PE

The PE Department aims to provide and promote high quality opportunities for every student to participate in sports and physical activity to encourage lifelong healthy lifestyles; this will be achieved by providing a variety of activities and learning experiences for students to learn from and  by focusing on:  maintaining and/or increasing the interest and enjoyment in physical activity, promoting health and fitness for current and future lifestyles, encouraging students to develop independence, leadership and responsibility, increasing an understanding of the body and what it is capable of doing, as well as developing skill level and  tactical awareness.

In Key Stage Three PE all students have three timetabled lessons per week; two lessons are dedicated to the study of the term’s main activity (one per term), with the additional lesson a week being dedicated to fitness/body awareness throughout the year.

Year 7

Year 7 PE students will explore six units of study, and the additional fitness/body awareness unit, including: Fundamentals, Netball, Football, Badminton, Athletics, and Striking and Fielding.

Assessment

Assessment is an ongoing process and is based on a combination of practical demonstration and completion of the Activity Assessment Sheets that are used mid-way through a unit and at the end of the unit.  Alongside the Activity Assessment Sheets there is also the fitness booklet that will support assessment decisions made. Students will be assessed using the Key Stage Three assessment matrices for PE. PE teachers will use the assessment matrices to support the grading of students throughout the year. We will always encourage interested students to increase their participation beyond lessons and into extra-curricular and outside sports clubs.

Extra-Curricular Activities

There are a range of extra-curricular activities available throughout the school year, which provide an opportunity to be involved from a participation level to competitive fixtures.  Opportunities are available for students to compete in Football, Netball, Rounders and Athletics, with more clubs and fixtures being added as opportunities arise.

Suggested Extension Activities

Extra-curricular clubs and outside sports clubs will provide excellent extension activities; it is suggested that a wide range of activities is participated in to allow transferrable skills and understanding to develop.  Taking opportunities to watch competitive sports at all levels will also allow a deeper understanding to develop.

BTEC Sport/GCSE PE Resources

On starting the course in Y10 students will be expected to provide a ring-binder folder to keep all of their classwork, homework, and for BTEC, assignment briefs  in.  There will be an option to purchase BTEC/GCSE endorsed workbook and revision guide to prepare for the exam.  

As lessons will be a mix of theory lessons and practical lessons, students are expected to have all of the required and correct equipment/kit for lessons; it is important that students come prepared to their theory lessons with pens, pencils and their planner, and for practical lessons they ae required to always have the correct PE kit.  

Assessment – BTEC Sport

Due to the nature of the course being portfolio based, students will be given set assignment briefs to work towards the completion of the work required, which is assessed against the exam board assessment criteria (Pass, Merit and Distinction level criteria). Assessments are reported to parents/carers at intervals during the academic year.

Assessment – GCSE PE

Students are regularly assessed in class to monitor progress.  Students will be monitored both in the theoretical elements (examination content) through in-class assessments, and practical activities (NEA) against the exam board NEA criteria.  The combined scores from the  two exams and the NEA (3 practical activities, and analysis and evaluation assessment) will provide a 9-1 grade.

Home Learning

All homework for BTEC Sport/GCSE PE is designed to support what has been worked on in class, provide further opportunity to apply new knowledge, revise in preparation for exams, or, in the case of BTEC Sport, support completion of portfolio work.
