The Physical Education deploys a vibrant, charismatic teaching and learning ethos.
We work conscientiously to enable that all areas of the National Curriculum are strategically followed and delivered to a high standard. We aspire to lead enjoyable and differentiated lessons in order to enhance each student’s provision of physical education and activity. We expect every student to participate in every lesson, bringing kit and the attitude to get as much from lessons as possible. We provide opportunities for every student to shine - whether it be through participation, officiating or leadership.
Key Stage 3
We cover a variety of sports and activities in line with the National Curriculum including; outwitting an opponent as in games activities, accurate replication of actions, phrases and sequences, as in gymnastic activities, exploring and communicating ideas, concepts and emotions, as in dance activities, performing at maximum levels in relation to speed, height, distance, strength or accuracy, as in athletic activities, identifying and solving problems to overcome challenges of an adventurous nature, as in life saving and personal survival in swimming and outdoor activities and exercising safely and effectively to improve health and wellbeing, as in fitness and health activities.
Key Stage 4
It is in Key Stage 4 where the students have a more significant role to play within their P.E. curriculum, through the general organisation, coaching, officiating, and structuring of lessons. In year 10 we offer the Junior Sports Leadership Award, following which pupils are encouraged to help out at primary school events and clubs on a regular basis. Extra curricular clubs are again offered to in football, rugby league, gymnastics, fitness, netball, rounders, cricket, badminton, dance and trampolining.
We offer a thriving GCSE P.E. course for students in Key Stage 4. The 2 year course consists of 2 further hours of P.E lessons every week, one of which is practical and the other theoretical, focusing on the physiological and sociological elements of the sporting world and more importantly the human body.
We aim to provide as many opportunities for intra school sport as possible. These take place within lessons, during lunch time activities and sports days.
We also offer a number of extra-curricular clubs including boys/girls football, netball, rounders, rugby league, cricket, badminton, basketball, fitness, trampolining, athletics and dance. We aim to put teams out in as many sports as possible, entering local leagues and sports Partnership competitions in activities that are less traditional, such as Volleyball.
In addition, we aim to offer a variety of opportunities which allow students to widen their experience and reward pupils who have shown an outstanding level of effort and attainment in the subject. This includes ski trips, football trips, ice skating trips...to name a few!
