Welcome to the Physical Education subject page. Our team aims to increase participation in physical activities for all our pupils and will achieve this by providing a broad curriculum which is fun, challenging and relevant.
We strongly believe in high quality physical education lessons, blending practical application of skills in sports with theoretical knowledge of phycology and physiology of sport. We endeavour to offer a high-quality physical education curriculum inspiring all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness as well as opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. Students in KS1 and KS2 are taught 1 lesson a week. KS3 and KS4 are taught 2 lessons a week.
Pupils will build on and embed the physical development and skills learned in key stages 1 and 2, become more competent, confident and expert in their techniques, and apply them across different sports and physical activities. They should understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work. They will develop the confidence and interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school and in later life, and understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.
KS4 Physical Education
Physical Education is chosen as an option in Year 9, to pursue as a GCSE in Year 10 and Year 11. Pupils are taught 2 lessons a week. The OCR GCSE (9–1) PE is relevant to the modern, changing world of physical education, it’s designed to boost practical ability as well as theoretical elements in sports.
This carefully planned course gives students a real, in-depth understanding of how the sporting world works. It offers an insight into what goes on ‘behind the scenes’, including physiological adaptations that occur while taking part in sport as well the psychology of sport.
Secondary Sports Leaders
We run a secondary sports leadership program where pupils are selected from Y9 to lead activities and run competition at Al-Hijrah School and at the Central Sports Partnership competitions, our current sports leaders have attended a Cricket coaching course at Edgbaston Cricket ground and Tri-golf coaching course at Starbank School. They volunteer their time to support and encourage primary pupils to be more active through after-school clubs and competitions.
Parents are encouraged to work and support their children by encouraging them to take part in extra-curricular activities. We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities for our children: the sports clubs include; football, netball, cricket, athletics, badminton, table tennis and archery. Our aim with these clubs is to get as many children involved in sport as possible and to let them enjoy taking part.
Y3/Y4 Cricket After-school club
In Primary PE we give the pupils the opportunity to take part in a range of activities and experience sports leadership programs, we currently have play leaders in Y2 and Y5 and Bronze Ambassadors in Y5. We take part in various sports competitions through-out the year at local schools where the pupils have the chance win medals and receive school games values badges.
