PE & Sport

“I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Michael Jordan


Enjoyment, exciting and fun is what we want all pupils to quote when asked about PE. Physical Education has to be recognised as the most important subject as without good physical health you cannot have good mental health. Without mental clarity, it is difficult to focus on the academic subjects.Physical Education and sport should be engaging, enjoyable and challenging. All pupils must have an equal provision of learning and activities, allowing maximum participation.

By incorporating the Olympic Values Respect, Excellence Friendship, and Paralympic Values Determination, Inspiration, Courage, Equality are used to theme the game situations or scenarios to embed SMSC and character education. The aim is for PE to increase children’s physical health, improve self-esteem, release feel good endorphins, release stress and develop life and social skills that will support the young person when dealing with their day to day lives.

Learning Journey

PE Learning Journey

Be Ambitious

Ambitious activities are those that take your regular curriculum further. They take the subjects you study in the classroom beyond that which your teacher has taught you or what you’ve done for home learning. For example, you may go into more depth on something you picked up in the classroom or learn about a new topic altogether. These activities are normally in the form of extra reading, but they can take many other forms, like watching videos online, downloading podcasts, attending lectures, visiting museums or entering academic competitions.

In the future, employers or universities will be interested to hear about what ambitious activities you have engaged in; they will be interested in what you have learnt and impressed by your efforts. Click here for further details.
