Aim of the Maricourt Catholic High School PE department

We want every pupil to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to lead a healthy active lifestyle and participate in lifelong physical activity.

This is very much in line with the current National Curriculum Expectations that requires…

  • In Years 7-9 Pupils should be taught to: take part in competitive sports and activities outside school through community links or sports clubs, and
  • In Years 10 &11 Pupils should be taught to: continue to take part regularly in competitive sports and activities outside school through community links or sports clubs.

The Chief Medical Officer recommends that pupils should engage in an average of 60 minutes exercise per day.
