Hello, I am Mr Henfield and I am the PE subject leader here at Hayfield Lane.....
We study PE to develop the physical, social and emotional well-being of our students. At Hayfield Lane we aim to provide an engaging and challenging curriculum that allows (all) students to achieve beyond their expectations. To offer excellent opportunities to develop a healthy, life-long love of physical activity and to develop a high quality teaching and learning environment where both staff and students enjoy working hard together to achieve success. We want all students to feel they belong as part of a team, believe in their healthy potential and become as physically, socially and emotionally well as they can be. We do this by developing the attitudes, skills and knowledge required to be a leader and provide memorable experiences throughout a student’s journey within Physical Education.
The aim of PE sessions builds on the whole school ethos by enabling students to:
Believe in their potential and Achieve as highly as they can.
Students will experience a variety of opportunities and experiences that support this vision, challenging them both inside and outside the classroom. They will focus on improving their fitness, health and well-being through knowledge and application. Leadership skills take a strong emphasis throughout the key stages, with students able to take on additional roles than just a performer. They can complement this by experiencing a robust programme of awards, qualifications and memorable learning experiences. Students will develop physical, technical and tactical sporting skills; enhanced by an embedded focus on mental skills such as resilience, determination and confidence. We aim to ensure all students leave the school possessing the skills, motivation and knowledge to enjoy a lifelong engagement with sport and physical activity. We trust that our broad and innovative PE curriculum will allow students to develop their love of movement and sport well beyond their time with us.
