Physical Education (PE)

PE is taught in mixed ability groups following the National Curriculum at Key Stages 2 and 3. All pupils receive 4 hours of PE every two weeks delivered by PE specialists. All pupils are encouraged to improve their health and fitness, responsibility towards others, awareness of personal safety and the safety of others, to enjoy school sport at their own level and ultimately make progress and improve performance.

Intent
 

We aim to offer a broad, balanced and progressive programme of study to enable all pupils to develop physically, socially, cognitively and emotionally.

Through the curriculum and extra-curricular provision the concepts of accurate replication, performing safely and effectively, outwitting opponents and performing at maximum levels underpin all learning. We offer opportunities for pupils to shine regardless of ability or experience.

 

KEY STAGE 2

  • To enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other using a range of fundamental skills.
  • To continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and series of movements.
  • To develop an understanding of how to improve in different activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise success.

KEY STAGE 3

  • To move all pupils between the continuum of competent – confident – expert in a variety of activities.
  • To develop technique and improve performance.
  • Use tactics and strategies to overcome opponents.
  • Understand the long term health benefits of PE and sport.
  • Understand what makes a performance effective.

Extra-Curricular Opportunities

The extra-curricular programme is extensive and aims to offer something for everyone. Clubs and teams are run at lunchtime and we have regular fixtures. Our sports teams and individuals enjoy success at local, regional and national levels. As part of the SWSSA, we regularly participate in School Games inclusion events such as NAK and Boccia.

The successful House System continues to flourish across a range of sporting activities such as inter-house football, netball, tri pair’s rugby, softball and rounders. This enables more pupils to experience competition and helps raise the standard of our school teams.

In Year 8, pupils are offered the opportunity to become a Young Leader. This very popular and oversubscribed nationally recognised qualification teaches the successful applicants the importance of organisation, communication, teamwork and respect delivered through the medium of sport.

Pupils are given the opportunity to play sport in Spain and Gibraltar on the Sports Tour which takes place every two years. Netball and rugby teams play fixtures against Spanish schools, clubs and international schools.
