Physical Education at KS3 enables pupils to participate in a wide range of sports and achieve a variety of AQA unit awards. Throughout the delivery of Physical Education there is a promotion of healthy living and encouragement to lead a healthy lifestyle. Awareness of the benefits of healthy living are delivered through a blocked programme of health related exercise.
We now offer the 21st Century Legacy, Be the Best you can Be Programme and this is delivered within some PE lessons. The aim of the programme is to provide our pupils with the opportunity to develop their physical, mental, social/emotional and spiritual way of being and to help them recognise steps which they can take to enhance their performance in each area.
Each year we sign up to Sky Sports Living for Sport programme. Pupils get regular visits from our athlete mentor, former inline skating world champion Jenna Downing. The emphasis is on using six keys to achieve success in their learning journey.
