Physical Education

Our intention through our teaching is to use sport to develop The Roseland PE values of Knowledge, determination, respect, extra-curricular involvement and physical development in the students of our School. Our intent is also to allow students to experience sport in a school setting so that they feel confident and will want to take part in sport outside of school as part of a healthy active lifestyle.

Our statement of intent has grown out of and is aligned with our school’s overall arching culture and values. This culture is what makes us what we are here at the Roseland Academy. Our “Roseland Culture” is driven to inspires every student to succeed wherever possible, with a collative responsibility born out of our mutual respect for one and all. It is these main values that have led us in the PE team to create our own “Roseland PE Values”: Knowledge, Determination, Respect, Extra-curricular Participation and Physical Development.

We as a team see Physical Education (PE) an essential subject in securing the foundations for an active and healthy lifestyle. Our goal is to provide students with a multitude of learning opportunities to develop themselves as sportspeople, citizens and learners. These opportunities include but are not restricted to: skill development, exploring the benefits of physical activity, teamwork, accepting challenge, leadership, winning and losing, playing by rules and most importantly having fun.

Given that there is a proven link between activity, health and academic outcome, we feel a sense of duty to not only increase the levels of physical activity in our students, but to instil in them a greater understanding of these benefits and a desire and enthusiasm to explore their own activity interests beyond school. We want our students to enjoy taking part in a wide range of different sports and activities and to experience the positive outcomes that this can bring. We want to develop active, healthy, physically literate students who take pride in the development of their own personal performance level and show increasingly high levels of competence in the performance of movement skills.

We live in a competitive society and so it is right that PE is used as a vehicle to prepare students for this competition. Within core PE and our extra-curricular programmes, we look to create driven students with a desire to succeed, who are resilient and respectful and determined to achieve with a strong underlying work ethic. Playing and performing alongside others is a key component in this process, and in PE we teach students the value of being part of a team and to reflect upon their role and contribution within their teams. For some this is in a traditional competitive setting, providing the buzz and challenge that only sports competition can provide. For others our focus is on enjoyment and experiencing the bit of magic that comes with taking part.

Our central goal is to prepare students for their future; in PE we summarise this in our key messages to students and the outcomes we want them to achieve in our PE values of knowledge, determination, respect, extra-curricular participation and physical development.

Below are our three “I’s”:

Intent – Our intention through our teaching is to use sport to develop the Roseland PE values of Knowledge, determination, respect, extra-curricular involvement and physical development in the students of our School. Our intent is also to allow students to experience sport in a school setting so that they feel confident and will want to take part in sport outside of school as part of a healthy active lifestyle.

Implementation – We implement this through ability set groupings so that enables students to have an appropriate level of challenge and understanding of rules of some many different sports, so that they can experience and enjoy their sporting experience. We also have a minimum of 6 lessons on each sport to allow for progression, understand and development of that sport.

Impact – We are aiming for our students to enjoy their PE lessons, understanding how the values of Knowledge, determination and respect can develop them physically, socially and mentally and that sport as lifelong pursuit that will engage them in extra-curricular sports locally and nationally.
