Physical education at Illogan Primary School promotes team work, imagination, resilience and high aspirations in its pupils.

Children are encouraged to become active and healthy members of the school community by participating in our broad and engaging curriculum. It balances indoor and outdoor sports, extra-curricular activities and competitions to enable children to develop key kills at all ages. With the aim of developing each child emotionally, aesthetically, spiritually, intellectually and socially which ultimately embodies our Illogan values of Aspire, Believe, Create and Dazzle

By providing children with 2 sessions of physical education a week all children are given the opportunity to participate, succeed and have their successes celebrated.
