PE

In Physical Education at HAP, we intend to inspire our students to engage in healthy and active lifestyles that they will continue to pursue throughout their lives.

Our broad and balanced curriculum provides all students with the opportunity to engage with a mixture of team and individual sports, as well as the chance to partake in activities that they would normally not have access to.

In Key Stage 3, we focus on mastering skills and tactics across a range of different sports and activities and seek to provide all students with a platform upon which they can challenge themselves, whether by representing the academy against other schools or pitting themselves against their peers in inter faculty events. 

Our Key Stage 4 curriculum is designed around developing the students analytical and evaluative skills as they move towards gaining a recognised PE-based qualification that will support them through their chosen career path.

We offer a range of enrichment programmes designed to allow our students to express themselves and develop their skills in ever-changing circumstances. These programmes include leadership programmes like Project Rugby, self-fulfilment programmes like Football Beyond Boarders, and elite performance programmes with Greenhouse Basketball.


Implementation

Having a curriculum that is as broad as we have is challenging, but extremely rewarding. Students can call upon prior learning in sports and activities and apply the skills and tactics learned in ever-changing and demanding situations.

For this to be successful significant skill is required from both pupil and teacher alike, and the level of subject knowledge and patience required is significant from both parties. A high degree of collaboration is required, with the sharing of good practice from experienced practitioners essential. Modelling, evaluation and reinforcement are at the centre of such a broad curriculum, with skilful management of the key principles of student leadership to ensure all pupils are challenged and considered in all lessons.

The diverse nature of the activities on offer has allowed pupils to recognised not only their strength but also possible new horizons and avenues for pleasure and enjoyment. Effect use of non-curriculum hours to promote sports like Cheerleading, Table Tennis and Tennis, not normally part of the taught curriculum, is another example of how pupils skill acquisition and transfer of skills has been tested along with developing a passion to be healthy.


Impact

The key Stage 3 curriculum has proved fruitful in allowing our students to engage with a greater breadth of sports, including a number that are not game based, such as Dance, Gymnastics, Athletics and Health Related Fitness.

This has allowed all our students to find an area of the curriculum that appeals to them and helps to promote a positive attitude towards having an on-going healthy and active lifestyle. Many students have been able to engage with physical activity outside of curriculum times with further opportunities that have been bred from the offer we have in place. Projects like Dare2Dance and the London Community Boxing have targeted students who normally would have a negative view of PE. This has resulted in some outstanding progress being made across our lower ability and SEND students.

Moving the curriculum in Key Stage 4 away from a recreational type curriculum and putting an emphasis on promoting exercise and healthy lifestyles has enabled 75% of our last cohort to gain a vocational qualification from their core PE lessons that has aided them in their access and choice of 6th form provision, as well as seeing a number opt to pursue sport-related qualifications either in their further education or as a step on the rung into a career path.
