Our children will develop resilience in success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities. At Colgate, children will understand the importance of physical activity and looking after our mental health, whilst developing their self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and team sports. 


At Colgate, our children to develop an understanding of the diverse range of athletes who compete on a national and international level. We want our children to understand the range of life experiences these athletes had growing up. All children will participate in a range of sporting events, allowing children to see the range of opportunities open to them. At Colgate, our children are encouraged to challenge some of the stereotypical views in sports, providing equal opportunities for all.  


At Colgate, we will encourage children to participate in physical activity within our local and wider community. All children will be given the opportunity to take part in team sports and charity events with other schools. We make links with other organisations to allow children to understand the importance of a healthy diet and physical activity. Our children, will become great young leaders, organising and officiating events, whilst being motivating and instilling excellent sporting attitudes in others.
