The Accelerated Learning Cycle, based on the work of Alastair Smith, is applied in all lessons. It stems from the idea of a supportive and challenging learning environment. The cycle has active engagement through multi-sensory learning, encourages the demonstrating understanding of learning in a variety of ways and the consolidation of knowing.
Within a lesson a new skill is introduced, learners have the time to practise this skill and then apply the skill to a game situation. This builds on the gather, skills, apply approach and delivery of lessons is taken across school to ensure children develop a deep understanding of specific skills and are able to apply these in a range of situations.
Ultimately, providing opportunities to allow children to be fit and healthy are at the heart of the PE curriculum offer that we provide to the children exploring a wide range of topics, to prepare them for life. This include: approved sporting competitions, weekly running clubs, extra-curricular sports clubs and residential stays.
These opportunities provided through school via our PE curriculum has inspired and developed a new generation of successful competitors both locally and nationally.
