Physical Education

The primary aim for the Physical Education department at this school is to ensure that PE is for all pupils. We are trying to achieve a standard where all pupils are actively engaged in PE at all times and begin to see PE as part of a lifestyle choice that they continue with out of school time.

We are focused on health & wellbeing of pupils in PE and strive to ensure that we teach them to become:

  • Successful learners
  • Responsible citizens
  • Effective contributors
  • Confident individuals

Our main focus is providing a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week to all pupils. We link with other departments in S3 to deliver a Health & Wellbeing course that pulls together the experiences they have had throughout their broad general education. As well as core PE time, we encourage pupils to develop their interests further by providing pathways from broad general education towards appropriate certificated PE courses such as National 4, National 5, Higher and Sports Leader Award. 

We also strive to provide pathways and promote excellence through curricular and extra curricular clubs during and after school hours and we aim to teach pupils the skills needed to succeed in a variety of activities.
