Health & Wellbeing at BSM
The Physical Education Health & Well-Being Team deliver a programme that integrates, The BSM Well-Being Framework and PSHE into the PE curriculum. Our goal is to support the health and well-being of all students and inspire them to become physically literate and lead an active and balanced lifestyle. We want all students to display strong values showing an ability to accept themselves, self-regulate and show a capacity for growth and resilience resulting in a strong sense of belonging.
Benefits of PE Activities at BSM
Our programmes are delivered through a concept based, inclusive and student-centred approach and students are encouraged to:
- Display values; respect, perseverance, team-work and fair play, as well as commitment and accepting and learning to fail.
- Use BSM Learning Power to reinforce and develop essential skills like communication, collaboration, reflective and independence.
- Transfer values and skills to different situations along their learning journey.
- Develop a life-long love of physical activity through experiencing a broad and balanced curriculum with physical literacy at the heart of the programme.
- Utilise the BSM After School Activities (ASA) programme by participating in physical activity every day at a level appropriate to their ability.
At BSM, we consider Health & Well-Being, physical activity, and school sport to be inextricably linked. All are critical pieces of the jigsaw that contribute to the whole picture of a young person’s physical health and emotional well-being. We acknowledge that our students come to PE with a vast range of abilities and experiences. We deliver a fully inclusive curriculum through mixed ability/gender teaching and differentiated lessons.
PE Activities Offered
In KS1/2 we offer a broad and balanced curriculum. The units include; Swimming, Gymnastics, Dance, Striking & Fielding Games, Athletics, Net Games and Invasion Games. We hope for our students to find an activity that they really enjoy and then pursue this during ASA’s. The Health & Well-Being curriculum links well with concept-based teaching. Learning Power Skills & Global Citizenship values are at the forefront of the lessons with a strong focus on physical literacy.
In KS 3/4, we offer a list of PE activities that the students choose to participate in blocks of 6-week units including Swimming, Gymnastics, Dance, Striking & Fielding Games, Athletics, Net Games and Invasion Games.
