Throughout KS3 our student’s follow a broad and balanced programme of study in Physical Education. With skills and group cohesion at the core of all games based lessons and fitness and healthy well being a the forefront of fitness schemes of work.
Student’s participate in a different area of our curriculum each half term. The disciplines which comprise our year 7 and 8 curriculums are: Rugby League, Football, Athletics, Fitness, Table Tennis, Basketball and Badminton. Additionally, girls will complete a scheme of work in Netball.
Development of core and advanced skills, along with collaborative engagement are the focuses of the aforementioned schemes of work. Furthermore, resilience is challenged wherever possible. Namely through the practice of problem solving.
