Context

 

The PE department consists of four specialist teachers. The department has a large six badminton court sports hall, an astro-turf pitch, an outdoor pursuits centre and extensive field space all around the school. The department aims to provide the best possible sporting experiences for all young people across and beyond the curriculum.

Curriculum

 

Students in all year groups are completing work connected to the GCSE PE OCR exam board. This is so from an early stage students learn how to lead a healthy, active life to develop their physical, social and mental health. These students will be assessed on the number grade 1-9 system. A progressive curriculum is in place, where students study the same sports each year to develop their skills, techniques, tactics and decision making ability, although GCSE PE teaches additional activities. There is a strong focus on developing practical skills and students will be assessed on their practical skills in lessons but also their academic skills when completing the six assessment competencies of learning.

Students in year 8 can opt for GCSE PE, which is an engaging course linked to body systems, health and fitness, training and commercialisation of sport and the sports industry. This course is ideal for students who are passionate and seek a future career in sport.

Assessment

 

Students will complete an action research task at the end of each half term to assess their progress against all assessment competencies (demonstrate knowledge and understanding, apply, evaluate, analyse, create and design).
