The school’s vision is modelled within the PE curriculum, where we believe in inclusive education for all.

We believe that all of our students deserve a curriculum that meets their differing needs and enables them to fulfil their unique potential.

We want our students to be successful members of our community and to maximise their life opportunities. It is the intention of our curriculum to enable this.


Core Values across the curriculum PE

Updated: 17/01/2023 744 KB

Our curriculum intent is:

  • Coherently plan and sequence our curriculum to meet the unique needs of all of our learners.
  • Offer a breadth of activities at KS3 that is sequential in leading to study GCSE PE at KS4; all students will be stretched and challenged over 5 years, taking into account different starting points.
  • Develop effective literacy and numeracy skills through the use of digital technology, creating learners who are confident and competent readers, writers and speakers, with essential analytical skills needed for subject success and future life.
  • Embed a range of wider opportunities and experiences for all, to ensure our learners have an educational experience that is rich and varied.
  • Encompass the whole school core values through the PE curriculum.

As a result, the PE curriculum will:

  • Ensure that our students have a broad range of knowledge and understanding of the core skills needed in a varied range of sports.
  • Ensure pupils have a depth of knowledge and understanding that enables them to perform with confidence and discuss key concepts and values associated with PE.
  • Nurture literacy skills by developing key terminology to enable pupils to speak with confidence about the sport and their performance.
  • Ensure pupils at KS3 are prepared to make informed decisions about PE at KS4 by developing knowledge of the key theoretical topics (Musculoskeletal and Cardiorespiratory systems).
  • Develop physical literacy and model the core values to give our students the motivation, confidence and physical competence to maintain physical activity at an individual appropriate level throughout life.
  • Develop digital skills to remove all barriers to learning so that all students achieve regardless of their role in the lesson and improve confidence in PE. Ensure pupils are challenged no matter what their starting point by developing their leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative and communication skills and enhancing this by giving them the opportunity to be a sports leader.
  • Ensure that our students develop a passion for PE and understand the multiple important benefits to having a depth of knowledge of physical education - and how this links to their wider education
