Physical Education allows pupils to participate in a variety of different sporting activities. These can be team or individual activities which allow pupils to develop skills in isolation then transfer them to competitive situations. Pupils will enhance their knowledge and understanding of tactics and rules and get the opportunity to perform the roles of coaches and officials. Pupils develop self-esteem, confidence, social interaction through teamwork, discipline and respect.
DEEP Curriculum Overview
Physical Education aims to develop the physical, social and emotional well-being of our pupils within a Christian learning environment. In lower school, pupils focus on improving their well-being through engaging in a broad spectrum of sports and physical activities in line with our DEEP curriculum. Development of physical literacy is key, with pupils DEEPENING both individual and teamwork skills. In upper school, pupils continue to study core PE which supports their well-being and health. In addition, pupils can opt to study GCSE PE which explores more DEEPLY the factors that underpin physical activity and sport, using this knowledge and understanding to improve performance. Alternatively, pupils can opt to study the vocational OCR Sport which considers contemporary issues in sport and the relationship between sport and the media to developing the practical skills essential for progression into the sports industry.
