Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Physical Education (PE)

Purpose of Study

Pupils should build on and embed the physical development and skills learned in key stages 1 and 2, become more competent, confident and expert in their techniques, and apply them across different sports and physical activities. They should understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work. They should develop the confidence and interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school and in later life, and understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.

PE is an important life skill that students require to learn and use throughout school and beyond education. Every day PE plays a crucial part of our lives, how we develop a healthy active lifestyle. PE teaches us the biomechanics of how every day-to-day movements are completed and the science behind it. It also teaches us and helps us to understand the importance of a healthy balanced diet, why we need certain food groups and the negatives of having an unhealthy lifestyle.
