Coombe Dean School

PE - Sport - Drama - Life Ed

PE Learning Overview

The PE curriculum endeavours to develop both physical and personal skills, ensuring that pupils leave school with the relevant knowledge and understanding to participate safety in a variety of physical activities, as well as the personal/life skills required to be successful.

Coombe Dean Physical Education focuses on the holistic development of pupils through a range of sports and activities. As a result, pupils will develop both physical and personal skills with the aim of becoming ‘Fit for Life’ upon school leaving age.

Through study, the PE curriculum aims to support pupils with enhancing health, improving wellbeing, building character and fulfilling potential.

Coombe Dean ‘Fit for Life’ is broken down into five principles; physical, thinking, social, citizen & healthy. These consist of 15 concepts (3 for each principle) which pupils will develop through their PE programme. Pupils are assessed based upon these concepts, with each sport focusing on (but not limited to) a selection of concepts during each year.
