PE at Newhaven School

"Sport teaches you character, it teaches you to play by the rules, it teaches you to know what it feels like to win and lose-it teaches you about life."

The PE curriculum here at Newhaven emphasises the connection between theory and practical skills and is designed to emphasise a variety of activities which embeds both practical and theoretical knowledge to develop further interest for either examinations and/or participation in later life.
We aim to inspire our students to flourish in sport through knowledge, good ethics, skills and the confidence to ‘give things a go’.

We believe that PE has so much to offer; promoting healthy lifestyles, creating social opportunities and developing a deeper knowledge about the world of sport.

Our PE curriculum gives our students the chance to participate in a range of Team and Individual sports that break down social and gender barriers and provide the foundation to foster a lifelong love of sport, physical activity & mental & physical wellbeing which can be carried with them through life. We also believe that competition is very beneficial for our students and we enter them into as many competitions as possible.

Undertaking this curriculum allows the students to access traditional future careers such as Sports Physiotherapy and PE teaching. It also allows them to study further apprenticeship sports coaching and Personal training programmes.
