Subject intent:

At William Cassidi CE Primary, we intend that all children enjoy Physical Education.  Through Physical Education we will develop the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities co-cooperatively and competitively.  We aim to improve health and well-being, promote sustained active participation and lifelong learning and for each child to fulfil their potential.
