Our Curriculum Intent

Curriculum Intent - P.E. 

The PE department at Three Rivers Academy will be striving to be the best in the country. The department will bring out the best of all students by connecting them to the power of sport and physical activity, so that they are motivated to participate both now and in the future. We will facilitate this by delivering high quality physical education where students can compete and experience a wide variety of sport and activities. Our goal is to provide all students with challenging and stimulating learning experiences that install an ethos that hard work is the foundation for success, ensuring that all students gain a positive experience of PE. The vision of the department is to have every student in school actively participating in extra-curricular sport. By getting students to take part in at least one extra curricula club, we aim to instil a positive ethos of a “sporting habit for life”.
