Physical Education

Sports At Rookwood Independent School

At the P.E. department at Rookwood, our aim is to make sports as fun, enjoyable and varied as possible.

All of our students are engaged in a broad curriculum offering a wide range of sports and also through our extra-curricular activities. The emphasis of P.E. at Rookwood Private School is inclusivity, ensuring all students can access sport and feel valued in doing so.  We recognise that sport can have a huge impact on students’ emotional wellbeing and therefore focus on giving our students the opportunity of participating in as many different activities as possible. Our aim is to support each student in finding and developing their passion for their chosen sports.

PE Curriculum

The Physical Education Learning Journey outlines key milestones and holistic targets that we aim to meet through the PE curriculum at each key stage in the school. The progression from learning fundamental movements in KS1 through to tactical awareness in KS4 is deliberate and structured into each block of work. At Rookwood, we are not solely focused on developing athletic skills and techniques, but also developing students’ social and emotional wellbeing through P.E.

The P.E. curriculum at Rookwood Private School is varied and flexible. It has been structured to offer a blend of invasion games, net or wall games, striking and fielding games and compositional activities such as gymnastics and dance.
