Physical Education KS3

At Alde Valley we hope that our PE curriculum is both broad and balanced. This should enable each pupil to gain sufficient depth in an area of activity in order to achieve their own education potential. Furthermore we hope that in trying to ensure that each activity area is given sufficient attention, in relation to the others, it will enable all pupils to sample the richness of Physical Education.

Our aims are to develop:

  • A desire to engage in physical activity based upon experiences which have been enjoyable and successful
  • An understanding of the importance of maintaining an active lifestyle
  • An acquired competence in a range of physical skills
  • A knowledge and understanding of a range of activities which can be games based and/or creative
  • The opportunity to acquire the skills which enable all students to lead/choreograph or organize others into a sports related activity
  • To develop a range of interpersonal skills including co-operation/conduct/coping with challenges/and team building

Our curriculum includes:

  • Accurate Replication Activities including gymnastics, trampolining and dance
  • Developing Students Physical and Mental Capacity through invasion games and alternative sports
  • Developing Skills/Performance in swimming, gymnastics, games and athletics
  • Making and Applying Decisions in all sports and in competition
  • Making Informed Choices About Healthy, Active Lifestyle through fitness work and the base of all activities
  • Evaluating and Improving activity as a performer, an official and a coach
