PE and Sport

INTENT

In Physical Education we intend for pupils to develop competence to excel in a broad range of aerobic activities, that they are physically active for sustained periods of time, and that they engage in physical activity outside of school and lead healthy, active lives.

Pupils are given opportunities to build on and embed the physical development and skills learned in key stages 1 and 2, become more competent, confident in new techniques and activities.

They are taught to understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work. They should develop the confidence and interest to get involved in exercise and physical activity out of school and in later life, and understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.

The activities on offer in our schemes of learning are recognised, traditional activities, with well-established opportunities to seek participation outside of school.  We have also considered staff expertise and the popularity of activities with pupils within our years of teaching experience with girls. There has also been thought to link with external exam specifications so that pupils’ knowledge and understanding of fitness and training can be developed during key stage 3, ready to access assessment criteria set by exam specifications.

Throughout Key Stage 3 pupils will develop the fundamental skills necessary to develop their technique and improve their performance.  Pupils will learn to choose, combine and perform specific exercises with fluency, consistency, accuracy and quality.  A continual development and refinement of the necessary skills will contribute to producing a successful performance.

In KS4 Physical Education we intend for pupils to develop their technique and improve their performance in competitive activities.

Pupils will evaluate their performances compared to previous ones and demonstrate improvement across a range of physical activities to achieve their personal best. They are encouraged to take part regularly in sports and activities outside school, engaging in physical activity and leading healthy, active lives.

Pupils are given opportunities to build on and embed the physical development and skills learned in key stages 3, become more competent and confident in displaying skills, techniques and activities.

They are taught to understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work. They should develop the confidence and interest to get involved in exercise and physical activity out of school and in later life, and understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.

Particular attention is paid to exam specifications in the selection of the activities to enable pupils to access assessment criteria and develop their performance.

The activities on offer in this scheme of learning are recognised, traditional activities, with well-established opportunities to seek participation outside of school.  We have also considered staff expertise and the popularity of activities with pupils within our years of teaching experience with girls.

Throughout Key Stage four scheme of learning pupils will develop the fundamental skills necessary to develop their technique and improve their performance.  Pupils will learn to choose, combine and perform skills with fluency, consistency, accuracy and quality.  A continual development and refinement of the necessary skills will contribute to producing a successful performance.

Marking, recording and assessment at KS3 National Curriculum

At KS3, pupils’ work is assessed by the teacher using levels of achievement SA1-SA25. The aim, where possible, is to make the targets achievable.  These are teacher and pupil led emphasising the positive elements of a pupil’s work, yet where necessary indicating where and in what ways improvements could be made.  In this, there may be occasions where a particular element of a pupil’s work will be targeted in the criteria for each activity e.g. knowledge of tactics, skills achieved and those that need more practice time. To gain maximum benefit from this it is anticipated that pupils would be informed of the quality elements that the teacher is looking for. Peer and self-assessment are considered essential elements of assessment for learning.

From the point they enter St. Anthony’s, pupils will be continually assessed by a series of Key Assessments.  Unlike the day to day assessment, these assessments aim to provide a picture of absolute attainment in relation to the National curriculum which have been summarised in to St. Anthony’s levels. The aim is to assess in a variety of ways to allow as large a number of pupils as possible to achieve positively.

Each Key Assessment will form a part of the formative assessment process of each pupil and will contribute towards the overall summative assessment at the end of KS3.  The Subject leader will monitor and assist in the scrutiny of the End of Stage Assessment level.

Key Stage 4 Core Lessons

In Years 10 & 11 Pupils will participate in a range of activities from the following list:

Netball, Football, Basketball, Cricket, Rounders, Tennis, Badminton, Trampolining, Dance, Gymnastics, Health-Related Fitness and Athletics, & OAA.

Assessment at Key Stage 4

Marking, recording and assessment are vital in identifying what has been learned by each pupil and they form a central thread through her course at Key Stage 4. They assist in matching set tasks to the abilities of individual pupils. They have a central role in reporting pupils’ achievements to both them and their parents.

All parents receive a report on their daughter and an invitation to a parent’s evening once a year.

Marking, recording and assessment at Key Stage 4

At Key Stage 4, pupils’ work is assessed by the teacher using achievement and target grades.  These emphasise the positive elements of a pupil’s work, yet where necessary indicating where and in what ways improvements could be made. Peer and self-assessment are considered essential elements of assessment for learning.

It enables pupils to develop and apply their knowledge, while also developing a range of relevant practical, communication and technical skills. The qualification is aimed at everyone who wants to find out more about the sport industry. Pupils study three mandatory units, covering the underpinning knowledge and skills required for the sports sector:
  • Unit 1 – Fitness for sport and exercise
