Physical Development

Our vision for Physical Education at William Lilley:


Our children develop an understanding of the importance of exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle; including physical and mental health.  Children have a progressive curriculum which builds on their gross and fine motor skills and builds into skills for Gymnastics, Games and Dance.  Physical activity is evident within each day and sports funding is utilised to enhance CPD, accessing local opportunities and promote physical activity for all.
