Welcome to PE
|PE develops students' competence and confidence to take part in a range of physical activities that become a central part of their lives, both in and out of school.
The Long Eaton School PE curriculum enables all students to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activity. Students will develop a wide range of skills and the ability to use tactics, strategies and compositional ideas to perform successfully. When students perform, they are asked to think about what they are doing, analyse the situation and make decisions. They also have the opportunity to reflect on their own and others' performances and find ways to improve.
The essential skills and processes in PE that students need to learn to make progress are developing skills in physical activity, making and applying decisions, developing physical and mental capacity, evaluating and improving and making informed choices about healthy active lifestyles.

The course is divided between practical activities (where you can be assessed as a performer, leader or coach/official) and theory lessons. These will cover a variety of areas ranging from the bones and joints to drugs in sport, from first aid to the history of the Olympics.
