Cultural Capital

The design of the PE curriculum has the purpose of providing opportunities for students to experience success; to excel; experience competition; to build character; to develop values of fairness and respect (to value themselves and others).

Across all key stages, students are encouraged to be independent thinkers and team players.  Mental skills and attributes such as confidence, memory, commitment and concentration are all encouraged through practice and performance.  Students are encouraged to attend extra-curricular clubs which run weekly at both lunch and after school.  Clubs are taught as mixed ability and give the opportunity for students to further extend their learning.  Representative teams give the students an opportunity to excel in chosen sports.  

An Equitable Curriculum - Removing Barriers to Learning

The PE curriculum provides a mix and breadth of activities/sports. Competitive and non-competitive sports are taught.  Activities range across net games/ ball games /invasion games /fitness based activities/gymnastic and athletics. With a balance of activities all student strengths have opportunity to be show cased. To further develop student’s skillset, they have the opportunity to take on the roles of official or coach.
