“Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.” John F. Kennedy
At Stobhillgate, we recognise how important a child’s physical health and emotional well-being is and the relationship between these and academic achievement. It is known that physical activity can improve academic performance across the curriculum, as well as enhancing an individual’s confidence and social skills. Participating in physical activity can help a child to feel more energised, positive and more able to make informed decisions due to developed leadership skills.
Physical Education at Stobhillgate promotes opportunities for children to be creative, cooperative and competitive and to face up to different challenges both as individuals and in groups. We also place great emphasis on children working as a team to problem solve in order to improve.
We believe it is important that children learn the notion of fair play, honest competition, good sportsmanship and are exposed to situations whereby they must deal with both success and defeat.
At Stobhillgate, the children will participate in a vast range of sports and competitions, igniting within them a passion for fitness and personal development.

We have been working closely with the Morpeth Partnership to produce documentation for each subject area. These documents ensure clear progression and map out the teaching and learning journey your child will take in relation to each specific subject through each phase of their education.
