a positive attitude in sport, where they learn fair play and sporting behaviour, and to learn to cope with both success and failure.

At Eaton Square School, every child has at least two hours of P.E. a week. Pupils use the Halls at No. 28/30 and No. 79 and outside facilities include Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park, Kennington, Battersea Park, and Queen Mother Sports Centre.
