why do we have to study physical education

Why Study Physical Education? Physical Education is an integral part of our school. It is a subject that contributes a great deal to the ethos of the school. The philosophy of the PE department is in harmony with that of the whole school, we aim to promote students and staff alike to partake in a healthy and active lifestyle. At Bedale High School we believe that each child is entitled to full access to participate in physical education regardless of aptitude or ability.

It is our intention to develop the whole child Б mentally, socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically. We are aware that all children require a programme of physical education to fulfil their developmental needs.

The programme is therefore directed to fulfil each childБs needs in a positive learning environment, which promotes enjoyment, and some appreciation of the subject area. Physical activity can. People who are physically active tend to live longer and have lower risk for heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, depression, and some cancers.

Physical activity can also help with weight control, and may improve academic achievement in students. Children and young people aged between 5бand 19-years-old should take part in aбminimum of бof physical activity every day. (BHF)
