Physical Education helps students understand the importance of having a healthy active lifestyle. They have the opportunity to exercise on a regular basis during curriculum time and are encouraged to take part in extra-curricular activities. Not only will they improve their fitness and performance but it will allow them to develop their social skills when working in a team.
Students are always at the forefront of everything we do and all staff show passion, commitment and care in providing them with the best opportunities possible. The aim is for them to enjoy taking part in a variety of activities and get into good habits from a young age. They are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning and develop the organisational skills needed to further their career when they leave the academy.
Students should build on and embed the physical development and skills learned in key stages 1 and 2 and become expert in their techniques across a broad range of activities. They will learn the fundamental skills and apply them in small sided games to understand the basic rules and regulations.
