At Loxford, we strongly believe that Physical Education and Sport provides students with an excellent opportunity to refine skills such as team work, leadership, communication, decision making and developing the mental and academic skillset needed to succeed. These attributes will help your child not only in their academic school life, but in their adult lives also. Sport and Physical Education is an important component of a healthy active lifestyle, which we are keen to promote both in school and into adulthood. We all want child and young people to enjoy participating in sport – and parents play a key role in that. We encourage you to motivate your child to take part in as many physical activities as possible, starting this week with inter-form for year 8 pupils. Encourage them to come along and compete for their tutor group to gain points for participation.
