The aims of Physical Education (PE) are:

1 – To develop confidence through a varied range of activity areas

2 – Provide students with the information needed in order to make healthy lifestyle choices and remain lifelong learners, specifically around Physical Activity

3 – Embed key theoretical knowledge of health and fitness within sport and physical activity in order to inform students to be able to train independently and create individualised training programmes

4 – Contribute to mental health and wellbeing in all students through effective promotion of physical activity and its benefits

5 – Develop and embed a culture of student leadership throughout the school to encourage and nurture responsibility and key life skills through the leadership of peers

6 – Provide a pathway for Key Stage 4 students to opt for a certified option route through Junior Sports Leaders Award and an ASDAN qualification in sport and fitness.

 7 – Where possible begin to implement extra-curricular opportunities with neighbouring schools both within mainstream and special school partners

8 – Provide regular links to outside facilities including gyms, outdoor education sites and local club sites to raise student’s awareness of such opportunities and develop confidence to join clubs and leisure providers outside of school through effective signposting.


Linked Whole School Department Aims –

1 – Strengthen links and partnership with key stakeholders across the county and regionally including clubs, national governing bodies, coaches, volunteers, county sports partnership and potential funding grants to enhance equipment and facilities.

2 – Develop a whole school (Primary & Secondary), Intra-School Competition structure by planning termly timetable drop down days where all students are involved, either performing, officiating or as part of a media team showcasing the day. To instill in the children a curiosity and understanding of events, places and people in a variety of times and environments. 

We aim to link these to our school values and overarching vision around our CREATE ethos: Confidence, Resilience, Effective Communication, Ambitious, Tolerant, Emotional Literacy.
