Physical education

Physical education through Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) is one of the most effective means of providing all children and young people with the skills, attitudes, values, knowledge and understanding for lifelong participation in society.

Physical Education is not about playing games or sport, nor is it about simply building fitness or accumulating a minimum amount of physical activity time spent in lessons – the focus should be on purposeful learning.
