Physical Education

Curriculum Intent

The aim of the Physical Education department at Crispin School is to:

 

Promote well-being, lifelong participation, and excellence in PE for all.

 

We strive to achieve this using the school values of aspiration, compassion and excellence.

Aspiration – it is of paramount importance to us that every student is healthy and happy. We aim to make the link between physical education and well-being; whether this is pursuing the best possible levels of competition or having the confidence to take part in a range of physical activities for enjoyment.

Compassion – by building positive, trusting and strong relationships with students, we take time to listen to and understand the aspirations and concerns of all students, which in turn supports student engagement in physical activity.

Excellence – by redefining excellence in PE as someone who:
has the courage to have a go at every task or activity
shows resilience to failure when learning new skills
helps others to make progress
shows independence as a learner
is willing to challenge themselves
demonstrates creativity during physical activities

We have made it such that every student is able to achieve excellence in PE, regardless of their current fitness levels and physical ability. We provide a range of activities from Handball to Football, from Dance to Rugby, from Gym to Badminton, to ensure that lessons are stimulating and engaging.

In addition to our ethos being underpinned by the school values, we also deliver a curriculum that develops the whole child. Our bespoke ACE framework improves a wide range of skills linking to aspiration, compassion and excellence, which we teach through the medium of physical activity and sport.

Curriculum Implementation

Core PE

Key Stage 3 classes throughout the PE department are mixed ability. Being labelled as "bottom set" for PE can have life-long implications for students' self-esteem and mind-set. Therefore, it does not align with our ethos of well-being, lifelong participation in physical activity and excellence for all. Through high quality teaching, we ensure that lessons stretch all students of all abilities.

At Key Stage 4, all students continue to do 2 Core PE lessons a fortnight. Students have the choice to be in a single-sex or mixed PE group.

BTEC Sport

In addition to Core PE, students have an option to take a BTEC Level 2 First Award in Sport.  This is a popular course that includes an on-line exam and 3 coursework based units. There is also the option to do GCSE Dance as an extra after school which students can join in Year 9.

Extra-Curricular Sport

We offer every child the opportunity to compete in inter-house competitions and offer a large number of students a chance to represent the school in a range of sports in inter-school, county and national competitions.  We have had success in recent years with Football, Rugby, Netball, Gymnastics, Equestrian, Trampolining and Handball.

The department is well equipped with extensive fields with athletics track, sports hall, gym, netball courts, gym facilities and shared use of a large astro pitch. There are sports for all interests and abilities and students are increasingly given more choice over what activities they do.
