Is this the right course for me?
Our high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
Our physical education curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:
• develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
• are physically active for sustained periods of time
• engage in competitive sports and activities
• lead healthy, active lives.
Pupils build on and embed the physical development and skills learned in key stages 1 and 2 to become more competent, confident and expert in their techniques, and apply them across different sports and physical activities. They understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work. They develop the confidence and interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school and in later life, and understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.
Students are taught to:
• use a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in direct competition through team and individual games
Sports Covered: Football, Futsal, Netball, Rugby, Volleyball, Handball, Basketball, Rounders, Cricket, Table Tennis and Tennis.
• develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports

How to support your child
We run extra-curricular clubs in a wide range of sports and activities so enabling them to attend these clubs will allow your child to progress further and attain higher levels within P.E. Also encouraging them to join teams outside of school will help them to improve performance too.
Your son/daughter should be playing competitive sport either in or outside of school to gain the highest possible grades in this section.
If they play at a high level it would be wise for you to gain video evidence and give it to the school ahead of moderation. Guidelines for this are in the specification and if you need any further help please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
