At West Acton we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical development and wellbeing.
Taking part in PE and School Sport has significant benefits for all our students. It helps our students to become more active and healthy, and can play a vital role in developing young people’s confidence and self-esteem, help to develop team work and wider social and personal skills.
At West Acton we are working with the very supportive Featherstone Sports Partnership to ensure our PE programme maximises opportunities for all our students to access high-quality PE and school sport. All of our students take part in a varied curriculum PE (this includes swimming in Year 4) and have opportunities to take part in a further hour of high quality PE and school sport.
As PE is a statutory subject all students are required to have and change into and out of a PE kit before and after their lessons or club.
