Physical Education

Road to Rio Wadebridge School Olympics Week


Wadebridge PE Vision

Work within the Wadebridge Physical Education Department at all Key Stages is designed to support, contribute to and compliment the aims of the school.  We aim to provide an enjoyable, challenging programme, with opportunities for all students to develop their physical, social and cognitive skills. The curriculum offers a comprehensive range of experiences to meet the needs of the individual students, and encourages active involvement as performers, observers and officials. This experience is complemented and extended through a significant extra-curricular programme designed to allow further development of skills in both competitive and non-competitive environments.  The development of confidence, tolerance and the appreciation of one’s own and others’ strengths and weaknesses are considered to be an important part of the learning process where personalising learning and challenge are integral to success.

Aims - Achievement for All

  1. To increase knowledge and promote positive attitudes to health and fitness.
  2. To develop an ability to adapt and apply knowledge, skills and concepts in a range of physical activities.
  3. To build up self-esteem through the development of physical competence and confidence.
  4. To develop knowledge and understanding of safety procedures and the ability to apply safety principles in different contexts.
  5. To appreciate the benefits of physical exercise and cope with both successes and failures in competitive and co-operative activities and  work at maximal levels.
  6. To evaluate personal performance, identify development needs and experience the enjoyment and satisfaction of success in physical activity.
