Physical Education Policy

Physical Education in the Northern Ireland Curriculum
One of the aims of the Northern Ireland Curriculum is to ensure that every pupil receives a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based. There are six Areas of Study within the Northern Ireland Curriculum. Physical education is one of the compulsory subjects within the Creative and Expressive Studies Area of Study.
The legislation for physical education in the Northern Ireland Curriculum is intended to ensure that all schools provide a balanced physical education programme which will enable all pupils, including those with special educational needs, to participate in a carefully structured range of activities. Through such a programme, pupils should have opportunities to:

  • extend, refine and become more proficient in a range of psych-

motor skills;
develop personal qualities such as self-esteem, self-confidence, tolerance and empathy;

  • interact and co-operate with others working towards common goals; and

  • experience and appreciate the contribution of physical education to the promotion of a healthy lifestyle.

Physical education, concerned as it is with the body in action in a variety of contexts, can also contribute to different subjects of the curriculum, such as language studies, science, mathematics, art and design, music, and drama.

Aims of Physical Education in Upper Ballyboley Primary School

Upper Ballyboley Primary School recognises the entitlement of all children to full access to the Northern Ireland Curriculum. Physical Education makes an important contribution in the overall pursuit of this ideal through the extension of their movement vocabulary and the development of their curiosity and self esteem.

This contribution is characterised by four specific aims for P.E.
1. The aspiration to develop each child to their full potential in relation to skills, understanding and behaviour through the physical activities laid down in the revised programmes of study.
2. To develop a positive approach to leisure activities which may be carried on outside school and into adult life.
3. To promote positive attitudes towards health and hygiene.
4. To provide a balanced and progressive programme through regular participation in P.E. which provides each child with opportunities for success and fun.
By offering a wide opportunity for involvement in:
* games

* educational gymnastics

* dance

* athletics

* swimming

* outdoor education

the school endeavours to fulfil these aims for every child in the school.
