MISS. L. HARRISON
Lead Sports Coach
At Eskdale Academy we believe that P.E is an essential part of the development and education of every child that helps create and sustain a healthy school environment.
We believe that all children should participate in P.E as it helps develop their physical competence, confidence and physical skills, promoting positive attitudes towards healthy active lifestyles and a range of areas in physical activity.
"P.E is a unique and vital contributor to a child’s physical development and well-being. A broad and balanced P.E Curriculum is intended to provide for children’s increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of physical situations. P.E experiences should encourage children to appreciate the importance of a healthy mind and body, and begin to understand those factors that affect health and fitness. "
