Core PE Intent Statement
PE at Emmanuel provides opportunity for balanced competition through a broad curriculum. We aim to develop whole child through an enjoyment of sport, respect for ourselves and others whilst building resilience in a safe and respectful learning environment. We encourage development of leadership skills to promote confidence. All learners are given the opportunity to develop sports specific skill and knowledge to reach their full potential; whilst developing an understanding of leading healthy, active lifestyles.
Our curriculum represents the diversity of our students by providing opportunity for all students to access a broad range of sporting activities in both performance and examination capacities within a supportive and inclusive environment. In which all students have a clear pathway to achieve success within the curriculum and beyond. This is achieved by preparing all learners so that they may study sport related courses in the future. Within the Physical Education department we aim to provide all students with the wisdom to make informed decisions that will enable them to make the best progress possible. We also encourage the students to have hope and be resilient when times become challenging. We endeavour to make strong links within the community and encourage students to be proud to represent both their school and local clubs and teams through sport. Finally, we expect all students to show dignity when performing or representing the school. We encourage a challenging but supportive environment which is inclusive of all students. We believe in creating an enjoyable yet challenging learning environment, where high expectations are sustained and all learning opportunities are maximised.
