The Churchill PE curriculum aims to promote a healthy active lifestyle, improve mental wellbeing, and improve our children’s fundamental movement skills. By physically educating our students, our curriculum provides the opportunity for children to improve a wide range of key life skills including resilience, teamwork, and communication across all key stages. As the children progress throughout the school, the curriculum is designed to cover all areas of the national curriculum as well as alternative curriculum activities:
OAA (outdoor and adventurous activities)
Striking and fielding
These areas are adapted and delivered in a bespoke way to suit the needs of our learners. Our curriculum aims to provide every child with opportunities to work with specialists, coaches and be provided with a wide range of experiences. All children are encouraged to participate in some form of competitive sport either through external competitions with other local schools or internally. The PE curriculum is designed to encourage children to be active and support their development in key attributes to becoming independent adults.
The national curriculum, which underpins the Churchill curriculum for physical education, aims to ensure that all pupils:
develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
are physically active for sustained periods of time
engage in competitive sports and activities
lead healthy, active lives
develop their resilience, confidence and independence, so that they can contribute positively to the life of the school and their wider environment
Students at Churchill now have the exciting opportunity to participate in GCSE PE (OCR exam board) starting in class 4. A GCSE in Physical Education equips students with the knowledge, understanding and skills to develop their own performance in sport. They will also develop their understanding of socio-cultural influences on participation in sport, and the benefits of physical activity to health, fitness and well-being supporting our curriculum intent to allow students to thrive and develop as healthy individuals.
Studying Physical Education enables students to learn the skills and gain the confidence to access a wide range of careers including:
