P.E.

Physical Education develops pupils’ physical competence and confidence and their ability to use these to perform in a range of activities. It promotes skillfulness, physical development and knowledge of the body in action. Physical Education provides opportunities for pupils to be creative, competitive, cooperative and face up to different challenges as individuals and in groups and teams. It promotes positive attitudes toward healthy and active lifestyles.

 

Pupils learn how to think in different ways to suit a wide variety of creative, competitive, cooperative and challenging activities. They learn how to plan, perform and evaluate actions, ideas and performances to raise their aspirations and to improve their aptitudes, abilities, preferences and make choices about how to get involved in lifelong physical activity.

 

We seek to provide a full, varied and interesting Physical Education curriculum which challenges, engages and excites staff and pupils alike. We see Physical Education as a vital part of the education experience as a whole.

 

As PE forms such an important aspect of our learning, it is also an important element of our ‘Immersive Curriculum’.  The ‘immersion’ can manifest itself in REAL projects, for example, where pupils have designed, organised and led a whole school sports days or a Challenge Based Learning lesson where pupils have been asked to create a series of sports activities that can be led by sports leaders at lunchtimes.  

 

Lessons will either be designed to fit this immersive model or else they will act as stand-alone high quality sports lessons.
