Physical Education

Vision

We believe that physical education is a vital component for the development of a student’s physical, mental and social well-being. Our diverse program will allow students the opportunity to develop individual skills and introduce new, enjoyable experiences for life long physical fitness and well-being. We will provide information for knowledge in proper exercise techniques and practices, good nutritional habits.

 

Regular participation in sport and physical activity can help to reduce the risk of heart failure; improve physical fitness; help with weight management; promote good health; instill self- discipline; develop skill; improve self- confidence; reduce stress and develop lifelong learning skills.

 

Our students will be able to establish lifelong fitness goals and objectives. These goals will help them develop motor skills necessary to participate successfully and skillfully in different physical activities and to help them become more responsible and respectful to the games’ rules and to their opposing and team players. Thus, this will develop and reinforce cooperative behavior, organization, and responsibility.

 

Furthermore, our aim is to enable students to appreciate and understand the value of physical education and its relationship to a healthy disciplined, and active lifestyle.

We will try to transition PE department to lead on whole school wellbeing and in particular, adopting the strong evidence base linking getting active with good mental health and improved performance in the classroom.

 

We believe now is the right time to repurpose our subject very publicly. This secondary PE special supplement aims to lay out the challenges PE faces but also highlight the great practice and innovation that can be achieved when it is driven by a skilled and committed profession.

Students should be able to understand the principles and concepts related to a variety of physical activities, respect themselves and their social and physical environment, and show sensitivity to their own different cultures.
