Welcome to the CAN PE department, our vision is:
“For every pupil at City Academy Norwich to understand how to lead a healthy active lifestyle and to be inspired to be physically active in order to lead a healthy, happy and successful life beyond school.”
We are the only secondary school in the county to have achieved the AfPE quality mark with Distinction and we have achieved numerous health awards. We benefit from some of the finest PE facilities in the region and have access to UEA Sportspark as well.
We pride ourselves on being inclusive to all by building outstanding relationships with your child and finding out what motivates them to excel. We promote participation for all and encourage excellence.
We give pupils as much opportunity as we can to choose what activities they study as they go up through the school so they have ownership of their PE curriculum.
We offer a wide range of enrichment activities such as clubs, fixtures, trips, the Duke of Edinburgh award, UCAN and inter house competitions.
We promote healthy eating, active travel and active play as much as possible so that your child can be the best version of themselves.
Student leadership is very important to us. We offer a number of leadership qualifications and we have a sports council that meet each term to inform decision making around PE issues.
We host the Norwich School Sports Partnership and we work closely with them to develop greater opportunities for all our pupils both at CAN and within our feeder primary schools.
Each year culminates in a fantastic sports awards evening where we celebrate our pupils brilliant achievements.
We look forward to continuing to build an outstanding relationships with you and your child so that they can thrive at CAN.
