Physical Education (PE)

Douglas Rochestown ETNS is an Active School. We focus on developing Fundamental Movement Skills and ensure that our pupils have opportunities to participate in a variety of physical activities.

As an example of the importance that we place in PE, our school chose this subject as an area for school improvement in 2019. Please see our School Improvement Plan.

At Douglas Rochestown ETNS we ensure every child is provided with 60 minutes of PE a week. We are lucky to be able to use the sports hall next to our school for our PE lessons. We focus on all six of the strands every year. This plan shows how we split up the strands over the year.

Our teachers use both the PSSI lesson plans and also the ‘Move Well, Move Often’ resources to guide our delivery of the PE curriculum.
