At Addeys, we aim to provide a high-quality physical education curriculum, that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. We aim provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. We also aim to provide opportunities to compete in sport and other activities, build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

At Addeys we aim to create a lively, active and motivating learning environment that is able to cater for the needs of all students. Our wide and varied PE curriculum gives students the opportunity to experience a variety of sports. In PE lesson students can take up many different roles, including performer, coach, captain, officiator and more
The PE extra-curricular options at Addeys are based around student voice. This means that we run the extra-curricular clubs that students have requested. This is done by means of a questionnaire that is sent out to all students at the start of the year. In organising our clubs this way, we aim to get maximum student participation. PE extra-curricular activities run before school at lunch time and after school.
The PE department offer whole school inter-house competitions throughout the school year with the final event being our sports day that takes place in the summer term.
Throughout the school year we have teams that go out and compete against other schools in a variety of competitive fixtures and tournaments.
Addeys have a partnership with Greenhouse Sports who run an extensive table tennis programme at the school. The programme works on the STEP (social, thinking, emotional, physical) framework, to develop the student's full potential through the sport. The programme has brought the school both local and national success, including being U13 national table champions.
pupils should build on and embed the physical development and skills learned in key stages 1 and 2, become more competent, confident and expert in their techniques, and apply them across different sports and physical activities. They should understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work. They should develop the confidence and interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school and in later life, and understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.
