DHA PE Vision

Our vision is to ensure that every child has access to and enjoys physical activity and exercise. We believe that, given the right environment and motivation, all children should actively participate in sport and continue to do so both beyond the classroom and into adulthood, while all the time maintaining a positive attitude and perception of sport and its wider benefits. Indeed, it is hoped that providing students with a wide variety of different sporting options (both in the curriculum and after school teams/clubs) will help secure this vision.
