Our Intent for PE and Sports at Abbot Alphege Academy
At Abbot Alphege Academy, it is our intent to provide high-quality PE education and a wide range of opportunities. Children at AAA will be given the chance to explore and learn about a wide range of sports and will have the opportunity to play competitively during lessons and at wider sporting events.
Our athletes will develop a culture of teamwork, sportsmanship and respect for all. We aim for this to filter into all areas of learning and across our curriculum. Within our scheme of work, our children will develop their skills through a variety of sports that are pitched at different year group levels. Teachers will adapt these lessons to suit the needs of the class by using the ‘STEP’ approach. STEP stands for ‘space’, ‘task’, ‘equipment’ and ‘people’.
We want all pupils to leave Abbot Alphege Academy with a lifelong involvement in sport and healthy living, whilst fostering a passion for sport and physical activity. We want them to have an understanding of the hard-work and dedication of athletes and the attributes that they have. We want to inspire our children to think about how our school rules and values play a part in physical activity, not only at our school but in their lives.
At Abbot Alphege Academy this year, we have achieved a Bronze School Games Award for our efforts in internal and external sporting fixtures and our netball team came second in their first big tournament (Autumn 2022) and will be representing our school and area in a county tournament (Spring 2023). We will continue to offer our children the opportunity to achieve anything that they put their mind to.
Abbot Alphege strives to give children the opportunity to take part in competitions whether this be in school or at sporting facilities around Bath, competing against other schools. Many of our opportunities are provided by School Games.
We also have many sports clubs at Abbot Alpehge including a multi sports club run by PH Sports. They also provide us with a mentoring programme for children throughout the school.
