Welcome to the PE Department

All pupils are entitled to 2 period of Physical Education a week.
All P.E courses are based on Curriculum for Excellence and SQA guidelines.

Pupils develop personal, social and life skills through a wide range of individual, group, competitive and aesthetic activities in small and larger groups working in both indoor and outdoor environments.

Pupils will learn to develop physical fitness, improve their knowledge and understanding of physical education and gain attributes which they need for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing now and in the future.

The focus on each activity will be differentiated to meet the needs and demands of all pupils to progress their skill development in purposeful, challenging, progressive and enjoyable environment.
