PE

" I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Michael Jordan

 

“Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.”

Dan Gable

The Aim of Physical Education

Sport plays an important part in the life of the school. Chobham Academy seeks to enable each student to pursue their chosen sport to the highest level whilst providing all members of the school with the opportunity to enjoy and experience a variety of physical activities.

The aim of Physical Education is to provide appropriate opportunities and experiences for individuals to achieve their optimum potential. Physical Education is primarily concerned with physical capabilities but the associated aspects of knowledge and understanding are also vital components for all children. Additionally the development of personal skills within a social setting can be enhanced by participating in an appropriate and sensitively designed Physical Education programme.

The ethos of the department is epitomised by the dedication of the staff within it.  Staff are consistently willing to commit their own time to extend the opportunities for students beyond the curriculum.  Examples of extra-curricular opportunities ran by the PE department staff throughout the year include; Football, Netball, Basketball, Gymnastics, Fitness Training, Zumba, Table Tennis, Cricket, Volleyball, Athletics, Rounders, Handball and Softball.

It is to be acknowledged that the aim of Physical Education is to encompass enjoyment and satisfaction and thereby encourage a lifelong commitment to an active and healthy lifestyle.


Fundamental Aims of the Department:

  • To encourage and motivate all students to develop their full potential through a range of purposeful, yet enjoyable activities within a challenging environment.
  • To develop an understanding of the benefits of participation in physical activity now and in later life.
  • To enable students to be familiar with a body of knowledge, principles and vocabulary related to P.E.
  • To develop an appreciation of skilful and creative performances in a variety of sports activities.
  • To develop the spirituality of all students by promoting the Academy’s 6 core values.
  • To employ teaching methods and resources that allow all students (irrespective of their gender, ethnic origin, academic ability, etc.) to have equal access to P.E, and to experience success and enjoyment in their P.E. work.
  • To show equality in developing opportunities for all students and foster the culture of inclusion.
  • To promote the development of interpersonal skills (organisation, co-operation, initiative and responsibility) and to heighten self esteem, whilst encouraging tolerance of and respect for other groups and individuals.
  • To provide the necessary stimuli to encourage the development of decision making, imaginative thinking and problem solving.
  • To encourage students to develop personal qualities of commitment, fairness and enthusiasm and an appreciation of honest competition and good sportsmanship.
  • To allow students to develop informed opinions and to be able to support them by reasonable arguments.
  • To provide students with the opportunities to work with others in the wider community.
  • To make students aware of local community sports clubs where they can build upon skills learnt in the Academy and further develop their social skills.

Key Stage 4

At Key Stage 4 students have the opportunity to study AQA GCSE PE. This pathway is suited to those who partake in a large amount of extra-curricular activity or play regular sport outside of school. There is a large theory content where topics such as health active lifestyle, demands of performance, diet, human biology and the media are studied.

For those who don’t wish to study GCSE PE our core programme enables students to pick a pathway that suits their interest within PE. There are a number of options students have open to them including a competitive pathway where highly competitive sports are frequent on the calendar; an individual pathway suited to those who prefer individual sports; or a sports leader’s pathway suited to those who wish to be involved with running sports competitions.

Extra Curricular

The PE Department has an extensive extra curricular programme for students to engage in. Please see the link here for a full timetable.
