Key Stage 3 Physical Education
In line with the National Curriculum for PE, students in Year 7 will acquire a number of skills and techniques in a variety of sports. The sports the students will be assessed in will include rugby, netball, and football. In addition, all students have 6 lessons of skiing. Students in Year 7 are expected to show they can apply skills and techniques accurately and consistently. Year 7 allows students to try new sports as well as building on those sports they have already done in Year 6, and as such is the foundation for all their work here in years to come.
In PE students will continue to have their skills assessed in a variety of sports which will include rugby, netball, football and have the opportunity to continue developing their skiing. They are expected to show they can apply the skills, techniques and tactics of these sports accurately and consistently. They will also complete a unit on health related fitness which develops their understanding of how exercise affects their body. Students will be assessed every half term to track their progress as they work towards their end of Key Stage level.
All students in Year 9 will build upon the skills and techniques learnt in Years 7 and 8. These skills will be assessed in a variety of sports which will include rugby, netball, football and have the opportunity to continue developing their skiing. In this year students will be taught to become more tactically aware, to take the initiative and thus have a greater effect on the outcome of the game. This will highlight their ability to apply the skills, techniques and tactics accurately and consistently.
Year 9 GCSE PE
Students will analyse 6 sports in detail to help develop their knowledge and skills needed over the course, whilst at the same time start to look at the theory behind their sporting performance and how exercise affects their body.
PE offers a number of extra-curricular clubs ranging from traditional team sports: rugby, football, netball, basketball and handball to individual sports such as badminton, trampolining and fitness.
Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural Development
In PE students will develop a variety of skills throughout Key Stage 3 which will help to develop their holistic development. Sport has the power to motivate, focus and bring out the best in people. The skills that participating in PE and sport can develop include being more self confident, improved self esteem, become a good team player, strengthened peer relationships, development of self discipline and an improved level of physical fitness.
Students are required to bring the correct kit to every lesson and participate fully in every sport. Rugby students will need a gum shield and we would advise studded boots. Skiing will incur a voluntary contribution payment.
