‘If you want to do well, you need to be well’

At Coombe Dean we aspire to provide our students with a range of opportunities that ignite a passion for physical activity and embed healthy habits that will make a difference to their lifelong wellness and character.

The key principles that support this intent are:

Atmosphere: Developing positive relationships will allow us to create a culture whereby students are safe, active, having fun and engaged along with an understanding and acceptance that there are certain ‘non-negotiables’.

Approach: Our lesson structure will remain consistent in both a practical and theoretical environment allowing for familiarity for students but also not impinging on teacher autonomy; this will be encouraged and developed (learning from the front).

Assessment: Learning will be assessed in three strands; attitudes, skills and knowledge. The attitudes will focus on character development, the skills on sporting ability and the knowledge on curriculum progress (KS2 prior learning, cross-curricular links and GCSE PE syllabus).  These assessment foci will be planned across the year and may involve multiple or individual strands.
