Physical Education Department

Curriculum Intent: 2019-2020

The Curriculum intent of the Physical Education department is outlined below. These are the principles that shape our intent, implementation and intended impact of our subject area on the school Curriculum. We believe that every pupil, regardless of ability or background, should expect the same quality education in every lesson taught by every teacher across our curriculum team in order to achieve things they never thought they could.

Our vision and values for our Subject are:

 

 

 

 

The Physical Education curriculum in both KS3 and KS4 is aimed at developing pupils so that they are able to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.

Students will have the opportunity in a wide variety of activities to improve their core and advanced skills during team and individual activities, observe and analyse performances, gain knowledge and understanding rules, regulations and correct terminology.

Through the curriculum the students will also gain life skills that take them beyond the PE lessons including leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative and communication

Our rationale for teaching what we teach is as follows:

 

 

 

 

We use a practical approach in KS3 to develop the skills needed to improve our student’s lifestyle. We look at the current trends of sports, events and the local area when selecting the sports the students are going to take part in and the time of year they are going to do these activities.

In KS4 we give ownership of the activities to the students and help them choose the right activities for them to maintain and improve their lifestyle.

 

We offer two options at GCES to gain the best outcomes for our students.

 

The principles that shape our Key Stage Three Curriculum is:

 

 

 

Pupils have little opportunity to experience a variety of team and individual sports. To understand the skill level of year 7 we will complete a module of games for understanding to observe their skills in a number of sports. Throughout KS3 students will undertake key fitness tests twice in the year to show how their fitness levels, so they can monitor their healthy lifestyle and monitor their core skills progress.

The principles that shape our Key Stage Four Curriculum is :

 

 

 

 

The KS4 courses we offer enable pupils to develop the skills and knowledge gained at key stage 3 and deepen their understanding to enable them to successfully continue onto a range of post 16 courses.

GCSE PE and OCR Cambridge Nationals Sports Studies

In KS4 the GCSE and Cambridge Nationals course allows pupils to continue to develop their practical skills and build up a wealth of knowledge of the theoretical aspects of Physical Education. Pupils will discover various sectors and courses available to them if they want to continue studying Physical Education.

 

Our Pupil Promise:

You will see the following in our lessons:

 

 

 

 

 

 

We promise that all pupils will receive a well-balanced curriculum, driven by high quality delivery and assessment.  Pupils will be fully engaged in challenging activities in practical and theory based lessons and we will ensure we demonstrate a good understanding of the skills and knowledge relating to the context of the subject. Pupils will have the opportunity to develop personal and social attributes in extracurricular activities and competitions.

We will drive all pupils to succeed to achieve the highest grades available.
