Core PE & Dance – KS4

Core PE at Key Stage 4

Key Stage 4

  • Inspire students to experience a broad range of sporting activities, promoting enjoyment and confidence.
  • Students understanding of the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle is vital to the curriculum.
  • Respect, effort, resilience and motivation are foundations of our core values and key features we feel will prepare students for lifelong participation in physical activity.


In KS4 students should demonstrate a motivation and determination to succeed in physical activity.  Throughout Key Stage 4 students will embed leadership and teamwork in each activity theme.  Students will be given the opportunity to demonstrate their decision making and application of skill in areas of the PE curriculum they feel comfortable in.
