Key Stage 3 

In KS3 students will focus on improving their physical, social and emotional wellbeing through an engaging range of sport and physical activities. Development of student’s physical literacy is key, with students assessed on the attitudes, skills and knowledge or becoming happy, healthy and successful people through PE. This is achieved through experiencing a range of sporting activities within specific areas (invasion, net-wall, performing at maximum, accurate replication and striking and fielding).

We believe that students deserve a broad and ambitious Physical Education curriculum, rich in skills and knowledge, which develops physical, social and emotional well-being which prepares them well for future learning or employment. Our Physical Education curriculum will give students the opportunity to:

  • Develop a healthy life-long love of physical activity;
  • Experience a first class learning environment;
  • Be part of a team, and develop this well-being;
  • Experience a variety of opportunities and experience through sport and physical activity;
  • Gain leadership skills;
  • Develop physical, technical and tactical sporting skills.

Key Stage 4 

The intent of our curriculum is implemented through:  

  • studying a variety of sports and activities – experiencing tactics and strategies through a series of condition and competitive games. 
  • having the opportunity to attend extra-curricular activities and represent the school. Celebrating successes and manage the challenges of defeat. 
  • Performance – being able to develop skill in different scenarios, individually, as pairs and in groups or teams. Exploring tactics, strategies and implementing skills learnt to a broad range of sporting situations. 
  • Health, fitness and physical preparation – Students will understand and build on knowledge to answer the questions – how do I improve fitness? How to prepare and recover from physical activity safely? How do I test fitness? Understanding that will allow students to lead a healthy active lifestyle both now and in the future. 
  • Leadership & Character – participate in lesson with correct equipment, work together in pairs, groups and teams. Lead peers and through sport develop self-esteem, confidence and resilience. 
  • Knowledge/Theory – Develop an understanding of ‘anatomy and physiology’, ‘fitness and training’, ‘Nutrition’ and ‘sport injury’. Students will develop vocabulary and support knowledge through practical experiences. 
  • lessons that will be practical, progressive and differentiated. They will be challenging whilst supporting the needs of all students.
