Physical Education

Within the PE department we aim to :-

  1. Provide a happy and enjoyment filled environment to allow pupils to prosper.
  2. Offer a diverse and wide range of sporting experiences at both a curricular and extra-curricular level.
  3. Provide inclusion in all lessons for all pupils regardless of ability.
  4. Allow all pupils to be actively engaged in lessons regardless of physical participation – everyone always has a role (performer, coach, official)
  5. Help pupils to recognise and appreciate their own talents and the talents of others in whatever role.
  6. Encourage pupils to live an active, healthy lifestyle beyond the St Michael’s community.
  7. Encourage pupils to be the best they can be as a performer, coach or official.
  8. Encourage pupils to always ‘play to the rules’ as well as being gracious in defeat and modest in victory.
