PE

PE Curriculum

Harris Invictus PE department will provide opportunities for students to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness whilst at school. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities will build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. Students will, therefore, have the opportunity to compete at a local and national level across a range of sports.

The aim at Key Stage 3 is to:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time.
  • engage in competitive sports and activities.
  • lead healthy, active lives.

Pupils will build on and embed the 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. Students will learn the different key roles within PE and build their confidence in key areas such as leadership and coaching.

Students will focus on what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work using analysis skills throughout every lesson.

Throughout Key Stage 3 students will:

  • use a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in direct competition
  • through team and individual games [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket,
  • football, hockey, netball, rounders, rugby and tennis.
  • develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports [for
  • example, athletics and gymnastics.
  • perform dances using advanced dance techniques within a range of dance styles and
  • forms.
  • 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.

It is important that all students develop the 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. Harris Invictus students will be given these opportunities through sports partnerships developed within the local community along with national sporting initiatives inspiring students to make an informed decision about their own healthy active lifestyle.
