Health and Safety

Health and safety is about protecting against risks. When taking part in physical exercises and activities it is important that you do so safely. PE tends to involve speed and equipment, and can be dangerous if certain guidelines are not followed.

Even if you are doing PE indoors, it's still important to know the guidelines and follow the rules. There is dangerous equipment indoors too, such as wall ladders, ropes and balancing bars/frames. And before you even start any exercise, it's important to get your body ready.
