Physical Education (PE)

Head of Department: Miss G Pettican -

A high-quality PE curriculum enables all students to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activity.  They develop a wide range of skills and the ability to use tactics, strategies and compositional ideas to perform successfully.  When they are performing, they think about what they are doing, analyse the situation and make decisions.  They also reflect on their own and others’ performances and find ways to improve them.  As a result, they develop the confidence to take part in different physical activities and learn about the value of healthy, active lifestyles. Discovering what they like to do, what their aptitudes are at school, and how and where to get involved in physical activity helps them make informed choices about lifelong physical activity.

PE helps students develop personally and socially.  They work as individuals, in groups and in teams, developing concepts of fairness and of personal and social responsibility.  They take on different roles and responsibilities, including leadership, coaching and officiating.  Through the range of experiences that PE offers, they learn how to be effective in competitive, creative and challenging situations.
