Physical Education Department Intent Statement
The key aim of PE at WSAPC is to use sport to teach valuable life skills students can take with them in the future. At APC our students arrive with a wide range of abilities, needs and backgrounds. Some will be really strong and enjoy sport and some will have had negative experiences of PE in the past. Students leaving us slightly better at a particular sport than when they joined is not a key priority for us in our PE. We value the opportunity PE gives us to make a lasting impact on students emotional and thinking skills. Our aim is to use sport to develop the missed gaps in students education and reengage those who have found sport difficult in the past. GCSE short course PE is offered to all in KS4 with an emphasis on the importance of living a healthy active lifestyle as students look to move on from APC.
