Department Introduction

WELCOME TO THE PE DEPARTMENT

A Parents Guide to Physical Education at Philips High School

Physical Education has a vital role to play within the education process as a whole and we believe that its impact is at its greatest in the following areas:-

(a)     the development and maintenance of physical functioning

(b)     the development of bodily skill

(c)      expression and creativity through gymnastics and dance

(d)     preparation for leisure

Some of our objectives as a department are:-

*        to promote an interest in and knowledge of a wide range of physical activities

*        to promote and maintain standards of personnel hygiene and tidiness, developing a desire for a healthy way of living

*        to develop an acceptance of moral values in terms of fair play, of modesty in victory and generosity in defeat

*        to develop a ready willingness to accept responsibility and the capacity to co-operate with others in single sex and co-educational activities

*        to produce knowledgeable spectators as well as competent performers

*        These objectives will be influenced by various factors (bearing in mind staffing, facilities and financial support).

*        the development stage of the child

*        his/her intellectual capacity

*        the type of physical activity taught

*        his/her desire for physical activity

Please do not hesitate to contact Mr Carinci should you wish to find out any additional information.
