Physical Education + Health

Unique and Essential Learning

Forest Street Primary School recognizes that Health and Physical Education (HPE) is a unique and essential learning area focused on educative purposes. At Forest Street, we believe that the purpose of HPE is to provide ongoing,

developmentally appropriate and explicit learning about health and movement.

We follow the Victorian Curriculum priorities that provide opportunities for students to:

"Health and Physical Education is an entitlement for all young people in Australian schools – The Australian Council for Health, Physical Education and Recreation."

Forest Street subscribes to a strengths-based approach in Health and Physical

Education, wherein teachers take account of the range of their students’ current

levels of learning, abilities, strengths, goals and interests, and

accommodate diversity by providing flexible groupings, multiple means of

demonstrating knowledge and skills, and ongoing assessment.
