Core PE

Years 7-11


Curriculum Modules

What will my child be learning?

How do I support my child?


Within each module students will be expected to:

●  Acquire and developing skills.

●  Make and apply decisions.

●  Develop a physical and mental capacity.

●  Evaluate and improve performance and understanding.

●  Make informed choices about active, healthy lifestyles.

Your child must bring their school PE kit to every lesson.

If they cannot actively participate due to injury or illness they are still required to bring their kit and they require a note from a parent/guardian explaining the reason. Notes will not be accepted via text message on the student’s phone. They require kit as they may be asked where appropriate to participate passively in the lesson (e.g. coaching or analysis of another student’s performance work, etc).

We will not expect those students who will cause themselves further injury to get changed.

Notes for students with ‘colds’, ‘periods’ and ‘hay fever’ will not be accepted without a doctor’s note and the PE teacher will expect them to take part in lesson

Hair must be tied back and nails must be an appropriate length to participate in all physical activities.

Practice skills with them at home.

Encourage them to participate in extra-curricular clubs/teams.

Encourage them to lead a healthy active lifestyle by getting them involved in physical activity outside of school and advising them on what foods/drinks are good/bad for them.

If you get the opportunity, take them to watch elite level sport and give them an opportunity to watch a role model, and to inspire them to be like them
