P.E. Intent Statement
The primary aim of P.E. at Abbey Park is to give students an opportunity to experience a variety of sports and activities, while developing their knowledge, ability and confidence in each.
Our aim is to nourish each student’s sporting development so that they can demonstrate a level of competence that allows them to take part in a full-scale competitive situation during their years at Abbey Park.
As students’ progress through KS3 they will have the opportunity to take part in a full range of sports, from football to gymnastics, netball to orienteering, badminton to basketball, to name just a few. We believe it is imperative that students have the opportunity to experience an array of sports while at school, and we are fortunate that our outstanding facilities allow us to accommodate such a broad and balanced curriculum.
All students at Abbey Park continue with two hours of P.E. a week, even if they do not take one of our examination P.E. courses. The overarching focus of P.E. at KS4 is on high activity levels and enjoyment. We are aware of our responsibility in giving students the opportunity to be physically active, as we recognise the positive impact it has on student’s physical and mental health.
For those students looking to further develop their knowledge and understanding of physical education, we offer GCSE PE and BTEC First in Sport as options at KS4.
