At Hildenborough CEP School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. As a Church of England school, we believe that the skills and attitudes the children learn through sport strongly promote and reflect our Christian values, supporting the children’s health and happiness.
