Physical Education National Curriculum states that schools should offer;
” A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.”
Key Stage 3
We deliver all aspects of Key Stage 3 in Years 7 and 8. Throughout KS 3 we aim to embed the physical development and skills learned in key stages 1 and 2, so they become more competent, confident and expert in their techniques, and apply them across different sports and physical activities.
They should understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work. we aim to develop their confidence and interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school and in later life, and understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.
Outlined below are the activities that the students will participate throughout KS 3 and we compliment this with an ongoing extra curricular program which changes on a termly basis.
Year 7 and 8
- Health Related Fitness
- Skill Based Learning
- Team Sports (e.g. Football, Handball, Netball)
- Individual Sports (e.g. Badminton, Table Tennis)
- OAA and Athletics
We then use standardised assessments which allows us to offer appropriate pathways for pupils to learn PE in KS 4
Key Stage 4
In KS4 pupils will follow one of the possible pathways depending on ability and preference. This pathway will be decided after consultation between staff and student.
