Curriculum Intent and Information

P.E 2020

 

Core P.E

Years 7 – 9

Aims: For students to have fun in lessons, gaining an interest and developing skills in individual sports as well as being physically active for sustained periods of time.

Within every lessons teachers encourage the understanding and display of a variety of attributes which will help the students in all subjects and daily life. These include communication, empathy, independence, creativity.

One in four of the student’s lessons will be a “fitness” lesson.  Within these students experience and learn about a wide variety of fitness types and training methods.

 

GCSE/BTEC preparation:

Fitness lessons particularly link with these courses. Staff ensure that language is used relating to the specifications, giving the students a head start on the courses.  Sports are also repeated in years 7 – 9 ensuring that students have several “strong” sports that they could be assessed in for GCSE.

 

Years 10/11

Students are generally grouped according to their confidence and competitiveness. Groups can be single sex or mixed gender.  Students are given a greater degree of choice as to their activity.  Lessons are designed to be fun, active and again develop key life skills such as independence and communication that were introduced in KS3

Students assess themselves on these life skills every term and design a SMART target for the new activity.

Leadership skills are developed and used from year 8 with groups of trained leaders regularly running competitions for primary school children within the partnership.

 

GCSE P.E

We have recently re-arranged the order of topics taught in order to better link with the written analysis assessment,(10%).  This analysis document is now “chunked” into three sections. This has enabled completion by Christmas of year 11, raising the standard and easing pressure at the end of the course.

Formative assessment takes place on a regular basis, with students receiving feedback following most lessons and acting on this at the start of the following lesson.

Students are tested approximately half termly, following the completion of each unit.

From the beginning of the course, students create their own revision materials
