PE Curriculum Intent 

At The Abbey School we provide a varied and inclusive PE programme for our students to encourage all students to engage positively in some physical activity. We endeavour to provide age appropriate sport and encourage maximum participation.

We aim:

  • To provide pupils with the generic skills, knowledge and understanding they need to become physically literate, and at the same time develop the pupils socially through developing leadership and team work skills. 

  • To enthuse and inspire pupils to participate fully and develop a life-long love of physical activity, sport and exercise. 

  • To provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.

Year 8 & 9

At KS3 students will begin to participate in specific sports, learning the how to perform the skills that will enable them to become competent in that sport. 

The emphasis will be on pupils learning fundamental skills such as walking, running, throwing, catching and other skills associated to tactics and strategy. For example, knowing and implementing different ‘plays’ that have been discussed and strategically put into place to have successful outcomes. 

Students will be able to apply these key skills and techniques in isolation and in conditioned (competitive) practices throughout various sports using various principles.  Students will participate in different sports over a 2-year cycle.
