The aim of the PE curriculum at Ashton Park:

Being physically active leads to good physical health and mental well-being. The Ashton Park PE curriculum will develop healthy, curious and active sportspeople by providing opportunities to educate minds, develop healthy bodies and promote positive attitudes towards lifetime physical activity, fitness and sports performance.

Through our curriculum students will develop the four key characteristics of healthy, curious and active sportspeople:

Knowledgeable Actively engaged Independent Confident
  • Students will know about health and their bodies and how each type of physical activity benefits them
  • Students will know the different types of activity, the rules of each and how to apply tactics
  • Participation in different roles such as coach, official, manager, leader
  • Students will be focussed and actively listening
  • Physically active in the tasks
  • Answering questions, asking questions and having discussions with partners about the task
  • Everyone should enjoy their learning through fun activities
  • Motivated students who are reflective of their own performance and resilient to try again
  • Students who use their initiative to set up and get started on the task
  • Students who take on leadership roles
  • No fear of mistakes. Pupils do get physically involved and keep trying
  • Leaders in the lessons
  • Students can take on other roles in lessons and provide support to their peers.

 

The structure of the PE curriculum at Ashton Park:

Our curriculum is structured around key sports each term. Through these sports students will develop as  healthy, curious and active sportspeople.  Most of the sports we teach are taught in each of the three years allowing them to develop their knowledge and understanding of each - Netball, Rugby, Football, Athletics, Tennis, Gymnastics, Dance. There are also some sports that do not repeat that we have included to give our students the widest experience of sports and help them all develop as healthy, curious and active sportspeople.

Our lessons are structured around three key areas that allow our students to become knowledgeable, actively engaged, independent and confident:

  • The Health Zone - where we teach students about the health related theme relevant for that sport/activity and year group
  • The Skills Zone - where we teach the skills relevant for that sport/activity and year group
  • The Games Zone - where we teach students about co-operative and competitive situations / scenarios / tactics / performance
