Physical Education Mission Statement

At Bailey Street Alternative Provision Academy, the goal of our Physical Education department is to enhance the learning process by making the classes enjoyable as well as educational. The most important objective is for the student to understand how important physical activity (exercise) and nutrition are to maintaining an active lifestyle throughout their life. Teamwork, social skills, and sportsmanship are also a prime focus upon during each activity.
