Our philosophy is that PE should be delivered through mutual respect and teach pupils both practical and lifelong skills to enable them to lead a balanced healthy and active lifestyle.
We will facilitate this by striving to deliver the pupils with quality physical education in line with the National Curriculum. Our goal is to provide all pupils with challenging and stimulating learning experiences that install the ethos that hard work is the foundation of success and ensuring that all pupils gain a positive experience of PE. This positive experience may be through lesson time or in extra-curricular clubs or fixtures. We strive to develop pupils’ physical, social, moral and educational values through physical activity.
We are giving our pupils the opportunity to thrive in 3 key areas, Head, Hands and Heart:
Head – how they think about tasks, make decisions and process the tasks
Hands – the physical development and application of skills for each activity
Heart – this is the development of a pupil’s character, resilience, respect, effort and commitment
The college understands the importance of sport and exercise and therefore this is reflected in the number of PE lessons each week.
Throughout the year we arrange many different fixtures for the clubs in our extra-curricular programme. We host activities and take pupils to other schools to be able to compete in fixtures and tournaments.
Our vast extra-curricular programme enables pupils to build on what they have done in lessons and outside of school as well as empowering pupils to experience new activities for the first time that they may not have been able to do previously. Our commitment to each pupil is to encourage them to take part in at least one club across the year as well as represent their Form or the school in at least one sport.
