PE

Welcome to PE at Newman Catholic School

At Newman Catholic School we offer a high quality physical education curriculum which we hope will inspire all students to take part in regular physical activity and have opportunities to excel in competitive sport. We would like all students to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness; whilst benefiting from personal, social and emotional development. If you have any queries regarding PE or school sport, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
