Subject Vision

“A broad, stimulating and enjoyable curriculum, that engages, motivates and challenges all pupils, giving them the knowledge, skills and understanding to grow as individuals, preparing them for the next stage in their lives

BroadThe subject explores a wide variety of team and individual sports, fitness training, and fitness testing. Students have two hours a week to develop their physical skills and abilities within each area to provide them with the opportunities to compete in local competitions at local, district, and at National level. This inclusive approach endeavors to encourage not only physical development, but also physical and social wellbeing and promote active participation and lifelong learning where each student achieves their full potential.

Stimulating – Within Physical Education, students are able to explore a variety of sports such as Football, Netball, Basketball, Rounder and Tennis to name a few. These games allow students to explore, develop and apply the skills techniques and tactics needed to be successful. Physical Education helps build all students’ self-esteem through developing teamwork and leadership.  It also permits students the opportunity to express themselves with confidence and lead to lifelong physical activity. This is not only as a participant, but also in roles as leaders and coaches with our Primary School and Football academy, but also in representing semiprofessional teams like Margate and Ramsgate.

Enjoyable  - Students get two activities every week and as they progress through the key stages they have the option to choose what activities they would like to participate and develop  skills and techniques in more depth. Finding an activity that they love sparks the passion for continued participation once students leave school. At St. George’s we pride ourselves on offering an extensive PE extra – Curricular programme. This ranges from the developing teamwork, supporting fitness, internal non-competitive games and activities. Up to competitive training and games that lead to local leagues, tournaments and Kent Cup competitions. Teams participate in local and national competitions and are Thanet champions in Netball and Futsal

Engaging –. We look at a range of teaching and coaching strategies that the student are taught by and also taught to use with their peers. Students lead warm ups, coach peers and coach lessons to develop their skill sets. Many students love competing in a large number of sports, activities and challenges we offer. This really allows them to select and apply skills in a competitive situation, use tactics and learn how to motivate each other as a team to achieve a desired outcome. Teachers have high expectations of students and offer appropriate levels of support and challenge to ensure that every pupil is able to succeed and that every pupil is stretched in each PE session

Motivating - We teach students how to set personal and team targets and review and adapt them as they make progress. Students are set on ability, so that every student can be challenged physically and stretched with like-minded and physically able students. Students have the opportunity to receive A logs for effort and progress, receive encouragement to join extra – curricular activities, represent their houses in Sporting competitions and team members are invited to the PE awards evening in the summer team..

Challenging –

Students are constantly challenged through practical activities and higher order questioning to ensure they achieve their full potential. We try to encourage a culture of challenge and achievement in our department. Every student’s steps in PE are forward, not backwards whatever their starting points or needs.  Extra-curricular sport also offers those a regular challenge to apply their skills and knowledge against all other school at the highest level.As a result students are fully equipped to further study sport at level 2 and 3

PROCEDURE IF YOUR CHILD IS UNABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THEIR PE LESSON

If your child is ill or injured they must bring a note in from home.
If your child is unable to participate due to a long term medical condition a medical certificate must be provided.  This should be updated termly.
When your child is ill or injured, they must bring in their PE kit and get changed.  They then will be involved within the lesson completing worksheets, officiating and carrying out peer assessments.

PROCEDURE IF A CHILD DOES NOT BRING IN KIT FOR THE LESSON

If your child forgets their kit, staff will provide the student with school kit.  If they refuse to wear this kit they will be given a St George’s after-school detention.
If they then do not engage in the lesson, behaviour support will be contacted if your child fails to follow these procedures and then they will be removed to the safe room.
