KS3 PE

During KS3, pupils are set according to their sporting ability and will take part in lessons and be assessed in the following activity areas:

 

  • Invasion games (Rugby, Football, Netball, Hockey)
  • Net Games (Badminton, Volleyball, short tennis)
  • Striking/Fielding Games: (Rounders, Cricket, Softball)
  • Fitness
  • Gymnastics
  • Dance
  • Athletics
  • Outdoor Adventurous Activities (orienteering/ problem solving)
  • Sport Education

 

During each activity block the students are taught skills, tactics and strategies to develop their knowledge and understanding of the activity areas.  At the end of the activity block the students take place in an ‘assessment’ lesson, whereby a grade is achieved for each activity.

 

During the assessment lesson, the class teacher will be looking for evidence of:

 

• Acquiring and developing skills

• Selecting and Applying skills, tactics and compositional ideas

• Evaluating & improving your performance

• Knowledge & understanding of fitness and health.

 

 

 

 

Year 7

Mrs Grimwood, the KS3 PE Manager, will visit the year 6 students in all our major feeder schools during the summer term to spend time with them and to gain an insight into the student’s practical ability.  This information aids the setting process.

 

The students spend their first few weeks completing a range of fitness activities and fundamental skills to enable the correct setting to take place.

 

Year 8

Students follow a similar curriculum to year 7, taking part in a range of activities (highlighted above) over eight activity blocks during the course of the year.

 

Year 9

The students follow a range of activities, similar to that of year 7 and 8, but it also allows for their transition into KS4 PE lessons.

KS4 Core PE

During KS4 students follow a very similar curriculum to that of KS3 in structure.  However, the focus is on ‘lifelong participation’ whilst at the same time developing the skills and understanding in a range of activity areas.

 

Setting in KS4 is done with a similar approach to KS3 however any students studying GCSE PE will automatically be placed in set1.  This allows the set one group to be taught and assessed accordingly to the GCSE practical criteria.

 

Within KS4 students can also apply to complete Leadership courses run at lunchtimes.  Within the courses the students work within the feeder schools or other coaching organizations to develop experience of working with young children.  We currently offer Level 1 and 2.

Extracurricular PE

Extra curricular activities play a vital role in any good school and exercise a tremendous influence on the general attitude and well-being of pupils who participate. The school regularly provides opportunities for pupils to develop their talent and interests in clubs and societies. We hope parents will encourage their children to take full advantage of the opportunities, which are offered.

 

We have an excellent reputation for school sport and have many successful teams in both local and regional competitions. Many pupils have the opportunity to develop their talent through clubs and practices within school and also through specialized coaching in external clubs, with whom we have links.

 

The P.E. department also organizes Sports Leader courses for pupils to develop their coaching ability and to use their skills in local junior school and sports clubs.

Meeting these challenging targets will represent outstanding progress that is significantly above the National Average. We hope that in some circumstances, students will exceed these targets.

 

The PE targets are created from Key stage 2 results for English and Maths. It may be found that some students are either significantly above or below their targets when current grades are awarded within PE.
