As a school and a management team we understand that we need to work together to ensure the best possible outcomes for our children. At SDBI we welcome your thoughts and suggestions on how we can best maximise the learning for your child. Every child is different and parents know their child best, that’s why we have an open door policy and encourage you to come and visit us whenever you wish. We will always make time for you and promise to listen and work together to achieve the best for your child.
HEALTH AND PE CONSULTATION 2017-Please complete the SURVEY MONKEY at the bottom of this page.
At least once every two years the boards of trustees is required to consult with the parent community about the school’s health and physical education programmes. The purpose of this consultation is to outline the programmes that we are delivering, how we are delivering health education and what we see as the health education needs of our students.
This page outlines our Health and Physical education programme which is linked in one curriculum document. For the purpose of providing clear information, they have been separated on this page. Attachments relating to some of these programmes have been provided where appropriate.
Opportunity to comment on our provision and programmes in these areas is provided. We welcome your feedback as this allows us to develop policies and practices that reflect the needs of students at our school.
