During a student’s learning journey at St Edward’s Academy, they will experience a variety of sporting activities. The curriculum will embed a love of, and passion for, sport and sports science.
Emphasis is placed on application of skill, game performance and enjoyment during lessons and extra- curricular activities. Our ambition is to promote a lifelong healthy and active lifestyle, achieved through both a practical and theoretical setting.
Students use technical terminology accurately and precisely with confidence, building up an extended specialist vocabulary. They can apply their mathematical knowledge to their understanding of PE, including measuring, timing, estimating and analysing data.
Students will develop interpersonal skills, self-confidence, resilience and the ability to persevere through challenging situations. Students are supported to make positive and informed choices around their health, wellbeing and diet, linking the benefits of a healthy diet and physical activity to mental and physical wellbeing.
The curriculum supports students in developing their leadership skills through sport. They have a sound understanding of different sports and their origins, including British and worldwide sporting role models. The curriculum develops passionate, engaged and enthusiastic students.
Curriculum Theological Underpinnings
Similarly anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules.”
(2 Timothy 2:5)
We want our students to develop a respect for rules and boundaries and understanding how they can thrive within.
“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirt” (1 Corinthians 6:19) and “physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things”.
We want to celebrate all creation as created good by God, and this includes our bodies. The way we treat our bodies is honouring God. We want our students to learn the value of training and to push ourselves in physical exercise as a good in itself, but also as a way to develop perseverance and character.
