Pupils attend Physical Education for 2 periods a week.

All P.E courses are based on Curriculum for Excellence and SQA guidelines.

Pupils develop personal, social and life skills through a wide range of individual, group, competitive and aesthetic activities in small and larger groups working in both indoor and outdoor environments.

Pupils will learn to develop physical fitness, improve their knowledge and understanding of physical education and gain attributes which they need for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing now and in the future.

The focus on each activity will be differentiated to meet the needs and demands of all pupils to progress their skill development in purposeful, challenging, progressive and enjoyable environment.

Assessment takes place continually within the class using questions and answer, photos, videos and “I can do statements” worksheets.

The therapy involves using the moving bed of the trampoline to promote movement in the participant.

By carrying out basic through to highly technical physiotherapy techniques on the trampoline, the therapy can provide many therapeutic and physiological benefits:

· Facilitate and promote movement and balance,

· Improve fitness,

· Increase or decrease muscle tone,

· Help relax the participant,

· Improve sensory integration,

· Improve concentration

· and even improve communication skills.
