Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

PE

"I am an ordinary man, who worked hard to develop the talent I was given. I believed in myself and the others around me."

Muhammed Ali


“I'm proud of the way I've dealt with setbacks. It's hard when you feel down and you think, 'Why is the world doing this to me?' But you have to pick yourself up again. That's what makes you a better athlete”

                                                                            Jessica Ennis

 

 

The aim of Physical Education is to provide appropriate opportunities and experiences for individuals to achieve their optimum potential. Physical Education is primarily concerned with physical capabilities but the associated aspects of knowledge and understanding are also vital components for all children. Additionally the development of personal skills within a social setting can be enhanced by participating in an appropriate and sensitively designed Physical Education programme.

The PE department underpin PE lessons through a variety of sports clubs and fixtures. Examples of extra-curricular opportunities ran by the PE department staff throughout the year include; Football, Netball, Basketball, Gymnastics, Fitness Training, Table Tennis, Cricket, Volleyball, Athletics, Rounders, Badminton and Hockey.

Sport plays an essential part in the life of the school. Harris Academy Tottenham seeks to offer opportunities for all students to enjoy a variety of sports at all levels through stimulating class-room based lessons and an extensive extra-curricular programme. It is to be acknowledged that the aim of Physical Education is to encompass enjoyment and satisfaction and thereby encourage a lifelong commitment to an active and healthy lifestyle.


Aims of the PE Department:

  • To encourage and motivate all students to develop their full potential through a range of purposeful, yet enjoyable activities within a challenging environment.
  • To develop an understanding of the benefits of participation in physical activity now and in later life.
  • To enable students to be familiar with a body of knowledge, principles and vocabulary related to P.E.
  • To develop an appreciation of skilful and creative performances in a variety of sports activities.
  • To employ teaching methods and resources that allow all students (irrespective of their gender, ethnic origin, academic ability, etc.) to have equal access to P.E, and to experience success and enjoyment in their P.E. work.
  • To show equality in developing opportunities for all students and foster the culture of inclusion.
  • To promote the development of interpersonal skills (organisation, co-operation, initiative and responsibility) and to heighten self-esteem, whilst encouraging tolerance of and respect for other groups and individuals.
  • To provide the necessary stimuli to encourage the development of decision making, imaginative thinking and problem solving.
  • To encourage students to develop personal qualities of commitment, fairness and enthusiasm and an appreciation of honest competition and good sportsmanship.
  • To allow students to develop informed opinions and to be able to support them by reasonable argument.
  • To provide students with the opportunities to work with others in the wider community.
  • To make students aware of local community sports clubs where they can build upon skills learnt in the Academy and further develop their social skills.
