Welcome to the PE Department
The PE department at King’s Academy Binfield and Oakwood’s main priority is developing the students physical literacy skills and a deep understanding of the role physical activity plays in keeping our bodies and minds healthy. This is achieved by delivering a mixture of practical performance, experimentation, play, leadership and coaching, but always with a focus on embedding a love and appreciation of physical activity.
Our ethos #DAREtobeactive is achieved not just in lessons but also in extracurricular activities. The PE department encourages students to never give up and keep trying to be the best person they can be, showing enthusiasm for the subject while instilling respect for others and themselves.
Students require their PE kit in every single lesson, even if they cannot take part in the lesson due to illness or injury. Students will take part as a coach, official or will be performing observation and analysis. This ensures an inclusive environment, which helps students acquire an important sense of belonging as well as building the self-confidence and self esteem they need to achieve and make their first steps towards higher education and employment.

Over the school year students will study a mixture of invasion sports where the students can use a range of tactics and how to play against them, individual sports such as athletics and gymnastics where they will develop correct techniques and analyse performances as well as taking part in outdoor and adventurous activities which develop problem solving skills, trust and teamwork.
The PE department also offers extra-curricular activities for the majority of the curriculum that is taught. Students will have the opportunity to represent King’s Academy Binfield and Oakwood in local and district competitions. Our aspiration is to enter national competitions.
