KS3 Curriculum Intent 

 

Upon entry to the Winsford Academy our ethos is to ensure students are given the tools to make a successful transition into the academy irrespective of primary school experiences and backgrounds. During their five-year academy career, we would like to spark and develop sporting ambitions, setting students on a journey of discovery in which we create independent young adults with the resilience to pursue a healthy active lifestyle when their academy career ends, in the process students will cultivate positive characteristic traits that will increase their employability prospects as future adult citizens.

Our high-quality PE curriculum will inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. Engagement in PE allows students to develop predominately their health and fitness but has the capacity to develop student’s confidence and so many other positive personality traits.

Our enrichment program also provides opportunities to compete in sport and other activities, building character and helping to embed values such as fairness and respect in sport and society in general.
