Physical Education

During Key stage 3 pupils will build on and embed their physical development and skills learned in key stages 1 and 2, become more competent, confident and expert in their techniques, and apply them across different sports and physical activities. They will understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work. Pupils will develop their confidence and interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school and in later life, and understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.

Pupils will be taught to:

  • use a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in direct competition through team and individual games.

  • develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports.

  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activities which present intellectual and physical challenges and be encouraged to work in a team, building on trust and developing skills to solve problems, either individually or as a group

  • analyse their performances compared to previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best

  • take part in competitive sports and activities outside school through community links or sports clubs.
