Spiritual Development in PE

During the range of activities that students participate in, whether core PE lessons, GCSE PE lessons or extra-curricular PE sessions students develop a sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them.

Moral Development in PE

PE in general teaches students about code of conduct, etiquette, handshake before and after matches, applauding the opposition, fair play, unwritten rules and sportsmanship. In every lesson students abide by the rules and regulations, gaining a good understanding of rules of sport and the importance of infringements such as penalties and red cards allow students to understand the consequences of their actions which in turn helps students apply this understanding to their own lives.

The concepts of self-discipline to excel are essential. Students are taught that the only way you can achieve in sport to a high standard is if you work hard and if you can discipline yourself to train and apply yourself.

In lessons

Moral dilemmas in sport are always hitting the head lines. In GCSE PE, students investigate into deviance issues in sport such as the use of performance enhancing drugs and match fixing.
