Work within the PE Department at KS 2 and 3 is designed to support, contribute to and complement
the aims of the school. The PE Department's primary aim is to provide opportunities to all pupils that promote
firstly their physical competence in a range of activities but also the pupil's mental, social, moral, cultural and
spiritual skills, enhancing the development of the whole pupil. For example, personal skills such as leadership,
teamwork and self-esteem will be focused on. The aims by which we hope this will be
achieved are outlined below:
covering as many activities as is possible rather than covering a few activities in depth
(as time constraints of less than 2 hours of PE for each pupil a week don't allow both to be included).
differences and capabilities, including the development of politeness, perseverance, initiative,
independence and self-esteem.
To enable pupils to work independently and as part of a team in varied activities, so as PE contributes
to the development of core skills such as communication by speech allowing pupils to become
familiar with principles and vocabulary related to PE.
In order to achieve these outlined aims a child-centred approach will be taken by the teachers rather
than a teacher-centred approach to ensure every pupil, irrespective of ability, gender, race, religion or
ethnicity has the opportunity to reach their full potential whilst learning to pursue success.
