Subject Statement

 

Our Physical Education curriculum here at New Directions has been carefully designed to equip our pupils with the best opportunities to develop their group cohesion and team work skills, leadership qualities, skill acquisition and engagement through a nurturing and holistic programme with targets set to best improve our pupil’s self-efficacy. Our programme embeds sustainability, by building on fundamental life skills that will shape our pupils into well-rounded citizens, providing them with the best possible start in their young adult lives. The lessons are differentiated to cater for all pupils in an inclusive environment where pupils can feel safe and secure.

 

General Course Information

Students will experience a range of core PE sports covering Basketball, badminton, football and tennis where target setting and progression will be evidenced by focussing on the development of technical and tactical performance in sport for the first half of every lesson, and then practicing these skills in a game of the sport being covered each term. This year, we will also be embedding an alternative educational approach to our curriculum by having a key focus on Outdoor Adventurous Activities (OAA), where pupils will develop their skill acquisition in alternative land and water-based adventurous activities such as, kayaking, canoeing, rowing, sailing, bell boating and mountain biking. We also have access to the Fight for Peace boxing gym situated next to our school which is used by our nurture group on Wednesday afternoons, where pupils have the freedom to develop their boxing skills under the guidance of professional boxing coaches; pupils are also able to use the gym under the supervision of our teachers.

 

Assessment and Feedback

 

Pupils will be given guidance and feedback on performance throughout the academic year. Pupils will be encouraged to reflect upon their own performance and their fellow pupils’ performances after every lesson, which will develop their reflective practice and critical thinking abilities. Learning goals and progression will be evidenced in all lessons through exploring a range of different skills to best develop their abilities in each sport covered, which will be monitored by our teaching staff, in keeping with teaching standards and the National Curriculum Guidelines.
