At Shinfield St. Mary's, P.E. plays a major role with regard to our health, well-being and personal development. Our in-depth curriculum and highly knowledgeable staff deliver high-quality lessons to inspire and challenge all of our pupils. Within our P.E. lessons, all pupils are inspired to succeed in skill-progression. All pupils are provided opportunities to become physically confident and embed our school values. 

As well as encouraging the children to be physically active, P.E. lessons also give the children opportunities to develop their communication skills, mindset and wellbeing, with regular exercise improving the area of the brain linked with learning and memory and helping to reduce anxiety. By encouraging the children to be active, we are supporting their emotional wellbeing and mental health. Pupils must understand how to take care of themselves both physically and mentally in order to be healthy and successful later in life.
