PE

Creating life-long participants in physical activity who develop skills and attributes in order to have a healthy lifestyle

PE vision statement

 

Acland Burghley School believes that Physical Education and school sport contributes to the totality of the educational experience of pupils. Physical, personal, social, moral, spiritually, culturally and emotional development are enhanced by the movement experiences that make up our broad and balanced Physical Education curriculum. In addition, expression, communication, appreciation and understanding are developed. Physical Education provides a range of experiences that form the basis for lifelong sporting and recreational activity which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident and develop resilience in a way which supports their health, fitness, mental health and well-being. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

Lessons and schemes/units of work are structured to allow students the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills within a physical education environment. The learning environment is appropriate to the age, maturity and skill level of the students. Expectations are high but realistic in terms of achievement, discipline, behaviour and dress. The atmosphere of lessons is such that students gain confidence in physical activity in a safe environment where student success is positively reinforced.

Students will regularly work in group situations. In many areas the emphasis is on competition, where students are encouraged to be cooperative and tolerant of each other in order to achieve their goal. In all situations empathy is paramount where students cater to the needs of their peers. Through performance, students will be encouraged to recognise the strengths and weaknesses of themselves and others.

As students’ progress through the school they will be encouraged to adopt a positive attitude to activity and healthy living, motivating them to fulfil their sporting potential both within the school and through leisure facilities and clubs in the local community. As students enter Year 10 and 11 they are expected to take an active role in their physical education by choosing from various options and courses provided in the curriculum.
