It is no secret that physical activity is necessary to a person’s well-being. Because children are continuously developing physically and emotionally, they are especially affected by the benefits of activity – and inversely, the negative effects of inactivity.
At Dinnington we compliment the exercise a child gets at home and ensure that physical activity remains fun and develops a lifelong love of exercise. Consequently, it is vital that schools provide Physical Education programs to ensure that each child stays active. At Dinnington High School our physical education programs directly benefit students’ physical health. The PE department are second to none in their dedication and drive to ensure that all students recognize the importance of fitness. This has resulted in them developing a curriculum that is inclusion for all students and ensure that nobody is left behind.
Furthermore the PE department work tirelessly to ensure that students have the opportunity to play sport at local, regional and national levels and in recent years have organized tours to Canada, United States of America and South Africa to play sport.
We believe that staying fit is a fundamental of a healthful lifestyle; it supports the building blocks upon which our students develop into healthy, focused and resilient adults.
