The All Hallows PE Department aims to provide pupils with a high-quality physical education. We aim to inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We want to provide opportunities for building confidence and resilience in a way which supports their health and fitness. We strive to provide as many opportunities as possible for pupils to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
- We aim to develop pupils knowledge and ability to excel in a wide range of physical activities
- We aim for pupils to be physically active for sustained periods of time
- We aim to engage pupils in competitive sports and activities
- We aim for pupils to have the knowledge and capabilities to lead healthy, active lives.

- develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports,[for example, athletics and gymnastics], or other physical activities [for example, dance]
- take part in further outdoor and adventurous activities in a range of environments which present intellectual and physical challenges and which encourage pupils to work in a team, building on trust and developing skills to solve problems, either individually or as a group
- evaluate their performances compared to previous ones and demonstrate improvement across a range of physical activities to achieve their personal best

All children will experience a well-balanced and comprehensive curriculum that enhances informed, intellectual, developmental and moral character. As a result, this will improve life chances, interpersonal relationships, social mobility and preparedness for employment. Our curriculum will encourage everyone to have a positive impact on society.
By following the OCR Sports Science course learners will develop different types of skills through largely practical means; communication, problem solving, team working, evaluation and analysis, performing under pressure, and formulating written findings from practical investigation. These are all transferable skills which can be learned and assessed through the qualification and utilised in many other educational and employment settings. Students will appreciate that elite sport has embraced sport science disciplines wholeheartedly in the past few decades, moving from a perspective which assumed the primacy of natural talent in producing outstanding performance, to one which considers every minute detail of an athlete’s training programme, rest time, environment and psychology in the pursuit of excellence.
The Cambridge Nationals in Sport Science offer learners the opportunity to study key areas of sport science including anatomy and physiology linked to fitness, health, injury and performance; the science of training and application of training principles, and psychology in sport and sports performance.
Sport is a key theme in most areas of both education and health policy. The need for people to lead healthy and active rather than sedentary lifestyles is increasingly prominent in respect of government initiatives, and this is reflected in the school curriculum, where physical education and sport remains core; these qualifications seek to build upon this provision at key stages 3 and 4.
