Head of Faculty – Jay Hill 

The PE curriculum will help all our pupils work towards the four goals of the Oak Tree School Curriculum Intent. Through team sports we will encourage and model pro-social behaviours so our children can work towards more positive relationships. The experience of winning, losing and exerting your body will build emotional resilience. Learning the rules of different sports and playing within the boundaries they provide will help foster tolerance and respect. Finally, sport always delivers the opportunity for children to achieve their best, always striving towards the best outcome.

Physical Education at Oak Tree School aims to ensure that all pupils;

  • Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • Are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • Engage in competitive sports and activities
  • Lead healthy and active lives

By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant program of study.

Physical Education is a foundation subject in the National Curriculum. Planning is in line with National Curriculum requirements for KS1 and KS2.

The subject leader is aware that the Primary Strategy document, Excellence and Enjoyment encourages a creative approach to the curriculum. The scheme of work is reviewed on a rolling program.

Throughout Key Stages 3 and 4 students will follow a sport education model which has an emphasis on participation, team work, organisation and competition. (For more information on sport education please contact the subject leader).

In Y9 students aim to complete and gain accreditation in UAS (unit award scheme) for recognition of the development of their skills and knowledge in different sporting areas. At KS4 all students will follow an entry award (EL3) in sport and leisure with some students aiming to achieve a Level 1 award and certificate. The school has added The JSLA into its curriculum which allows students to gain a qualification within coaching. The school has had a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) built allowing onsite P.E lessons to take place.
