‘Developing a healthy future  for one and all’


The delivery of inspirational and high quality Physical Education forms a fundamental part of Crowan School’s ethos.

We recognise that as a school we are responsible for the development of the entire child, we are committed to developing each child’s physical well-being as well as their minds.

We endeavour to provide all pupils with the knowledge and skills to enable them to become healthy and active young adults.

We will ensure that children are participating regularly in a varied and innovative range of activities. This gives them the opportunity, regardless of ability, to meet physical challenges, develop essential motor-skills, appreciate the fun and joy of competition, increase their self-esteem, and at the same time develop strategies for improvement.


Our mission in Physical Education is to enable each pupil to reach their full potential for future success in society.


 Aims and objectives

  Physical education develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These include dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, athletics and outdoor adventure activities.

Physical education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. Thus we enable them to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.


  The aims of Physical Education are:


  • Ensuring that Crowan Primary School endeavours to develop the physical literacy of every pupil.
  • to encourage children to work and play with others in a range of group situations;
  • to develop the way children perform skills and apply rules and conventions for different activities;
  • to increase the children’s ability to use what they have learnt to improve the quality and control of their performance;
  • to teach children to recognise and describe how their bodies feel during exercise;
  • to develop the children’s enjoyment of physical activity through creativity and imagination including development of their own next steps to success;
  • to develop an understanding in children of how to succeed in a range of physical activities and how to evaluate their own success, using Physical Education specific assessment booklets and peer assessment;
  • provide pupils with the opportunity to develop their own leadership skills and use them both within the school environment and in the wider community;
  • encourage and provide opportunities for pupils to represent their school and houses in competitive situations at levels 1, 2 and 3.
