What is PE?

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

 

Why is it an important part of my child's learning?

PE is important because it allows every child to:
  • develop and excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • be physically active for sustained period of time
  • engage in competitive sport and activities
  • lead healthy and active lifestyles
