PE

Curriculum Intent  

We intend to ensure that the PE curriculum finds its way into the heart of every learner; be that through the competitive element of sport or as part of the recreational dimension. 

The PE curriculum aims to provide a release from the stresses of everyday life, including those stresses that are associated with mental health issues, and also seeks to push pupils to their maximum fitness levels for prolonged periods. This should happen through a wide range of physical activity and sport, with an extensive extracurricular offer to follow the unit of work.  The PE curriculum aims to reinforce and develop the following:

  • Build character, leadership, resilience, determination and a belief that our best is always good enough.
  • To be OUR BEST is what matters; not to be the best.

We also aim to provide opportunities for students to become physically confident in a way which support their health and fitness (NC, 2013)

The early years of the curriculum are designed to fit seamlessly into the later years, ensuring that the skills and knowledge are secured through the 5 years, culminating in outstanding pupil outcomes by the end.
