At Pleasant Street Primary School we believe that it of paramount importance that a child lives a healthy and active life. By educating children how not only to keep active but also how to eat a well balanced diet is key to setting a strong foundation for a healthy future lifestyle. We aim to do this by ensuring that all pupils:
- Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.
- Are physically active for sustained periods of time.
- Engage in competitive sports and activities.
- Lead healthy, active lives.
We ensure that all pupils are equipped with relevant life skills such as taking part in competitive sports and that they are able to swim a minimum of 25 metres by the end of year 6; ensuring that all children are secondary ready.
