Key Stage 3 PE Course Information Page

Course Name : Physical Education

 

Purpose of study

A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It will provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way that 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.

Aims

The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives.

Pupils will be taught to:

  • use a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in direct competition through team and individual games [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders, rugby and tennis]
  • develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports [for example, athletics and gymnastics]
  • perform dances using advanced dance techniques within a range of dance styles and forms
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activities which present intellectual and physical challenges and be encouraged to work in a team, building on trust and developing skills to solve problems, either individually or as a group
  • analyse their performances compared to previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best
  • take part in competitive sports and activities outside school through community links or sports clubs.

Assessment (including homework)

Baseline assessment takes place at the start of Year 7 and then pupils are assessed at the end of every activity on a half termly or termly basis.

Assessment will be recorded in a personal assessment booklet which will include all of the relevant information for your daughter and will be used frequently in lessons. This process ensures that pupils are aware of their level of attainment and know how well they are progressing towards their target level.

The grading of each pupil will be based upon:

  • use a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in direct competition through team and individual games
  • develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports
  • perform dances using advanced dance techniques within a range of dance styles and forms
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activities which present intellectual and physical challenges and be encouraged to work in a team, building on trust and developing skills to solve problems, either individually or as a group
  • analyse their performances compared to previous ones and demonstrate improvement

Your daughter will be expected to complete homework tasks related to the rules and regulations in sport, planning warm-up activities and applying the use of sport specific terminology.
