Senior Cycle Physical Education - Introduction:
As part of senior cycle education, it is envisaged that physical education will be available in two forms;
1) Leaving Certificate Physical Education as a subject which will be assessed as part of the Leaving Certificate examinations for the first time in 2020.
2) The senior cycle physical education (SCPE) framework which has a different purpose and focus. It provides a flexible planning tool for physical education for all students in senior cycle and will not be assessed as part of the Leaving Certificate examination.
Senior Cycle Key skills:
Physical Education incorporates all the key skills of the Senior Cycle
Overview of the programme;
The SCPE Framework includes a number of areas of study representative of a range of practical activities, each of which have particular characteristics and contributes to the attainment of the overall aim of physical education. These areas of study are:
