Physical Education

PE Curriculum Overview


All topics will be delivered through Refereeing, Coaching and Performance pathways designed to both develop student’s confidence, self-esteem and trust and also to break down barriers to learning and participation thus giving all learners the opportunity to engage fully within the curriculum. A wide range of sports and activities are offered with students having a choice, giving them ownership of and investment in their program of learning.


Refereeing: Learners willdevelop understanding of rules and regulations so they can effectively and fairly officiate games and activities.

Coaching: Learners will develop understanding of sports and activities giving confidence to lead others in a coaching role.


Performance: Learners will acquire and develop skills and apply these in games situations.


As well as traditional sports and activities, students are also given opportunity to learn outside the classroom which further supports personal and social development. Regular visits to local community fitness centres and country parks enables a more exciting and engaging PE curriculum as well as promoting both community cohesion and integration whilst also developing the confidence, self-esteem which in turn promotes habitual lifelong participation in physical activity.
