Physical Education (PE) at Formby High School
PE is a vital element in a comprehensive, well-balanced curriculum and can be a major contributing factor in the development of an individual in all aspects of life: physical, emotional, mental and social. Our aims are to educate students so that they make healthy lifestyle choices, for students to enjoy taking part in broad range of physical activities, and for them to have the confidence to continue to take part in exercise outside of school. Our exciting and wide-ranging PE curriculum and extra-curricular programmes inspire students to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. They provide opportunities for students to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as teamwork, perseverance, fairness and respect.
PE allows students to develop their practical performance and cognitive skills through decision making in practical situations and analysis of performance. Students are also be encouraged to be creative and develop their leadership skills through a wide range of activities, and in Year 9 students can opt to complete an accredited Sports Leaders qualification. Our ethos is very much about ‘sport for all’, encouraging all students to participate and try out new sports from our extensive list. Alongside this, through the ‘Sporting Stars’ programme, we also seek to challenge and inspire our most able sports players to excel in their chosen activity and learn to cope with the demands of elite sport.
In addition to General PE at Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9) and Health, Fitness and Well-Being at Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11), students have the opportunity to study PE as an academic subject with OCR GCSE Physical Education offered to students in Years 10 and 11 and OCR A level Physical Education and Pearson BTEC Sport Level 3 available for students to choose in Sixth Form.
