School Closure

The school is currently closed for the majority of students due to the national Covid-19 response.

P.E.

We aim to develop pupils’ competence and confidence to take part in a range of physical activities that become a central part of their lives, both in and out of school.

 

Our high-quality PE curriculum enables pupils to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activity. They develop a wide range of skills and the ability to use tactics, strategies and compositional ideas to perform successfully. When they are performing, they think about what they are doing, analyse the situation and make decisions. They also reflect on their own and others’ performances and find ways to improve them. As a result, they develop the confidence to take part in different physical activities and learn about the value of healthy, active lifestyles. Discovering what they like to do, what their aptitudes are at school, and how and where to get involved in physical activity helps them make informed choices about lifelong physical activity.


PE helps pupils develop personally and socially. They work as individuals, in groups and in teams, developing concepts of fairness and of personal and social responsibility. They take on different roles and responsibilities, including leadership, coaching and officiating. Through the range of experiences that PE offers, they learn how to be effective in competitive, creative and challenging situations.

How does P.E.embed cross curriculum literacy skills?

  • When evaluating dance/gym routines students are encouraged to use of complex sentences 
  • Students are encouraged to use of key activity specific vocabulary (word posters)
  • Use of F.U.T. (Follow up tasks) which are written into students planners to identify areas for future development

 

How does P.E. embed cross curriculum numeracy skills?

  • Within PE lessons we identify appropriate moments to challenge students numeracy skills for example:
  • Estimation – Eg. Marking out a 10x10m playing area
  • Adding/Subtracting/multiplying/dividing – Eg. 24 in a group and we want 4 teams, how many in each team?
  • Use of symmetry/angles/patterns in gymnastics and dance.
  • Scoring
  • Time Keeping 

 

How does P.E. link to SMSC and PLTS?
