The aim of the PE Department is to provide a balanced curriculum of team and individual activities which allows you to:
Gain understanding of your own physical ability and to provide experiences which help to promote your character
Develop a love of sport and a healthy, active lifestyle
Develop leadership skills in lessons
Learn from each other in small group contexts
Try a variety of activities
Be challenged at all levels of ability and develop physical skills as a result
Define clear progressions for those wanting to study PE at KS4 and 5 and guidance for those who may seek a career in sport
You are placed in ability bands at the beginning of each year. We believe that this leads to pupils who are more motivated and challenged at the correct level. You can be moved throughout the year if you score highly in assessments. You may be placed in different groups for different activities if you show promise in that area.
