Physical Education at Greatfields School is a crucial part of our identity and aims to encourage all pupils to lead healthy, active lifestyles. In our school, we offer pupils a broad and varied curriculum which develops our pupil’s knowledge, skills and understanding in a range of sports and physical activities. Throughout the school year, our students will cover invasion games, striking and fielding, net and wall games, athletics and health related fitness. In addition to this, at key stage 4 we offer GCSE PE as an academic qualification and OCR Sports Studies as a vocational qualification to further their knowledge within our subject. These qualifications set the foundation for students to progress into Key Stage 5, where we offer the Level 3 National Extended Diploma in Sport (see the link to the Physical Education curriculum plan below). This programme of study provides progressive pathways to life beyond Greatfields.
Our school’s enrichment programme provides opportunities for all of our students to engage in a variety of sports throughout the year. In addition to this, we enter both local and regional competitions for a range of sports. This includes Football, Basketball, Athletics, Netball, Handball, Rugby, Cricket, Badminton and Cross Country. Competitive sport endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also instil a sense of fair play, cooperation and school value.
We deliver high quality, fun lessons that allow our pupils to increase in confidence, work collaboratively, develop a positive growth mindset and foster their independence. As a PE department, we use our passion, breadth of knowledge and expertise to teach inclusive, engaging lessons that inspires pupils to have a lifelong love for sport.
