Curriculum Intent:
Physical Education at Selby High is built on the foundations of enjoyment, learning, participation and success. As a result, there is both breadth and depth to the curriculum which incorporates increasing pupil choice and opportunity from year 9 to 11. The PE department’s aims closely tie in with the whole school aims.

1.  For all pupils to understand that opportunity, combined with effort, can lead to success and achievement.
2.  For pupils to achieve their full physical potential and enjoy their sport in a safe and positive environment.
3.  For pupils to develop effective skills to allow them to work with others, develop their teamwork and lead through sport
4.  To ensure pupils develop their understanding of maintaining a physically and mentally healthy lifestyle.
5.  To develop competitive, but fair, sports people who show responsibility, empathy and respect, at all times.
