Our Physical Education department aims to provide high quality Physical Education and sport to enable all our young people, whatever their circumstances or ability, to take part in and enjoy all aspects.
The curriculum offers a wide, balanced programme of activities, which will enable all young people to improve and achieve in line with their potential.
Physical education, sport and regular physical activity is part of a deep, rich, broad and exciting curriculum. It provides children and young people with the opportunity to express themselves physically, challenge themselves and others, experience different environments and activities, work together and release energy, which helps, de-stress and lowers anxiety levels.
By creating a positive environment and by putting PE, sport and regular physical activity at the heart of school life, we are supporting and helping improve the health and well-being of our children and young people not only now but into the future.
Pupils will be actively involved in assessment for learning in all lessons to ensure they are clear and responsible for their achievement. This will enable the children to become independent learners, begin to recognise their strengths and areas for improvement and begin to recognise those of their peers.
Our pupils are given access to a wide variety of activities ranging from dance, trampolining and swimming to health related fitness, orienteering and other outdoor adventurous activities. It also includes all team games, including football, rugby, boccia and basketball so that everyone will experience the social aspects of being part of a team.
Pupils encounter units of activity, which allow opportunities to work as a team and solve problems, take part as individuals, set targets and take part in outdoor and adventurous activities.
Teachers create an environment that allows the learner to focus on learning.
Pupils become physically confident in a way, which supports their health and fitness.
Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
The establishment of self-esteem and confidence is also developed through participation in Physical Education and all achievement will be celebrated from school level through to national level so that all the young people experience success and feel valued.
Pupils will develop the skills, understanding and resilience to lead and maintain physically active lifestyles.
In core PE, all pupils achieve an Entry Level Qualification in Physical Education and receive an Entry Level 1, Entry Level 2 or Entry Level 3 award.
