Inclusion in PE
All students have equal rights to active participation in PE at The Angmering School regardless of race, class, colour, creed, sex, sexuality, age or ability.
The department offers a diverse range of activities with the intention of including all students, across the full breadth of the school. This is achieved through a process driven KS3 curriculum opening wider delivery choices, including well balanced and streamed groupings to allow the best development possible for all to meet individual learning needs.
At KS4/5 the students have a wide range of options to suit all learning styles and needs, including GCSE PE theory and practical, BTEC First and National and Public Services which offer alternative career paths in sport and leisure. The delivery of CSLA and JSLA promotes independent learning, helps to raise participation levels in sport.
A comprehensive extra-curricular programme of activities in a wide range of activities accessible for all allows students to continue learning outside the classroom. These are available during lunchtimes and after school increasing the participation rates and access.
