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