Practical Sports Science
The mission statement and ethos in the Haydon School Physical education Department follows the core Haydon values which promote and encourage the students to show Respect, Excellence, Community, kindness and Perseverance. Through these values we encourage and motivate the students to take up lifelong participation in sport and exercise through an engaging and diverse curriculum. In our curriculum we teach students about how the human body works, the psychological process behind sport and how to live a healthy lifestyle. All activities include the development of physical literacy and skill based performance through our theory through practical lessons.
We want all our students to feel motivated, confident, demonstrate physical competence along with having knowledge and understanding that establishes purposeful physical pursuits as an integral part of their lifestyle.There are also occasions throughout the year for students to learn, discuss and explore careers within the Physical Education area and jobs connected to PE.
We have a vastly experienced department both in teaching years and specialists in all areas of the course. Staff wellbeing is of high priority so ensuring that we work collaboratively and trust in each other has led to a well respected, hard-working department.
At Haydon we pride ourselves with ambitious and high achieving lessons where we set challenging expectations for staff and students in order for our students to achieve, thrive and be successful. ‘Achieving excellence in a caring community’ #wearehaydon
