Curriculum Intent

Kingsway Park High School PE Department is commitment to improving outcomes for all our students through the planning and delivery of a high-quality curriculum that is dynamic, engaging and embedded with high standards and expectations. We are passionate about developing skills for life, enabling all students to become resilient and respectful learners that grow into successful, independent citizens of the future. 

Physical Education at Kingsway Park High School aims to enhance students’ understanding of the importance of leading healthy and active lifestyles. A broad and varied curriculum is delivered through high-quality PE lessons that place a high value on skill acquisition and mastery, whilst inspiring ambition in our students to develop excellence and actively engage in lifelong physical activity. We place a high value on developing resilience,communication, teamwork, and respect, as well as leadership skills through sport and competition, essential skills that students will require to be successful citizens upon leaving education and entering the workplace.   

Within KS4, every student undertakes training in CPR and basic First Aid. Students opting to study OCR Cambridge National Sport Science will build on their existing knowledge from KS3 to cover a range of fascinating units that involve designing healthy and balanced meal plans; creating training programmes to meet physical improvement aims; understanding the different types of injuries that can occur within a sporting context, and how to respond to these common injuries. Covering a broad range of content provides students with a diverse and secure understanding of many different areas within sporting contexts that could lead on to a variety of careers in sport and beyond.
