PE Excusal Policy

The Physical Education Curriculum delivered at St Gabriel’s encourages pupils to participate in a variety of roles, such as performer, official, coach and leader. Each of these roles gives pupils the opportunity to develop life skills such as teamwork, confidence, leadership, self-esteem and a determination to work to the best of their ability. Therefore, it is Departmental Policy that every pupil must always have their full, correct PE kit for every lesson, even if they are not able to practically take part. Their class teacher will then assign them a role in line with the National Curriculum for PE, which will enable the pupil to be fully engaged in the lesson. This way, they can still demonstrate progress in the lesson without impact on any illness or injury.

Obviously, there are occasions when an injury or illness is long-term and it is not possible or appropriate for a pupil to be based in Physical Education. We will make alternative provision for such cases and this will be decided through discussion with the Head of Physical Education.
