Teaching Philosophy

At the PE Project we have brainstormed our teaching philosophy and decided upon seven-principles for helping lead high quality learning in PE, these are:


We believe that students need to know that their teachers CARE about them. Theodore Roosevelt put it best “Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.”



We believe that learning should be PERSONALIZED to the specific needs of each pupil.


Student Centered

We believe learning should be STUDENT-CENTERED as pupils should lead their own learning, grow in independence and work harder than the teacher.



We believe that in order for pupils to be motivated learners, teachers should provide them with increasing amounts of AUTONOMY - a sense of freedom or choice over what they are learning, and how they will learn it.



We believe that teachers should help students find their optimal state of flow, or MASTERY so that pupils are able to find the sweet spot where the challenge is neither too easy, nor too hard.



We believe it is vital that pupils find PURPOSE in their learning, and can understand how it impacts their own and others’ lives, both now and in the future.



We believe that all learning experience should be as AUTHENTIC as possible, and should replicate closely to real-life (or game) situations, whether dealing with physical, mental or social challenges.

High Expectations

For these principles to be successful we believe they must be built upon a foundation of high expectations - aiming to bring out the best in every student.

Growth Mindset

Our principles are not set in stone, rather they are depicted as banners in front of each pillar. We should regularly challenge ourselves to explore different ways of doing things which will ultimately refine our philosophy.
