PE & Sports
The role of the TQEA PE Department, is to contribute to the overall education of young people by helping them lead full, valuable and healthy lives.
Our goal is for our students to develop physical competence as well as find enjoyment in physical activity, with a view of promoting lifelong participation. We promote valuable personal qualities such as confidence, perseverance, initiative, ability to work with others, leadership, independence and concern for others. This is achieved through a broad and balanced programme students will be taught to be physically active, developing co-ordination, control and body management. They will be involved in problem-solving, communication with others and team-building which can assist developing social attitudes and behaviour. Students will be encouraged to understand the importance of a healthy life style through participation in and enjoyment of a variety of activities and environments.
Aims At TQEA all lessons are structured in line with the new National Curriculum for Physical Education, and our students are taught through a structured sports frame. This is to encourage excellent theory and practical knowledge and understanding to strengthen and support GCSE PE and KS4 leadership qualifications. (Please See Areas of teaching) Departmental Short Term Goal:- To ensure that students enjoy their time in PE and accesses a personalised curriculum through high quality teaching, facilitation and learning in PE lessons. Departmental Long Term Goal:- To ensure that every student has access to a diverse range of activities to develop interest and maximum participation to encourage lifelong learning, leading to students gaining a qualification in Physical Education.

Outside the classroom – Extra Curriculum
We compete in a number of sports fixtures over the year, students who attend clubs are selected to represent TQEA. Students will be told about fixtures to write in planners, however, due to the high number of fixtures, we tend to not send letters out for each fixture. OSA2 forms, filled in at the start of the year by parents/ guardians are confidentially held for PE fixtures, so we have vital contact details in case of an incident during a fixture.
From September to June, the PE department provide a wide range of before school, dinner time and after school clubs. These are FREE OF CHARGE to attend. Each half term, extracurricular time tables will be altered to fit with changes of sports/ fixtures. These timetables are displayed both in the PE department, in all tutor classrooms and will be updated on the website.
Student’s attendance at fixtures also commands a basic understanding of behaviour and attitude. If a student cannot hold up these elements, they may be requested to be picked up and/ or removed from a team.
We offer our students an extensive sports leadership and volunteering programmes through the TQEA Sports Leadership Academy. The Leadership Pathway has been developed to allow students of all ages to receive training and vital experience in a range of sports leading, as students may love sport, but not love playing each sport! Over the last few years we have developed strong cohort of student sports leaders who have gone on to lead & coach in the community, host events with local clubs and complete sports apprenticeships with school and with the north Warwickshire Partnership.
Sports leaders are regularly deployed to host family of schools events for up to 14 primary schools including a mini Olympics, key stage 1 Multi skills festivals, netball, and hockey tournaments. TQEA sports and elite sports leaders also officiate at other local primary competitions such as cross country races, Hockey, football, netball, mini tennis competitions.
