Why is PE important?

PE plays a significant role to play in promoting and establishing healthy and active habits. By providing students with the skills, confidence and motivation to become active we hope to enhance the physical health and emotional wellbeing which helps build a foundation for happiness and success. It provides experiences that extend beyond the classroom allowing students to continue their enjoyment of sport and physical education through extra-curricular clubs, sporting competitions and leadership opportunities.

What does a good student look like?

Students will be continually striving to enhance their physical literacy, being able to display motivation, confidence, physical competence and knowledge and understanding throughout the broad range of curriculum activities. They will enjoy the subject and as such be more likely to participate in physical activity throughout their life.

What can I do at home to help me achieve in this subject?

Join a sports team in the local area utilising the school/club links.

Explore different physical activities either on your own or with parents and friends. Be active whether that includes going on bike rides, running with your dog.

Develop your sporting knowledge (cultural capital) by watching local, National, International sporting events.
