PE and GAMES
PE lessons at BCS have a primary focus on the development of skills, knowledge, understanding, character, confidence, health and fitness. It is in these lessons that pupils learn about the sport and have the opportunity to further develop and learn the finer motor skills of the sport being taught. Our Physical Education (PE) and Health curriculum will bring out ‘the best in everyone’.
Games sessions at BCS are historically held in the afternoons and allow pupils to participate on a competitive platform for the school This may be against other schools and teams or simply in an inter-house competitive format. BCS Games afternoons allow pupils to put into practice what they have learnt within their PE lessons and have a primary focus on game play and participation.
The two combined will enable our young people to forge a positive lifelong relationship with physical activity and sport.
