I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
– Michael Jordan
I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life a champion’.
– Muhammad Ali
I’m proud of the way I’ve dealt with setbacks. It’s hard when you feel down and you think, ‘Why is the world doing this to me?’ But you have to pick yourself up again. That’s what makes you a better athlete.”
– Jessica Ennis Hill
I’m like a ‘comeback kid’ – you can’t keep me down for long! It is really important that we get more women doing exercise and being active, and those that have taken up boxing or boxing training will definitely find that it has a really positive impact on their health, fitness and well-being.
– Nicola Adams.
The purpose of the Physical Education curriculum at Rushey Mead Academy is to enable all students to access physical activity and competitive sport, breaking down barriers to participation and inspiring all scholars to succeed and excel.
Our PE department extends many varied opportunities to compete in sport and engage in physical activities that help to build character and to embed core values, such as fairness and respect. The curriculum aims to ensure that all scholars develop the ability to excel in a broad range of physical activities and are physically active for sustained periods of time. PE is a vehicle for social change, enriching lives through sporting experiences, increasing the social and cultural capital of our scholars’ and inspiring scholars to lead a healthy and active lifestyle with skills that will allow them to succeed in life after school. There are extensive opportunities to compete in sport and other activities that help to build character and to embed values such as fairness and respect.
The curriculum aims to ensure that all students develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities and are physically active for sustained periods of time so that they develop a love of sport and a clear understanding of the need to continue to be active into adulthood.
At Rushey Mead we want our students to “DIVE” into PE;
Develop competence and confidence across a range of sports and physical activity.
Increase knowledge of sport and physical activity.
Value physical activity and prepare all scholars for success in life.
Enthuse and empower all to engage in physical activity for life.
