Key Stage 4 Physical Education

The central purpose of Physical Education remains to develop health, physical skills and personal and social qualities through physical activity. This will be achieved through involvement in a range of physical experiences in individual, group and team situations. 

Physical Education aims to promote physical development, to develop a range of skills giving better co-ordination and self-confidence, to develop stamina and strength, to create an appreciation of the concepts of fair play, loyalty to the team and good sportsmanship, and to develop an understanding of the importance of exercise in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. 

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.

YEAR 9
Pupils receive a single lesson of PE and a double lesson of Games per week in Year 9. 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 Year 9 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. Increasingly the pupils will be given opportunities to lead parts of sessions both in terms of officiating and organisation.

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:
1.    Developing skills in physical activity
2.    Making and applying decisions
3.    Evaluating and analysing

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

YEARS 10 AND 11
Pupils will be offered a range of activities which will lead to improved performance, personal achievement, understanding and increased knowledge. A wider range of options in KS4 allows pupils to select activities that they are interested in, increasing the chances that they will continue in these activities beyond their school days.

Years 10 and 11 have two single periods of Physical Education and two double periods of Games in one fortnightly cycle. The following table shows the activities undertaken.
