Curriculum Intent Statement
The high-quality physical education curriculum at Harper Green inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. Pupils will take part in an extensive range of activities and access a broad enrichment programme that allows pupils to compete against others.
We provide a curriculum that is delivered through high quality teaching and learning that not only inspires, motivates and encourages our pupils to succeed in a range of physical activities, but encourages lifelong participation in a healthy active lifestyle.
Pupils will be introduced to the theory of sport to enhance their knowledge and understanding, preparing those pupils wishing to further their knowledge through studying BTEC or GCSE sports courses.
We consistently encourage the `We Are Harper’ characteristics in all sporting environments. Physical Education allows pupils to develop their teamwork, communication and leadership skills. It also enables pupils to build their resilience and perseverance that they can further develop and apply in the wider community and throughout their life.
