Physical Education and Sports

Physical Education offers opportunities for children to:

  • become skilful and intelligent performers;
  • acquire and develop skills, performing with increasing physical competence and confidence, in a range of physical activities and contexts;
  • learn how to select and apply skills, tactics and compositional ideas to suit activities that need different approaches and ways of thinking;
  • develop their ideas in a creative way;
  • set targets for themselves and compete against others, individually and as team members;
  • understand what it takes to persevere, succeed and acknowledge others' success;
  • respond to a variety of challenges in a range of physical contexts and environments;
  • take the initiative, lead activity and focus on improving aspects of their own performance;
  • discover their own aptitudes and preferences for different activities;
  • make informed decisions about the importance of exercise in their lives;
  • develop positive attitudes to participation in physical activity. 

Physical Education is delivered through activities that are progressive, challenging and enjoyable. They lead to achievement and success, which in turn promotes an enhanced sense of self-worth and confidence.

Teaching and learning strategies are designed to stimulate, enthuse and enable students to gain personal satisfaction from their participation. They are guided into recognising, appreciating, reaching and then extending their physical potential. This involves teachers matching tasks to the individual needs of every student within a productive learning environment.

Physical Education involves knowledge, skills and understanding. Through experimentation, repeated practice, evaluation and skill refinement students will learn a fundamental level of body control, tactical awareness, compositional ideas, and a basic understanding for the importance of fitness and health.

The expectations of students at the end of each unit is that they are working towards, achieving or exceeding the English National Curriculum levels of attainment.
