PE and Dance

Curriculum Intent Summary – Our PE and Dance curriculum at Frederick Gent School is based on the National Curriculum PE. Our intent is for students to enjoy PE/Physical Activity. To gain confidence to perform in a breadth of sports and activities resulting in life long physical activity. To develop students understanding of physical, social and emotional health whilst increasing skills, nurture talent and passion for Physical Activities.

We offer a broad range of activities in the curriculum including overcoming opponents (netball, basketball, football, table tennis, badminton, dodgeball, benchball and ultimate Frisbee), other competitive activities including accurate replication (athletics, trampolining), outdoor adventurous activities (team building, problem solving), Exploring and communicating ideas (dance) and health and fitness (yoga, fitness training, aerobics).

Students in Key Stage 3 receive two hours of quality PE each week, with all lessons having a focus of;

  • Physical Skills– to develop the fundamental and advanced skills to competently perform in a broad spectrum of sporting activities.
  • Personal skills – Developing interpersonal behaviours and resistance and understand how these are transferable skills. 
  • Theoretical skills– To improve effective performance outcomes and increase students understanding of physical activity.
