Physical Education – The Purpose of PE

The main purpose of health and wellbeing within Curriculum for Excellence is to develop the knowledge and understanding, skills, capabilities and attributes necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing now and in the future.

The rationale behind this is that learning through health and wellbeing enables children and young people to:

• make informed decisions in order to improve their mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing

• experience challenge and enjoyment

• experience positive aspects of healthy living and activity for themselves

• apply their mental, emotional and social skills to pursue a healthy lifestyle

• make a successful move to the next stage of education or work

• establish a pattern of health and wellbeing which will be sustained into adult life, and which will help to promote the health and wellbeing of the next generation of Scottish children

• and, for some, perform at high levels in sport or prepare for careers within the health and leisure industries
