Physical Education Department
Purpose of study:
We aim to deliver a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all students to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. This includes opportunities for students to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness, as well as providing opportunities to compete in sport and other activities. These activities help to build character and to embed values such as fairness, teamwork and respect.
In line with the robust national curriculum for physical education, we aim to ensure that all students:
• Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
• are physically active for sustained periods of time
• Engage in competitive sports and activities
• Develop healthy, active lifestyles
In order to fulfil these aims we have designed a set of activities that enable OES students to both develop themselves physically, but also as part of a competitive environment. Moreover, we collaborate with external Sports Programs and Sports Clubs to further develop our students.
