Secondary Curriculum

Curriculum outcome

“Every student who graduates from BSKL should have the confidence and a level of physical competence to remain involved in some form of physical activity or exercise for the remainder of their adult life”.

Curriculum aim

A high-quality Physical Education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

The national curriculum for Physical Education aims to ensure that all pupils:  

  • Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities  
  • Are physically active for sustained periods of time  
  • Engage in competitive sports and activities
  • Lead healthy, active lives

The online PE Curriculum can be found here.


The core values we assess at BSKL during PE lessons are:

  • Knowledge and understanding
  • Engagement
  • Fitness
  • Sportsmanship
  • Leadership
  • Skill Set (40)

Importance of assessment

Assessment is a key component of education because it helps students learn. When students are able to see how they are doing in a class, they are able to determine whether or not they understand the learned material. Assessment can also help motivate students to improve on the skills and qualities they have or have been developing.
