Physical & Health Education

At Amman Baccalaureate School, Physical and Health Education (PHE) is a planned holistic programme of activities designed to contribute to the development of the student's physical, intellectual, emotional and social maturity, which aims to produce a physically educated and challenged individual. ABS provides a coherent PHE programme from K-10.


Personal, Social and Physical Education (Primary School K-Grade 5):

  • The programme is designed through safe, sequential, and enjoyable learning experiences of gradient levels and teaching tactics to ensure that students are challenged and provided with opportunities to:
  • develop/maintain good levels of personal health and fitness
  • improve/enhance psychomotor coordination
  • develop/refine movement skills in a wide range of activities
  • explore the knowledge and understanding related to physical activities, exercise and health
  • develop responsible, personal and social skills (self-esteem, sportsmanship, cooperation, teamwork, leadership, decision making, pride, spirit, etc)

Physical and Health Education (Middle Years School Grades 6-10):

PHE focuses on both learning about and through physical activity, incorporating objectives set by the International Baccalaureate (IB). Both dimensions help students to develop approaches to learning (ATL) across the curriculum. PHE contributes a unique perspective to the development of IB learner profile, promoting health of individuals and communities.


Through PHE, students learn to appreciate and respect the ideas of others, and develop effective collaboration and communication skills. It also offers many opportunities to build positive interpersonal relationships that can help students to develop a sense of social responsibility.


Physical activity and health are of central importance to human identity and global communities. They create meaningful connections among people, nations, cultures and the natural world, and they offer a range of opportunities to build intercultural understanding and greater appreciation for our common humanity.


The aims of the IB Middle Years Programme Physical and Health Education are to encourage and enable students to:

  • use inquiry to explore physical and health education concepts
  • participate effectively in a variety of contexts
  • understand the value of physical activity
  • achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle
  • collaborate and communicate effectively
  • build positive relationships and demonstrate social responsibility
  • reflect on their learning experience
