Physical Education (Core)

During Key Stage 4 pupils tackle complex and demanding activities, applying their knowledge of skills, techniques and effective performance.  They will be encouraged to get involved in physical activity that is mainly focused on competing or performing, promoting health and well-being, or developing personal fitness.

They also decideon roles that suit them best, including performing, coaching, choreographing, leading and officiating.  The view they have of their skillfulness and physical competence gives them the confidence to get in involved in exercise and activity out of school and in later life.
