Physical Education and Sport is a
fundamental part of a pupil’s life at Mesaieed International School. We offer a broad range of activities during
Curriculum time and extend these in our after school sporting activities programme.
Pupils participate in at two PE lesson each week.
At MIS we follow the National
Curriculum for England and Wales. The PE curriculum is designed to be fully
inclusive and offers a broad range of activities for all pupils to experience.
The main purpose is to offer a high-quality physical education curriculum that
inspires all pupils to succeed. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to
become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.
In addition to this we offer opportunities to compete in sport and other
activities which aim to build character and help to embed values such as
fairness, integrity and respect.
