Bicton Primary School promotes a respectful, nurturing, and supportive environment.

Health and Physical Education

Our students at Bicton learn how to enhance their own and others health, safety, wellbeing and physical activity participation in varied and changing contexts. Our Health Program and Physical Education Program focuses on ensuring our students focus on the curriculum but also our Bicton Values which form part of the core learning. Students are challenged at many levels and are able to engage in different team games, sports and activities that capture their interests. Our Health Program is supported by our school chaplain and we have a Physical Education specialist.

A small snapshot of key focuses and strategies Bicton is employing to continue to build our Health and Physical Education programs and pedagogy are:

  • Full implementation of the ‘Grow Your Mind’ program. This is a Mental Health program for staff and students.
  • Development of a school scope and sequence for the Grow Your Mind program.
  • Ensure all students are taught the ‘Protective Behaviours Program’ each year.
  • Continue to investigate other health programs, initiatives and resources that may further support our current Health program.
  • Successfully apply for Sporting Schools Funding to facilitate different physical education experiences for our students.
  • Implementation of iPads and technologies in Physical Education lesson to develop the formative assessment practices and feedback.
  • Improve the portable facilities available for inter-school carnivals.
