PE Curriculum Intent

 

The Physical Education Department at All Saints is driven by the belief that physical activity is vital in the mental, physical and emotional development of all pupils. We therefore offer a wide and diverse curricular and extra-curricular program to our students. This diversity within the curriculum aims to stretch all pupils both physically and mentally, demanding both individual performances and cooperative collaboration. The extra curricular program aims to offer mass participation alongside excellence. We deliver this by running A, B and C teams in many sports throughout the year with an open door policy. Under pinning these academic activities and beliefs sits a strong catholic ethos best explained via scripture.

Philippians 4:13 " I can do all things through him who strengthens me."

All Saints offers a wide range of physical activities for all ages and abilities. School teams compete in district, county and national leagues and competitions in numerous sports including athletics, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders, rugby, swimming and tennis.

Individual students and teams have achieved success at both national and regional levels, particularly in basketball, football, netball, swimming and rowing.  A healthy extra-curricular programme exists for most popular major sports at lunchtime and after school club sessions for those students enjoying and wishing to develop in their chosen sports.

Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 students will take part in two hours of Physical Education per week. Key Stage 3 and 4 students follow structured autumn, winter, spring and summer programmes. These termly activities are drawn together via whole year group inter-form competitions. At Key Stage 4 and 5 the curriculum becomes more open and the students have a wider selection of activities also delivered in two hour slots.

The climatic event of the year is our annual school Sports Day, held at York University, this whole school event is also run with an inter-form theme.
