Physical Education


SUBJECT OVERVIEW

The aim of Physical Education is to develop students’ competence and confidence to take part in a range of physical activities that become a central part of their lives, both in and out of school and help them to develop a pattern of exercise which they continue to enjoy into their adult life.
 
Within PE we offer a high-quality curriculum which enables all students to enjoy and succeed in many different kinds of physical activity.

SCHEMES OF WORK

KEY STAGE 3

The KS3 PE Curriculum is a broad and balanced programme which allows students to develop skills in a variety of invasion games, net and wall games, field striking and individual activities. Students will develop skills in accurate replication, exploring and communication, evaluating and improving and developing skills and tactics. They follow a range of units and are assessed every 10 weeks. KS3 PE is taught in mixed ability groups and resources are differentiated to support all students.

KEY STAGE 4

KS4 students have 1 hour of core PE a week which focuses on developing skills as well as participation. At the heart of our KS4 programme is getting all students involved in at least 1 hour of physical activity a week, therefore we offer a wide range of activities. Students are particularly keen to opt into Football, Badminton, Table Tennis and Fitness.  In Year 10/11 this has increased participation. Students receive a range of invasion games, net games and individual activities and the focus is on developing existing skills as well as improving teamwork, communication, leadership skills, physical well-being and reducing the stress that our students sometimes experience.
