Whilst children are at school, they follow a PE Curriculum designed by The PE Hub. As members of this hub, we have been provided with a Parent Portal as a focus point for parents to bring activity into the home. The portal currently has two strands, Fitness and Games, with Problem Solving to come soon. New content will be added weekly, so there are fresh ideas for parents and children to get active within the home.
