Year 7, 8 and 9 Physical Education

Students are set in mixed ability groups and follow a varied and exciting curriculum incorporating all areas of the national curriculum. Students undertake two different practical activities each half which is supplemented by extracurricular activities at lunch time and after school. Activities they undertake will include athletics, badminton, basketball, cricket, dance, gymnastics, football, H.R.F, netball, rounders, rugby, tennis and volleyball. Students are expected to work in both groups and on an individual basis and focus on skill mastery and the application of skills in competitive situations.

In addition, students are asked to peer and self-assess during all PE lessons as this is a fundamental development tool for understanding performance in physical activity. Students are assessed formatively throughout each unit of work and receive a summative level at the end of each activity module. This grade contributes to an overall grade for PE that is reported at three separate occasions throughout the school year.
