Working together we can achieve our best


PE is taught twice a week by either class teachers or Active Tameside. Every class has an Active Tameside coach at least once a week.

Active Tameside provides high quality physical education curriculum, inspiring all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. This provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.

Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. The programme fully integrates the national curriculum for physical education aims, to ensure 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.
  • Understand the purpose of good nutrition values.
