Welcome

The PE department is fully committed to providing a positive and supportive learning environment in which all pupils can achieve their full potential.


By setting the highest expectations for your child we are continuously rewarded with excellent behaviour and a determination to see each new challenge as an opportunity to show progress.  Partnership and cooperation are high priorities. Working together we can ensure that when your child is faced with difficult challenges and when success does not come instantly that they are encouraged and supported to show resilience and perseverance.


Our Broad General Education programme is designed to cover the Significant Aspects of Learning and to give pupils a positive experience of participation in physical activity.  Pupils experience a wide range of activities: team games, individual sports and creative and aesthetic activities.  Pupils are encouraged to build on their success and to undertake further PE study at National4/5, Higher and Advanced Higher and Leadership.


Our courses aim is to build lifelong skills through coaching, analysing performance, strategic planning as well as teaching pupils how to develop and sustain a healthy lifestyle.  Our PE courses provide opportunities for pupils to improve their communicating skills and problem solving skills whilst working with others and when working independently.


The PE department fully contributes to an extensive and wide ranging extra-curricular programme.  We believe in participation for all.  We promote the social, emotional, mental and physical benefits of regular participation in vigorous exercise.  It is our intention through this web page to celebrate the sporting success of our youngsters.
