Alongside the aim and focus for each year, the CORE PE curriculum also enables students to:

  • Develop a lifelong love of learning of sport through finding one physical activity that they can take part in and enjoy beyond school
  • Understand how sport can contribute to their physical, mental and social health and wellbeing through a well-being session linked to CORE PE
  • Develop their understanding of the sport further through involvement in extra-curricular clubs, sporting fixtures and links to local clubs (Mansfield Rugby Club, Mansfield Town FC, Welbeck FC, Meden Vale Rugby, Mansfield Giants, Welbeck Cricket Club, Mansfield Harriers and AC)
  • Develop an understanding of the sporting values that can be promoted through PE and how they contribute to a growth mind-set and outstanding ATL
  • Develop ambition through opportunities to engage in a supportive careers education so they can make informed decisions about their future in a sporting career (CNAT Sport Studies, GCSE PE, A Level PE, University Progression)
