The PE Department has an 'all change' policy. This means unless there are exceptional circumstances, all students should change for PE regardless of illness or injury. PE Teachers will adapt lessons to be inclusive for all pupils regardless of illness or injury. Any pupil that does not get changed will receive a 30 minute detention.


Homework will usually focus on healthy active lifestyles. This may include research, application of theoretical knowledge or practical tasks.



The Academy has a big drive to develop the use of technology across the curriculum and PE is at the forefront of this. All PE staff are equipped with iPads which allows staff to increase opportunities in lessons for:  

  • Video Analysis
  • Peer and self-assessment
  • Watch video footage of correctly performed skills
  • Time keeping
  • Anatomy and physiology apps
  • Non-participants
