PE Curriculum Intent

 

At Benfield we have an approach to PE & School Sport which aims to help children develop physically, emotionally and socially, ensuring this is inclusive for ALL. It places the individual learners at the heart of practice with the ultimate goal of our students feeling valued, included, challenged and supported in their learning. We ensure that our students have the opportunity to discover and develop their physical potential by providing a broad range of activities.

 

Here at Benfield we focus on encouraging students to enjoy PE & School Sport, have fun, be active for a sustained period of time and lead healthy, active lives. We deliver a broad and balanced curriculum ensuring this is stimulating and innovative to ensure students become lifelong participants as well as develop character and confidence through our ME in PE approach.

 

We are further committed to recognising the importance of PE & School Sport beyond the curriculum. We believe that providing opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities and competitive sport creates an environment to embed key whole school values such as Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Independence and Communication, all of which are fully aligned to the National Curriculum.

 

The BTEC Dance course focuses mainly on Dance but also other elements of  Performing Arts. There is a large emphasis on performance in this course and pupils are expected to participate in all school productions and performances.

 The course also involves theory work, homework and learning about working in the performing arts industry.
