Curriculum Intent

Physical activity is a critical life-skill which will impact on an individual’s health and well-being. Our curriculum is designed around highquality experiences in a varied and broad spectrum of physical activity and sport. Students are encouraged to find an activity that engages, challenges and inspires them to participate in a ‘life-long’ active pursuit. Students experience a variety of roles such as official, coach & choreographer and are given the opportunity to develop their Leadership skills through the Sports Leader Award. As our student’s progress, they should be able to participate, organise, lead active learning challenges and be confident in accessing physical activity outside of school


Our aim is to provide a supportive atmosphere, promoting and enhancing students’ experiences and enthusiasm for physical activity. Students should experience & develop their core skills & fitness which apply across the range of activities.
