Physical Education at Rooks Heath
Welcome to the Physical Education Department at Rooks Heath College. The PE Department is a thriving and busy department with an excellent reputation. The department has six full time members of staff, (two female and four male) all of whom are fully committed to teaching a variety of activities to suit all.
All members of the department have a passion for sport and we pride ourselves on our enthusiasm and commitment to getting students involved and trying to discover that little bit of brilliance in all of them.
The PE department delivers a challenging yet enjoyable curriculum across a wide range of sports. There are also numerous sporting opportunities available after college where students can attend one of the team practices or attend clubs for enjoyment.
We value the benefits of team sports, which allow students to work together to achieve their goal. However, we also recognise the importance of individual needs and we also cater for those students who either excel in individual activities or do not necessarily enjoy team sports.
The Subject Curriculum
“Students have an excellent understanding of the need to stay healthy and are keen to participate in sports clubs and activities.” – Ofsted
The PE Department aim to deliver a high quality curriculum that enables all students to enjoy and suceed in many kinds of physical activity. PE develops students’ competence and confidence to take part in a range of physical activities that become a central part of their lives both in and out of college.
Students develop a wide range of skills and abilities to use tactics, strategies and compositional ideas to perform successfully. They also develop the confidence to take part in different physical activities and learn about the value of healthy, active lifestyles.
PE helps students to develop personally and socially. They work as individuals, in groups and teams, developing concepts of fairness and of personal/social responsibility. Students are offered a wide range of individual and team activities where they are given the opportunity to plan, perform, evaluate, make decisions and lead others.
During Key Stage 3 and 4, time is spent on games teaching, such as football, netball, rugby, basketball, volleyball, cricket, softball and rounders. Other activities include trampolining, gymnastics, athletics, dance, badminton, outdoor adventurous activities and fitness.
