Our aim in PE is to promote positive experiences of sport and physical activities to encourage lifelong healthy habits and participation. We do this through a broad yet balanced and ambitious curriculum through the 4 assessment criteria of:


1. Acquire & Develop

2. Select & Apply

3. Evaluate & Improve

4.Knowledge & Understanding of Health and Fitness.

We plan to cover these assessment criteria through the activity areas of:

1. Invasion Games

2. Striking & Fielding Games

3. Net / Wall Games

4. Athletics & Gymnastics

5. OAA 

6. Dance 

St Damian’s also has a very strong extra-curricular programme, where pupils are encouraged to continue to develop their skills through lunchtime and after school activities. We follow the Tameside School Sport Partnership which allows us to compete in fixtures in many sports and activities against other schools in the Borough.
