Physical Education at Wightwick Hall School

PE here at Wightwick Hall consists of three key aspects to develop pupils to achieve their very best. We develop pupils in their physical capability, key life skills and their effort to try their very best. Pupils will also cover a range of different topics and sports such as invasion games, net/wall games, fitness, creative movement, striking and fielding and athletics.

New this academic year, we have introduced the new year 10ís to the BTEC Entry level 3 Sport and Active Leisure course which they will complete over two years. This can also be used as a good incentive to continue their studies into sixth form and complete their Level 1 course.


Pupils will be assessed on physical skills relating to the following topic areas: Creative Movements, Fitness, Invasion Games, Net/Wall, Athletics, Striking and Fielding and Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS).


Pupils will be assessed on their efforts in each lesson and the amount of work that they put into the activities and tasks set within PE lessons.


Pupils will be assessed on various key life skills that will enhance their personal, emotional and social development: Communication, Reflection, Healthy Values, Literacy, and Decision Making.

Ultimately, the main goal is to develop physically literate individuals that have a love of learning and will participate within sport or physical activity for a lifetime. Understanding and developing the key values and life skills that will serve them for a lifetime throughout school and after they have move on into adulthood.
