As a PE department, we aim to provide a challenging, disciplined and safe environment for high quality learning and teaching which is ambitious for all students. Pupils experience a balance of sports and activities which has the necessary coherence and breadth to enable pupils to succeed.
The pupils of Coal Clough Academy experience a knowledge rich curriculum that is designed to be enjoyable, vigorous, purposeful, and progressive. We aim to provide positive experiences which aim to build a lifelong interest in physical activity.
In PE pupils progress through the following pillars:
- Motor Competence- focusing on their fundamental motor skills.
- Rules, Strategies and Tactics- allowing them to move in accordance with the demands of the context they are in.
- Healthy Participation- making the connection between the knowledge of health and how it applies to physical activity.
At Key Stage 4, pupils have the opportunity to undertake a sport qualification, in year 10 pupils complete Level 1 in Active, Healthy Living and in year 11 pupils complete a Level 2 qualification in Sport. There is a core PE available to all students in Key Stage 4.
Throughout their time at Coal Clough Academy, pupils have the opportunity to take part in competitions with other AP and PRU schools in Lancashire.
