Key Stage 3 Physical Education

Year 7 and 8 pupils receive a single lesson of Physical Education and a double lesson of Games per week in Key Stage 3. In PE they are grouped in their Form and in Games are selected by ability into squads. Many opportunities to participate in physical activities exist within the school through the extra-curricular programme and all pupils are encouraged to join them. The Key Stage 3 curriculum is designed to allow our pupils to compete against other schools in a number of activities as well as to give them a broad range of experiences.

Assessment

Pupils are assessed in activities that cover outwitting opponents, accurate replication, performing at maximum levels and exercising safely and effectively. The following attributes are observed to demonstrate progress:

  • Developing skills in physical activity
  • Making and applying decisions
  • Evaluating and improving

The pupils will be given a level from 9 - 1 in each activity that they undertake. These are an averaged to give an overall level for PE. 

Aims

  • The principles of fair play, sporting behaviour in victory and defeat and high levels of effort are strongly emphasised by the department.
  • The department aims to not only develop the performers of the future, but also the coaches, managers, officials, physiotherapists, psychologists and a whole host of other professions associated with physical activity.
  • The overriding aim of the department is that by the time the pupils leave the school they have discovered at least one physical activity that they will continue to be involved in, whatever the level and whatever the capacity.
