PE at Mascalls Academy: We have designed our curriculum using the KS3 National Curriculum and it is delivered under the framework of the IB Middle Years programme. We have also referenced the KS2 Programmes of Study in our initial planning.

The PE Department at Mascalls Academy aims to develop students’ physical ability and understanding of skills, techniques, strategies and communication. We aim to develop their ability and understanding in a wide range of physical activities, either individual or group activities, associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle. We also aim to develop students’ confidence and broad skills, especially those of risk taking, being open minded, well balanced and reflective. These, together with the development of positive values and attitudes in PE, provide a good foundation for students’ lifelong learning.

At KS4 and KS5, examinations PE students explore human Anatomy and Physiology, Nutrition and Diet manipulation, Sport Psychology, Sociocultural factors affect how they perform and participation, plus many more. This broad curriculum content allows students to become masters in a number of different sporting aspects allowing for endless opportunities in the Sport industry. Our students not only learn this valuable content but they are provided opportunities to lead, coach, feel inspired and develop their independent study, preparing them for further education and careers in the Sport Industry.
