Subject overview

The purpose of physical education lessons is to ensure that all students are fit, healthy, happy and enjoy participating in physical activity. All students will develop practical skills in a range of activities, leadership skills and personal skills to provide them with the key characteristics required to ensure they all reach their full potential in life.

In Core PE, students will participate in a practical activity, which is relevant and specific to the nature of the class and all students will participate in a fitness session each week to develop fitness levels and make students aware of the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle.
