Physical Education [PE]
Physical Education at Cambourne Village College is an opportunity for pupils to experience a broad range of sports and activities that support their physical, social and emotional development. Within PE, we look to enhance not only our pupils’ sporting skills but their technical knowledge and understanding, as well as their coaching, leadership and officiating skills. We place huge value on teaching teamwork skills, on positive participation and attitude, on teaching the importance of physical activity for wellbeing – and, perhaps above all, we strive to make sure that all pupils develop an approach to sport and activity that will see them being active for the rest of their life. That being said, the curriculum information within these pages focuses on practical performance and theoretical knowledge.

NHS guidelines of physical activity state that children and young people aged 5 to 18 should:
- aim for an average of at least 60 minutes of moderate or vigorous intensity physical activity a day across the week;
- take part in a variety of types and intensities of physical activity across the week to develop movement skills, muscles and bones;
- reduce the time spent sitting or lying down and break up long periods of not moving with some activity, and aim to spread activity throughout the day.
