Physical Education Departmental Aims

In Physical Education we aspire to fulfil the following aims for all pupils:

• Develop their knowledge and understanding of human movement by engaging in a range of physical activities.
• Improve their physical performance.
• Develop social skills and promote acceptable standards of behaviour and positive attitudes to others.
These life skills are also transferable to all other areas of the curriculum.
