INTRODUCTION

We aim for students to develop their confidence and interest to engage in competitive sports and lead healthy, active lives in and out of school and in later life.

1. WHAT WILL I STUDY?

Our KS3 Physical Education curriculum is broad and balanced which allows pupils to develop the knowledge and skills to be physically active and healthy. The curriculum also promotes a love of physical activity and gives all pupils the confidence to participate.

At Key stage 3 students have four hours of curriculum time over a two-week period. Within the PE programme students study a wide range of activities each half term including both team and individual games, athletics, swimming, trampolining, fitness, dance and well-being.

In addition, pupils have a set lesson for inter house during the two-week cycle. The inter house activity alternates each half term and the points are added to the whole school house competition. This further helps to develop additional life skills such as team work, communication and leadership.

 

Within key stage 4 physcial education pupils will tackle complex and challenging physical activities. They will be involved in a range of activities that develops personal fitness and promotes an active, healthy lifestyle. Throughout key stage 4 physical eduaction pupils will be taught how to develop their technique and improve their performance in competitive sports and physical activities.
