PE is a unique part of the curriculum that lends itself to developing physical, emotional and social qualities. As a consequence of full engagement in the school PE programme, the potential for students’ learning in other aspects of the curriculum is enhanced. PE also promotes a physically active and healthy lifestyle, both in and beyond school
Students at Churchill have 2 lessons of PE a week and are able to access a range of sporting activities. These are:
Health Related Exercise (HRE)
Invasion games such as netball, tag rugby, basketball and hockey
Striking and fielding – cricket and rounders
Net games – tennis, badminton, volleyball
Outdoor Adventurous Activities (OAA)
Fitness & Circuits
New Age Curling
Within these sports, students are taught the main skills for each sport before participating in any team games.
Another important aspect of the PE programme is opportunity to engage in therapeutic programmes, based on advice from the school’s Occupational Therapist, to improve students’ fine and gross motor skills.
