Physical Education



At Rosehill School, we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to our student’s physical and emotional development and health. The physical education curriculum aims to increase student’s self-confidence through an ability to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations.


The PE curriculum aims to:


  • To provide opportunities for vigorous exercise and the development of core physical skills throughout the school week
  • To acknowledge the importance of early developmental skills of fine and gross motor skills, agility, balance and coordination, which are the foundation stones for all other learning
  • To create challenging and engaging activities, appropriate to each pupils’ individual needs and abilities
  • To develop a sense of fun, and talent spot individuals
  • To foster an enjoyment, and promote positive attitudes towards an active and healthy lifestyle, fitness, health and hygiene
  • To develop increased confidence and competence in a wide range of activities
  • To foster an appreciation of physical exercise and movement activities to increase wellbeing and participation
  • To maximise on pupil’s individual abilities and self-esteem, and to promote working in pairs and teams
  • To develop an ability to adapt and apply knowledge, practical skills and concepts in a variety of movement-based activities
  • To develop communication skills, to promote effective co-operation and to communicate positively towards others
  • To promote independence and safety in different areas of the school
  • To teach pupils to plan and evaluate their actions and performance
  • To give our pupils the opportunity to try new activities, develop new skills and grow in confidence through an outdoor education programme
  • For our post-14, to extend and enhance leisure and recreational opportunities within and beyond the school setting
  • To follow the Olympic and Paralympic legacy by continuing to follow the values and ethos throughout the school and maintaining a knowledge of our country’s sportsmen and women, including major sporting events.




The Physical Education Programme at Rosehill, includes but is not limited to, weekly PE lessons, morning running time, KS2 swimming, rebound therapy, music and movement, gymnastics, sensory circuits and classroom/dept-based activities such as Activate and Wake & Shake. All pupils are able to be involved in PE and can succeed at their own ability level, enabling them to progress in gross motor skills, which support many required to develop skills for adulthood. In addition, we aim to develop an enjoyment of activities, which will lead to improved lifelong health and self-confidence as well as social interaction.


Rebound Therapy has developed into a very popular lesson. Used as part of PE lessons as well as forming an important part of the day for those pupils on an individual timetable, Rebound Therapy (using the trampoline) is an extremely motivating activity. Its strengths are many; It is used to facilitate communication, movement and coordination skills, promote balance, increase or decrease muscle tone, promote sensory integration, and improve fitness levels. It is beneficial for all abilities from those who prefer to be seated when practising skills to those who can aspire to different types of jumps and routines.
