Sir William Robertson Academy’s aim is for all of our pupils to Aspire to be the best they can be. 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. 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:
2) Active healthy participation
3) Sustained resilience
5) Application of skills using rules, strategies and tactics
7) Skill rehearsal showing motor competence
Our curriculum is sequenced coherently so that students’ knowledge of PE incrementally grows. Lessons are knowledge rich and vocabulary rich as we cover the broad National Curriculum offering competitive and non-competitive activities. We strive to ensure our pupils are involved in activity through play, participation and or performance.
