PE and Dance lessons are taught through a variety of teaching styles to best find the way to engage each individual. We are an inclusive department who differentiate their planning to encompass students across the whole ability range, including students with a range of physical disabilities. We deliver a programme of practical activities that aim to develop each individual from their original baseline assessment level to a level 5+ within key stage 3 and on towards level 8 and Exceptional Performance during key stage 4.
In year 9 students are able to opt for specific PE, Sport and Dance courses which they will follow in years 10 and 11, in addition to their core PE and Dance entitlement.
While we do not regularly set homework for non-examination based lessons, students will be encouraged to extend their learning through regular participation in: out-of-hours clubs, daily physical activity opportunities and in a sports leadership capacity.
