• To develop physical ability through a variety of activities.

At DBS we are dedicated to nurturing well-balanced and independent students who are also able to work together effectively in a team. Throughout our PE programme, we focus on the physical, social and competitive development of our students. Experiencing our PE programme helps our students understand the value of physical activity and the benefits it gives to their lifestyle.
Students develop knowledge, skills and understanding through participation in a variety of activities such as:
• Table Tennis
Students take part in a broad and balanced activity-based curriculum for two 45 minute lessons per week.
Students will build on their PE experience by establishing basic skills in a variety of activity areas. As they progress through KS2 they will increasingly transfer these skills into game-related and competitive situations.
Students are taught and assessed within the six strands of our PE curriculum programme.
The GCSE PE option enables students to gain a national qualification in PE.
Students will develop their personal practical ability, knowledge and understanding of tactics, strategies and rules, and study the theoretical side to the subject.
Students will spend 2 x 45 minutes in practical activities, and 2 x 45 minutes working on developing their knowledge and understanding of the theory aspects.
The course has the following weightings;
• Practical-60% (12% coursework based)
• Theory-40% (three sections covered: Exercise and Training, Safety Aspects and Risk Assessment, and Applied Anatomy and Physiology).
Students will be expected to complete homework to support their theory work and where appropriate practical activities.
