Southbrook is committed to providing opportunities for young people to participate, perform and lead in sport. We believe passionately in the difference that these opportunities can make to young people.
Through Physical Education lessons, every pupil will develop the confidence, skills and knowledge to engage in active, healthy lifestyles. To this end, we offer an exciting and broad range of physical activities ranging from Occupational Therapy-linked programmes to specialist coaching in a range of sports.
The curriculum is reviewed yearly to make sure it meets the needs of all pupils and where necessary content is adjusted, developed or extended depending on pupil engagement, learning and progress. Currently KS3 pupils access two sessions a week where they receive lessons in invasion games, striking and fielding, net/wall games, inclusion sports and athletics. KS4 pupils receive a similar diet, but also have the opportunity to opt in to additional physical activities.
Throughout the academic year our pupils have the opportunity to experience a variety of other activities which enhance, develop and promote their learning within PE. These activities include things such as;
- Intra school fixtures
- Inter school fixtures
- Devon Ability Counts Competition days
- Chance to Shine cricket project
- G & T days
- Swimming galas
- Orienteering competitions
- Inclusion competitions in goalball etc.
All pupils that have been appropriately identified as having a need, receive physio treatment/exercises. Pupils also have access to regular core stability sessions which enhance their core and assist their learning process. These interventions and their success are monitor termly.
