Physical Education Curriculum Intent

 

‘Striving for Lifelong Participation in Sport and Physical Activity’

At Winterhill School, our aim is for students to have a ‘Lifelong Participation in Sport and Physical Activity.’ This is achieved through the delivery of high-quality Physical Education and Sport, ultimately, developing students' love for physical activity; this equips them with the skills and understanding to be active for the rest of their lives.  

It is our vision for ‘everyone to succeed’ and achieve their potential as well as to lead physically active lifestyles. We strive to inspire our students through fun and engaging Physical Education lessons that are enjoyable, challenging and accessible to all.  We want our students to be responsible and respectful team workers, who possess leadership skills and improve their confidence and resilience through sport. 

As students move through their journey at Winterhill School they will learn new skills, but also repeat and refine existing ones to become fully physically literate. Our examination courses are designed to develop student’s independence, develop effective research methods, work to deadlines and gain a real grounding in the theory behind sport. Alongside our curriculum runs an extensive extra-curricular programme that makes links with the local community and offers a range of competitive and non-competitive opportunities. Finally, there is more to Physical Education than just being able to play different sports. Students will learn the fundamental skills that will allow them to be able to contribute fully to not only school, but the wider community and prepare students for their future after Winterhill. 

Within the curriculum students will consider the fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law through officiating games whilst also developing mutual respect through working with others and tolerance of those with different views and opinions. Students will develop a sense of belonging, how they can contribute to a team, the need for organisation, for punctuality, for reliability and ultimately, they will learn that actions have consequences. These skills will help students move onto their next stage of learning, ensuring they are equipped to be the next leaders in education, sport and have a career in the sports industry.
