Learning at Key Stage 3
At this stage, learners are encouraged to build on their Key Stage 1 and 2 experiences, becoming more competent, confident and expert in their techniques, applying them across different sports and physical activities. Learners are encouraged to be able to analyse their own performance and that of other learners, offering them feedback where appropriate. Learners are also encouraged to develop their skill level and interest in physical activity by embracing extra-curricular activities on offer inside and outside of school.
