Alt Bridge A are crowned league champions
National Curriculum: Key Stages 3 and 4.
Purpose of Study
A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
Alt Bridge School is committed to providing the very best sporting opportunities and the Curriculum time to develop our student’s skills. We work in a formal sports partnership with our mainstream colleagues.
The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
• develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
• are physically active for sustained periods if time
• engage in competitive sports and activities
• lead healthy active lives
Throughout the year pupils will participate in units of work from the following areas: Swimming (Year 7) Fitness, Games, Gymnastics, Athletics and Outdoor Activities.
This will ensure that every pupil at Alt Bridge receives a wide and varied P.E experience. This will continue to develop your child’s skills in the activities they participate in. It will help develop their knowledge and understanding of the rules and how best to perform of the above mentioned activities. P.E will help your child to understand that Physical Education has long- term benefits both on a social and health related grounds and it can be a fun and positive experience.
Key Stage Courses
At Alt Bridge our Physical Education qualifications allow students to play to their strengths and gain dynamic skills for further education and a healthy future. Key Stage 4 pupils work towards gaining an Entry Level qualification in PE; it is a two year course which starts in Year 10. Pupils will take part in a wide range of activities and we will inspire each student to fulfil their potential in individual sports such as trampolining and athletics and team games.
It is a practical exam only and it is done in a calm and positive environment for all students to feel at ease and feel that they can show their skills they have acquired over the past two years. For further information on the P.E qualification please
