 Chris Quigley Essential Curriculum Milestones



At Stillington School we ensure that our PE curriculum is inclusive and allows children to develop the fundamental skills that they will use in a variety of sports and activities. Children are provided with opportunities to demonstrate improvement with the skills they have been given to achieve their personal best. Our pupils are physically active and understand the importance of exercise and how this leads to a healthy lifestyle. All pupils understand the values and importance of fair play and being a good sportsperson.
