Introduction to the subject:
Physical education is an integral part of young people's education. As a result of their learning in physical education, young people can increase their enjoyment, confidence and competence in a range of physical activities. They can learn about health-related fitness and to take responsibility for being physically active now and in the future. Overall, they can develop positive attitudes to physical activity and its importance in a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle.
Pupils should build on and embed the physical development and skills learned in key stages 1 and 2, become more competent, confident and expert in their techniques, and apply them across different sports and physical activities. They should understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others work. They should develop the confidence and interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school and in later life, and understand and apply the long- term health benefits of physical activity.
Useful links for KS3:
At Key Stage 4, learners build on the skills, knowledge and understanding acquired during Key Stage 3. Physical Education fosters a growing sense of personal
responsibility for a healthy and active lifestyle through developing activities that can be enjoyed and sustained in the school and community. Learners may
choose the area of experience they know they enjoy and select activities they want to develop
