Physical Education

Welcome to the web page of the Physical Education department.

Staff

The PE department has four members of staff -

  • Mrs L McGurk (Principal Teacher)
  • Mr R Begley
  • Mrs R Nicol 
  • Mrs J Leck

Our aims

Our main aim is to promote health through participation in physical activity, we try to offer pupils as wide a choice as possible so that they can find an activity that they enjoy and can take part in out with class time.. The Main theme running through all classes is:

“BRING YOUR KIT, TAKE PART AND DO THE BEST YOU CAN”

We have recently re-introduced a PE kit with the support of the Parent Council. The kit includes -

  • blue P.E. polo shirt / t-shirt
  • navy or black shorts / track trousers (no leggings)
  • a change of suitable trainers

Please note that football tops are not allowed to be worn at any time in PE.

All sections in S1 - S3 are broad banded in ability groups. Core classes are taught in single sex classes. This promotes a positive attitude to physical activity at this important age. Pupils/visitors are welcomed to the department in physical education; we have bright displays of pupil work in class and in the corridor and the use of praise both orally and written is strongly encouraged.
