Sir William Robertson Academy’s aim is for all of our pupils to Aspire to be the best that they can be and this core principle drives our vision for curriculum content, sequencing and delivery. It is our belief that Physical Education is vital in maintaining our students’ health; not just their physical health but using physical activity as a vehicle to improve positive mental health and social wellbeing for all our students. Underpinning the curriculum design are “7 Core values” which are not only vital characteristics and skills for life but are essential for what it takes to meet our core value of ASPIRE. Pupils will be taught the importance of respect and fairness; – commit to a healthy active lifestyle; – show sustained resilience; – use initiative when given leadership roles; – show confidence with their communication skills; – rehearse skills; – apply skills in competitive situations. Our curriculum is sequenced coherently so that students’ appreciation of PE incrementally grows as we support whole school SMSC activities and provide memorable bucket list activities and memorable trip experiences for all students. We strive to ensure our pupils are involved in play, participation and or performance.
