Broad General Education

S1 – S3 Core PE

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, social and physical 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.


It also enables some to perform at high levels in sport or prepare for careers within the health and leisure industries.

The Health and Well-Being Experiences from HWB 3-01a to HWB 4-19a are the responsibility all adults who are working together to support the learning and development of children and young people. These will be addressed on an on-going basis in PE from S1 to S3

The following experiences and outcomes will be addressed throughout all activities within the S1- 3 curriculum, and also throughout all school sport and extra-curricular physical activities
