Rationale

At Ravenshall School it is our intention to provide a balanced programme of physical activities for our students, regardless of any academic, physical or cultural differences, within a safe and caring environment. 

We want to ensure the provision contains stimulating, challenging, but also enjoyable and realistic, targets.  By doing this we hope to promote the social and moral values of respect and tolerance for each other, plus a sense of fair play.

We want our students to be able to appreciate the advantages of an active and healthy lifestyle and wherever possible raise their self-esteem       
 

 

Aims

Knowledge, Skills and Understanding

a) Acquiring and developing skills.
Some pupils should develop skills into techniques specific to suit different activities displaying some measure of control.  Some pupils with specific difficulties will only be able to explore basic skills, actions and ideas, though most should be able to consolidate existing skills and gain new ones.

b) Selecting and applying skills, tactics and compositional ideas.
Most pupils should have developed the ability to plan and adapt strategies, tactics and compositional ideas co-operatively.  Some pupils with specific difficulties will not be able to significantly progress and therefore will only practice skills and actions in sequence and combination.

c)  Evaluating and improving performance

Most pupils should be able to evaluate their performance and suggest improvements.  Some pupils with specific difficulties will not have progressed so far and may only be able to observe and copy others.

d)  Knowledge and understanding of fitness and health

All pupils will know of some reason why it is important and fun to be active.  Most pupils will have some idea about being properly dressed and warmed up for physical activity and understand the need for good hygiene.
