We study PE to develop the physical, social and emotional well-being of our students. We aim to provide an engaging and challenging curriculum that allows students to achieve beyond their expectations. We aim to support students to become as physically, socially and emotionally well as they can be. We do this by providing a curriculum that promotes the following:
- Inspires students to succeed and excel in competitive sport;
- Facilitates growth in students confidence to access physical activity;
- Supports students’ health, fitness and well-being;
- Encourages students to lead a healthy, active lifestyle by teaching them about the factors that affect their health such as diet and energy expenditure;
- Builds character and embed values such as teamwork, fairness and respect;
- Encourage students to lead healthy, active lifestyles;
- Develop competence in social, cognitive, creative, personal & physical skills;
- Provide students with a variety of opportunities to study sport with a recognised qualification.
Our Big Ideas
The Major themes which run through PE:
Cognitive –Construction of thought processes, judge performance, react to game situations, analyse strengths/weaknesses.
Creative –Being able to think creatively within certain situations, link actions, change tactics, demonstrate flair, surprise opponents.
Physical – Linking skills together to support performance within specific sports, link movements together, perform skills with fluency, perform under pressure.
Social – Improving leadership and empathy skills within physical activity. Guide/help others, lead small groups, take on different roles, inspire and enthuse others.
Personal – The ability to develop own traits to improve performance within sport. Show perseverance, set targets, show desire to improve, practice outside lessons.
Healthy & active lifestyles – What this means, how students can achieve this, short and long term effects of exercise, impacts on their lives at school and beyond.
