Why PE?

School Sports Psychology

“Better support for schools and teachers is needed to harness the full spectrum of learning potential PE provides. A starting point is to broaden understanding about the role PE can play in schools”

“The learning intentions of PE in this post-lockdown era should be constructed to develop the life and learning skills that children have missed out on during their social isolation.  In order to successfully counter the learning losses during lockdown we need to think differently about the place of PE in schools and the value it can provide to the children”
