Welcome to PE

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.

PE Y8 options evening 22-2-21 - Task 4.mp4

Example Work

RO42 Principles of Training

Task 1

Describe what the following topics are IN SPORT, give a definition and a sporting example for each:

  1. Progression

It is a process where you gradually work up to a harder stage / taking your time with the activity.

Once the body has adapted to the activity you should demand for a higher or harder level of that activity making the body get used to the amount of activity you are achieving and the amount of pressure you are pushing yourself.

Example: When I did weight lifting I started b lifting 5kg and worked my way up 7kg. The individual is constantly pushing themselves to get at a higher point. Also, sprinting different distances to become faster and to be able to pace yourself, your body will then adapt to this.
