The PE Department at The Tiffin Girls’ School prides itself on developing high levels of physical literacy and engaging learners in all aspects of health and wellbeing through a wide ranging and tailored curriculum. The Physical Education Department promotes positive opportunities to participate fully through learning new sports, applying knowledge inside and outside the PE classroom, developing skills in leadership, officiating and coaching. Curriculum learning is supported by a vast network of extra curricular opportunities which extend from interhouse events, in school representation on the school and borough teams, to community involvement in local clubs and national competitions. While participating fully in lessons and the extra curricular programme is an integral part of school life at Tiffin Girls’, the PE Department caters for all ability ranges, providing specialist coaching to gifted and talented pupils, as well as recreational clubs for those seeking to develop their health and wellbeing.
PE students benefit from a broad range of expert knowledge from staff in wide ranging fields. Students are encouraged to develop a positive attitude to sport, their own physical literacy as well as understanding components of a healthy and balanced lifestyle. At Key Stage 3, students gain a broad yet indepth knowledge and understanding of curriculum sports, as well as gaining regular opportunities to lead, officiate and work in small groups to build self esteem. At Key Stage 4, students choose from a wide variety of sporting options from Archery to Zumba which allow them to tailor their curriculum to match their individual needs. Those choosing GCSE PE are given additional opportunities to complete units on Personal Survival as well as develop their theoretical understanding of physiological and sociological elements of leading a healthy balanced lifestyle.
