Curriculum Physical Education Education of the whole person must include physical development alongside development in other curriculum areas. In Loreto Prep there is an extensive programme of sports and physical education which in addition to promoting a healthy lifestyle enables our pupils to accept success and failure graciously and to co-operate with others using their best qualities to contribute to the greater good of the whole group. In addition to class lessons in gymnastics and games skills there is a wide range of extra-curricular activities including netball badminton rounders cross-country athletics and swimming. Pupils compete in local and national sporting events achieving outstanding results. All children participate in an annual Sports Day. An outdoor pursuits residential visit is the highlight of the year forYear 6.
