Physical Education

Why PE is Important


Physical Education is an important subject which allows children to understand the importance of living healthy lives. It teaches a multitude of skills which can be implemented in the different parts of their lives. It also gives children a chance to work within a team to achieve a goal.


National Curriculum Purpose of Study


A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.


Aims The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives.
