Welcome to the Sport and Leisure Department

at Exmouth Community College

Intent

To ensure that all our pupils, regardless of their ability on entry, have the opportunity to experience a wide range of activities and experiences so that they continue to lead a healthy active lifestyle beyond their time at the school.

We also want to ensure that students develop their physical literacy and teamwork skills to help them thrive in the workplace. Following a curriculum which provides positive, memorable experiences and rich opportunities for high quality learning, we want all students to leave Exmouth Community College as resilient individuals who are able to respond positively to all challenges and use these experiences as stepping stones to success.

Furthermore, we want students to experience success and overcome adversity by offering a wide range of recreational and sporting opportunities as part of a wholesome extra-curricular programme

All pupils participate in 1 hour of practical PE per week at Key Stage 4 in groups that are single sex and set by ability. In Key Stage 4 we aim to build on the broad experiences provided in KS3 and also provide an experience of new activities and roles in sport. Along with participation and performance, pupils gain experience as coaches, leaders and officials. Our overarching aim is to find activities which engage pupils enough for them to become lifelong participators in a variety of sporting roles. Pupils follow a common programme of study. Units of work are based on the National Curriculum and are adapted to the individual needs of our pupils. Pupils also have an opportunity during student voice activities to put forward their suggestions for activities that they would enjoy doing in PE. Their suggestions are then considered and reviewed by the PE department and used to design the programme, ensuring that it is pupil focussed and inclusive.
