PHYSICAL  EDUCATION

SUBJECT OVERVIEW


The Physical Education department are passionate about developing a lifelong positive attitude towards physical activity, exercise and sport, for every student in the school.  We aim to provide and broad and balanced curriculum that motivates and inspires all students to engage in a healthy active lifestyle within school and beyond.


Alongside developing their sport specific skills and improving their fitness, pupils develop a range of inter-personal skills. Teamwork, problem solving, leadership and communication skills are encouraged throughout the pupils time in Physical Education. Students are given the opportunity to develop these skills through leading warm-ups, competing as part of a team and undertaking the role of a coach and official.


EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES


An important part of Physical Education at Whitby is the massive extra-curricular programme. A broad range of activities are on offer to students throughout the week after school.  A various points in the year, students can expect to access following activities: football, rugby, netball, cross country, basketball, softball, rounders and athletics.  All students are welcome to attend any of the clubs on offer, but there is also a dedicated ‘Social Club’ which is less competitive and allows students to regularly meet up with friends to try new and exciting activities, such as trampolining, table tennis and dodgeball.

The school is one of the leading providers of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme in Cheshire. With the help of the PE department, students are able to participate in the DofE Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.


The PE department also run a number of school trips throughout the year, including an annual ski trip.  Annual charity events are also organised by the PE department with pupils raising a significant amount of money for great causes.
