Expectations
Physical Education is a compulsory subject for all our pupils from year seven to eleven. It is a valued subject and has many cross-curricular links especially with health and fitness. Injury or illness may prevent a pupil physically participating in an activity but does not stop their involvement in the mental aspects of the lesson such as coach, official, instructor, choreographer or analyst.

Pupils who are unable to participate because of injury or illness should bring a note of explanation signed by a parent or carer. Pupils who are unable to participate should also bring their kit to the lesson. Exceptions to this rule is if the pupil has had a major operation, a long term medical condition that prevents them from getting changed or have broken/dislocated a bone. In addition pupils should hand in any valuables to their teacher before the start of the lesson who will lock them away in the faculty office.
