The Department of Education (DE) commissioned the Education and Training Inspectorate to undertake a thematic evaluation of physical education (PE) provision in primary schools. During March 2022, the ETI engaged with 84 primary schools to observe practice and discuss their experiences of delivering the statutory PE curriculum.
The evaluation identifies existing effective practice in the delivery of PE across the primary school sector in Northern Ireland, including examples of best practice. It reports too that schools and stakeholders are not realising the full potential of PE to contribute positively to the learning process and the children’s physical and emotional health and wellbeing. The report identifies the next steps to be considered and acted upon collectively and decisively by schools, DE and other stakeholders.
