Physical Education

Our curriculum is designed to reach the whole student. We aim to teach our students core British values through sport allowing them to play, succeed and communicate in a range of sporting activities, allowing studnts to gain vital life experience and understanding of the different physical, social and emotional needs for a healthy lifestyle.


Learning will be embedded though the acquisition of outstanding habits and high expectations. Students are expected to be accountable for themselves and are shown how to be a proactive leaner rather than reactive one.


The department’s aim is to develop lifelong enthusiasm and love towards Physical Education and participation in sport. This may be though links in the community; refereeing or umpiring matches; playing in school; or even representing the academy in local and national fixtures.


Students will be shown how and why we should eat a balanced diet and the benefits and effects of exercise on their own bodies. Termly PE challenges are created and students compete to achieve the best time or distance. The fully inclusive extracurricular programme allows students to extend their skills further in both competitive and non-competitive situations.


The Curriculum is designed so students have the opportunity to represent the academy at the sport they are being taught during P.E lessons. The curriculum is sequenced such that during year 7, students are taught the rules, laws and how to play a game or match. As they progress through their time at Riverside, we target specific and enhanced skills, analysis of strength and weakness and a code of conduct. Core knowledge is assessed by students demonstrating, talking or meeting set end points during a lesson. Achieving these end points will move each student towards our curriculum intent of well-rounded sporting individuals who can access sport at any level according to their sporting goals.
