Subject Ethos:

Physical Education at EAP encompasses a high-quality curriculum which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physical activities. We provide opportunities for pupils to enhance their health and fitness and become more aware of the importance of an active lifestyle. In practical activities opportunities are provided to compete in sport and build character and promote values such as fairness and respect. In theory lessons we aim to develop knowledge and understanding of the human body, concepts of health and fitness and the importance of living an active lifestyle.
