At JCoSS, we offer a high-quality Physical Education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. All students have the opportunity to develop a variety of physical skills and we see each of them – regardless of talent or ability – as an individual with something to offer. We provide opportunities for students to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness, along with opportunities to compete in sport to help build character and embed mensch values such as fairness and respect. Students are taught to become more competent, confident and expert in their techniques, and apply them across different sports and physical activities, while developing the confidence and interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school. During Key Stage 3, students develop game skills in Basketball, Netball, Table -Tennis, Badminton, Handball and Cricket. Individual skills are developed through Gymnastics, Athletics and Dance. During Key Stage 4, students have a broader choice of options and are allowed to pick a sporting option each half term. Students also have the choice to study Physical Education as a GCSE option in Key Stage 4.
We strive to develop students’ use of a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in direct competition (through team and individual games) and develop their techniques and improve their performance in other competitive sports. We fully encourage our students to take part in competitive sports and activities outside of school through Maccabi community links and sports clubs. Our facilities include a sports hall, activity studio, and multi-gym, in addition to our Multi use games area and all-weather pitches.
