Physical Education is a compulsory subject within the National Curriculum. A vast PE timetable allows children to try activities which they may not otherwise participate within. It allows children to maintain a healthy lifestyle, understand how their body works and teaches them core life skills such as fair play, communication, teamwork and confidence.
The 4 main aims of the PE National Curriculum:
- To develop competence in a broad range of activities,
- To remain active over a sustained period,
