The children at Castle Hill are traditionally very sporty and this tradition we want to continue! At Castle Hill we are passionate about ensuring all children are developing in all aspects Physically and socially. We have a strong belief in making sure that our PE lessons are suited to the needs of our children and are challenged as often as possible. We are delighted to be working with Charlotte Davies who is the director of Fit2Learn. She holds the National Professional Qualification for Head teachers and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. Through Daleen Smith she came to understand the link between child development and cognitive skills. In 2012 she founded Fit 2 Learn; and subsequently trained as a Tomatis Consultant. In 2016 she won the prize for best case study at the Tomatis Paris Convention. Fit 2 Learn is a social enterprise company that combines research and advice to all people on how they can achieve their potential through good control of their own basic physiology. We have planned our PE curriculum around the national curriculum and the help of Charlotte by using her book ‘The Maze of Learning’ to gain ideas to incorporate into lessons. All children to be screened twice a year in September and in June on their physical needs.
