Physical Education Curriculum Overview

PE Student Voice March 2017

Merseyside Athletics Championships

Congratulations to all 26 pupils who took part in the Merseyside Athletics Championships. Knowsley Central had a great day in the sunshine winning more medals than ever before. Well done Team Knowlsey!

JCA Condover Hall

This year saw many pupils from KS3 go on a residential to Condover Hall in Shropshire. It was my favourite ever residential as the pupils were an absolute pleasure to go away with and really pushed themselves over the 3 days to have a go at the challenging activities.

Merseyside Kurling Champions

Congratulations to the succesful KS3 Kurling team, who after winning the Knowsley Championships in January, beat 15 teams from all over Merseyside to become the county champions!! What an achievement. You should all be so proud!

National school sports week

During national school sports week a number of pupils took part in lunchtime sporting challenges including the ‘Keepy up challenge’, ‘tennis ball wall toss’ and the ’30 second skip’. Well done to everybody who took part.

The Prince William Award

Knowsley Central School has recently started the Prince William Award with all of the pupils in KS3. Through The Prince William Award we hope to help our pupils build their character, resilience and confidence to empower them to “be their best”.

At the heart of this aspiration are the brilliant instructors. These ‘heroes in schools’ embody the Service values and understand the importance of teamwork, resilience and self-discipline. They are the complementary role models that many children need working alongside their teachers.

The 5 key themes

The key themes enable young people to develop an understanding of their individual character, their character within a team and developing leadership and responsibility.

  1. Personal Development
  2. Relationships
