STATEMENT OF INTENT FOR PHYSICAL EDUCATION
Our Schools Vision and Values
To identify and meet individual learning needs through a nurturing environment.
• To provide appropriate high quality learning opportunities for all.
• To develop practice partnership working with all stakeholders.
• To create an environment where opinions and views are respected and appreciated.
• To encourage everyone to develop their talents to enable them to take up their rightful place in their communities.
We believe in a learning community where everyone feels valued, included and achieves.
PE is a vital part of school life and ultimately children’s future well-being.
It is therefore our intent to provide an inclusive, broad and balanced PE curriculum that ensures ALL children will benefit, whether through enhancing existing skills, learning new skills or being introduced to new sports, clubs, teams and organisations.
It is our intent to ensure children understand the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and to equip them with the tools to do so through health and well-being education.
Children must understand how to take care of themselves both physically and mentally in order to be successful as adults.
Beyond merely a subject, we believe that participation in sporting activity is a key element of developing a school in which pupils are proud of the community in which they belong.
Therefore, great emphasis is placed upon additional sporting opportunities beyond the lesson within the cross curricular sections such as social and communication, carousel and additional opportunities for students to participate in competitions.
We believe this links directly with our school’s values of TEAMWORK and is another way in which we can positively engage with our local community and be active citizens within it.
The Key stage 3 timetable has been determined to provide the students the opportunity to participate in both team and individual sports, however a double session per week that has been provided allows students to engage in the full curriculum of sports per term as determined by the PE teacher on site.
After several discussions with key stage 3 teaching staff, a combination of team and individual sports have been assigned to the term.
In order to meet the government recommendations for physical education, there is also embedded human biology teachings in the science lessons, which lay foundations of learning in preparation for the GCSE theory syllabus in PE.

In key stage 4, 1 double practical / theory session and 1 optional revision session allows the guided learning hours to be met over the 2 year course.
Students have the opportunity for homework as well.

Mock exams will be completed at Easter to analyse gaps in learning prior to the GCSE exams over the summer.
The implementation of this curriculum ensures that when children leave Brownhill Learning Community, they are principled and understanding of their own personal health, enjoy the concept of sports participation and positive competitiveness.
The students will have had the opportunity to participate and engage in an array of sports and physical training opportunities to ensure that all young people of Brownhill meet the guidance of the NHS of being healthy.
