Key Stage 3

The high quality PE curriculum offered at Arden enables all pupils to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activities.  Pupils are assessed in six areas; Physical, Personal, Creative, Cognitive, Health and Social.  Within these areas, pupils develop a wide range of skills and the ability to use tactics, strategies and compositional ideas to perform successfully.  Our broad curriculum offers a wide range of activities including; outdoor adventurous activities, dance, net/wall games, Invasion - just to name a few.  In addition to this, pupils take part in a competition week at the end of every term.  This allows pupils to compete against others in their year group in their choice of activity.  This curriculum allows pupils to develop personally and socially as they work as individuals, in groups and in teams; developing concepts of fairness and of personal and social responsibility.  They take on different roles and responsibilities, including leadership, coaching and officiating.  Through the range of experiences that PE offers, they learn how to be effective in competitive, creative and challenging situations.
