Physical Education

What is Physical Education?


John 3 1:2 of the Bible
"Beloved, I hope that you are prospering in every aspect and in good health,
just as your soul is prospering."



Physical Education is the planned, progressive learning that takes place in school curriculum timetabled time and which is delivered to all pupils. This involves both ‘learning to move’ (i.e. becoming more physically competent) and ‘moving to learn’ (e.g. learning through movement, a range of skills and understandings beyond physical activity, such as co-operating with others). The context for the learning is physical activity, with children experiencing a broad range of activities, including sport and dance.
