PECurriculum

Introduction

We believe that every student should be entitled to high quality teaching and learning and have the opportunity to take part in a curriculum with wide range of activities that become a central part of their Academy life. The PE department offers excellent facilitates that means we are able to offer a broad and balanced curriculum for our learners. Outside of lessons the department runs an extensive club and fixture programme which is well attended by our students. Throughout the year we also bring in coaches and instructors to run specialist coaching programmes and have established good links with outside clubs and the wider community. Our high-quality PE curriculum enables all students the opportunity to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activity. Our students develop a wide range of skills and the ability to use tactics, strategies and communication skills to perform successfully. They also reflect on their own and others’ performances and find ways to improve them.

As P.E. and Sport is an important subject within the Academy we also run examination courses in KS4 and KS5 to suit the needs of all of our learners. These include: GCSE PE, BTEC PE (Level 2 and Level 3), A Level PE. At Key Stage 5 we also offer students the opportunity to take part the higher sports leader award. Being part of the Ormiston chain of academies means that the PE department also works closely with the Youth Sports Trust on initiatives and new ideas within the world of Physical Education which will directly benefit our learners.
