Our aim is to build character, embed values and develop key life skills by delivering a high-quality curriculum. We will inspire all pupils to have the confidence to participate and succeed in a variety of physical activities, to enable informed choices, which leads to a healthy active lifestyle.
The PE Department was monitored by the Senior Leadership Team in conjunction with the HOD in the Autumn Term 2017. The inspection programme was carried out as part of the school’s internal monitoring programme of self-evaluation. Departments are inspected as part of a rolling programme of monitoring, evaluation and review. The internal inspection process provides invaluable information for the department to use in improvement planning, but also information which will contribute to our whole school evaluation and reporting.
The evidence used to inform the judgements includes: scrutiny of documentation, analysis of students’ work and observation of 7 lessons across KS3 and KS4. All lessons were graded in accordance with Scottish Inspection criteria and feedback was given to individual teaching staff.
The overall effectiveness of PE was judged to be Outstanding
