Curriculum Statement of Intent

Our aim is to help our young people develop into adults with a lifelong commitment to sport and/or physical activity.

The aim of the curriculum is to provide students with a wide range of opportunities to develop as learners, leaders, competitors, team-mates, winners and losers.  Students will experience a Physical Education Curriculum that continually stresses the true value of sporting involvement and physical activity:

Key to this is developing every student’s social, physical and emotional wellbeing

  • Physical competence – Excellent sporting performance - realising potential through Performance and excellence. Striving to be the best you can be.

  • Health and wellbeing – In promoting health and positive lifestyles through artistic expression and physical activity, this being of equal importance at all levels of ability.

  • Social skills – Character and employability (personal and life skills)- In developing positive attitudes, encouraging a sense of responsibility to oneself and others as individuals, whilst generating a sense of fairness, honest involvement and outstanding behaviour
