The Selwood PE department aspires to lay the foundations for life-long participation in sport and physical activity in all of our pupils.

The Curriculum During a child’s four year Selwood journey, they will experience a wide, varied PE curriculum including; athletics, basketball, cricket, dance, gymnastics, health related fitness, hockey, leadership, netball, orienteering, rounders, swimming, tennis and ultimate Frisbee.

Our curriculum not only allows our pupils to develop their physical literacy and confidence, but the fundamental life skills of teamwork, cooperation, creativity, leadership and resilience.

Selwood pupils also learn the importance and value of maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle into their adult lives.
