PE & Sport
HeadStart’s PE department has exceptional teachers with a vast amount of experience from across the globe. They are specialists in a number of sports which adds to our diverse curriculum, allowing students to develop, grow and become passionate about sport and physical education.
Our curriculum allows students to learn a range of skills and attributes that go beyond performing. They develop skills in leadership, collaboration and resilience that can be implemented into all aspects of school life. Our aim within PE is to provide students with lessons that are engaging, challenging and enjoyable to ensure all our students at HeadStart continue to participate in sport and physical activity beyond the classroom.
‘Throughout the school, teachers’ subject knowledge and understanding of how students learn are strong. Relationships between students and teachers are positive. The ratio of qualified teachers to students, especially in the early years and lower primary classes, is high. ‘Deputy’ teachers, who are fully qualified teachers in their home countries, support class teachers. Due to their expertise, they make a significant difference to the rates of progress that students make. Teachers know students well and assess them accurately. This enables teachers to plan work that matches the ability of individual students and caters well for their varying needs.’ Education Development Trust (EDT) Accreditation Report, June 2017
