PE at St Joseph’s R.C. Middle School

  • Intention

    At St Joseph’s we aim for our pupils to achieve the following through our PE Curriculum;

    • To be physically active.
    • To engage in activities that develop cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, strength and stamina.
    • To understand the importance of being fit and healthy through maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
    • To engage in competitive sporting opportunities.
    • To experience and develop skills and understanding of a broad range of physical activities.

    The intent of the PE curriculum adheres to the aims of the National Curriculum. In addition, we aim for our pupils to develop the following life skills;

    • To develop leadership skills.
    • To develop collaboration and cooperation with other students.
    • To develop the ability to work with others as part of a team and to recognise the strengths of others and to celebrate these strengths.
  • Implementation
    • PE is taught at St Joseph’s in 2 separate lessons per week.
    • The curriculum is delivered to allow all pupils to access the full National Curriculum.
    • The lessons are differentiated to meet the needs of all pupils.
    • The curriculum is designed to allow for progression through the 4 years that students are at St Joseph’s allowing for opportunities for pupils to develop previous skills and knowledge.
    • There are opportunities to revisit and recap on previous learning to allow for pupils to consolidate their skills, knowledge and understanding.
    • All teachers, that teach PE, have clear expectations of pupil performance levels and through regular assessment interventions are implemented where appropriate.
  • Impact
    • The vast majority of pupils achieve or exceed age related expectations in PE.
    • Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
    • Pupils are well prepared for the next stage of their education.
    • Pupils gain a lifelong understanding of the importance of being physically active and as a result continue to lead physically active lives long after leaving St Joseph’s.
