Our Physical Activity Vision Statement:
Our aim at St. Luke’s School is to raise the excellence and enjoyment of Physical activities throughout the whole school through high quality teaching and learning via a range of strategies. We see physical development as a key factor in improving every child’s emotional wellbeing by developing independence, respect, team work, resilience, persistence and creativity through sporting opportunities. We aim to provide inspiring and instructive lessons during the school day, activities that are fun and stimulating during break times as well as competitive opportunities for children who thrive in challenging situations, in order to motivate all children to pursue a healthy and active lifestyle.
