Physical Education

Vision

‘To develop healthy, capable and resilient young athletes, while attaining widespread, inclusive, sustainable and enjoyable participation and success for all levels of individual athletic achievement.’

WHY is Sport and Physical Activity so important?

• Physically active students perform better in school than their inactive peers

• Improvements in general motor skills, functional fitness and physiological health

• Improvements in self-esteem, body image and mood

• Improvements in persistence, resilience and initiative. 

• Improvements in community cohesion, teamwork and positive relationships

• Improvements in cognitive functioning, memory and academic performance

In summary, the Queen’s College PE Department wishes to:

OFFER – Provision and quality coaching for all

ENGENDER – Enthusiasm and a lifelong love of sport and physical activity with all

EXPECT – High standards from all

The Physical Education curriculum is designed to be accessible for all pupils.

We have one 60 minute PE lesson per week where every child will gain the opportunity to learn new skills and concepts, to take part in some vigorous physical activity and to enjoy themselves.
