Sport is provided for all, but participation in sport is not the end goal for our schools physical education programme.
By providing a balanced curriculum, focussed on individual challenge and learning alongside personal and social skills, will provide a positive experience in PE, and ultimately make our pupils physically capable and active throughout their lives. Many will find and succeed in sport, but the objective of physical education is to develop movement patterns, coordination, cognition and locomotive skills.
In order to better engage less active pupils, interventions such as change 4 life sports clubs are employed at after school clubs. These clubs provide a safe, engaging and challenging environment for less confident, able or engaged pupils to develop their physical and social skills away from their perceived pressures in PE or sports clubs.
The Academy has run workshops in Streetdance and Cheerleading as well as hosting Change4Life clubs, football, and bikeability sessions. We also offer after school clubs that lead towards competitive competitions such as a netball, rounders, gym and Goldenmile.
Hazel Leys Academy has been awarded the School Games Mark Silver Award.
