PE Philosophy

The aim of the Physical Education Programme at Scissett Middle is to provide opportunities to participate in physical activities conducive to a healthy lifestyle, whilst developing the physical competence to enable them to enjoy a range of activities. Pupils will follow a varied curriculum throughout Years 6 - 8 in a wide variety activities, taught by a team of specialist PE teachers. Through Physical Education we will aim to build confidence and allow pupils to be creative and competitive.

The use of specialist coaches allows the department to introduce new activities and keep the curriculum varied and fresh whilst allowing the members of staff to continue to develop their expertise in an increasing range of activities. 

Some of the Sports Premium funding has been used to purchase specialist equipment to develop the athletics curriculum, whilst the funding has also helped transport pupils to compete in Local and regional events including the West Yorkshire Youth Games at Leeds Beckett University. 

‘The additional Primary School Sports funding is used to supplement the school's existing and extensive collaborative work to promote pupils' participation in sport. Pupils of all ages are very positive about these opportunities and the vast majority are involved in sport outside their normal lessons.’ - Ofsted 2013
