This right applies at all times, for example during immigration proceedings, housing decisions or the child’s day-to-day home life.
Article 15 (freedom of association) Every child has the right to meet with other children and to join groups and organisations, as long as this does not stop other people from enjoying their rights

With the current child obesity crisis in the UK, Physical Education and sport plays a vital role in tackling physical, mental and social issues amongst our students. Alongside this, the role that PE and sport plays in developing a range of skills for the workplace is crucial; within our curriculum we will aspire to create confident leaders, effective communicators, proactive learners and resilient and responsible citizens. It is our intention to be able to offer a personalised curriculum to challenge all learners in order to ensure they are all able to reach their full potential and be prepared for the next stage in their life. In addition to this it is our intent that our extra-curricular programme will also offer students the opportunity to engage in a lifelong love for physical activity.
