Programme of Study

See atttached document (Table 1)

 

Grading

Grading in Physical Education follows the 9-1 system used across the school. Pupils are graded at the end of each half term in the practical activities as outlined in the KS3 programme of study. The final grade (end of year attainment grade) will be calculated based upon the pupil’s highest individual sport, team sport and an additional sport from either category. This is the practical activity assessment structure for OCR GCSE PE which has been adapted for use at Key Stage 3. For this reason, the present predicted grade (PPG) reported at different stages throughout the year, may not give an accurate reflection of the pupil’s overall progress in the subject. The PPG would only reflect the practical activities taught and assessed by that stage of the year. For example, by the end of the Autumn term, the PPG for a boy in Year 7 would be calculated based upon assessments in basketball and table tennis. By the end of the Spring term, his PPG would also include assessments in badminton and volleyball, and by the end of the Summer term it would also include assessments in cricket and tennis. In addition, an ongoing football assessment will be completed to produce the final grade.


 

 

GCSE Physical Education

What will I study?

The GCSE Physical Education specification provides an exciting opportunity for our pupils. The combination of practical performance, sports analysis and academic study provides pupils with a challenging and valued qualification.  The theoretical aspects of the course enable pupils to explore many aspects of Sport Science, including anatomy and physiology, sport psychology, biomechanics and socio-cultural issues in sport.  Pupils also delve into the ethical considerations behind the use of performance enhancing drugs and also gain an understanding of the effect of physical activity and diet on health and sport performance.

 

Non-Exam Assessment

The non-exam assessment contributes to 40% of the total marks:

1.      Three practical performances: 30%

2.      Evaluating and analysing performance: 10%

The practical assessments are ongoing throughout the course. The practical grades and video evidence are then submitted in the Spring Term of Year 11.

 

Exam Assessment

01: Physical factors affecting performance: 30%

02: Socio-cultural issues and sports psychology: 30%

 

A total of two examination papers (2 x 1 hour) taken at the end of the two year course.

 

Additional Support available to pupils

The Physical Education department provide additional support sessions for pupils who require assistance with the theoretical aspects of the course throughout the academic year. There are also extracurricular clubs, fixtures and sports events across a broad range of the activities covered within the practical specification of the course.

 

Other useful information

The course is unsuitable for those pupils who do not participate in competitive sport and extracurricular activities in school. The extracurricular sport participation data, academic banding and assessment data in Key Stage 3 Physical Education will be used to inform suitability for the course. The programme of study for the course is detailed below.

Physical Education Cambridge National Certificate in Sport Studies (J813)

 

What will I study?

The provision of the Cambridge National in Sport Studies offers an exciting opportunity for our pupils to gain a high quality vocational qualification in sport. Pupils have the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge about different types of sport and physical activity, skill development and sports leadership of their own practical performance. They will learn about contemporary issues in sport such as funding, participation, ethics and role models, and sport and the media. Pupils will develop an appreciation of the importance of sport locally and nationally, different ways of being involved in sport and of how this shapes the sports industry. A combination of the above will provide our pupils with the opportunity to gain a recognised qualification, which will provide the basis for further study within sport and physical education, and career paths within the sports industry.

 

Two Mandatory Units

Unit R051: Contemporary Issues in Sport – External 1 hour examination – 60 marks.

Unit R052: Developing sports skills – Three practical assessments – one team activity, one individual activity, one officiating role – 60 marks.

 

Two Optional Units

Unit R054: Sport and the media – Centre assessed tasks – 60 marks.

Unit R056: Developing knowledge and skills in outdoor activities – Centre assessed tasks – 60 marks.

Core Physical Education

 

Participation in Physical Education continues throughout Years 10 & 11 for all pupils. Pupils will continue to develop the skills that they have gained in Years 7, 8 & 9. The Key Stage 4 programme of study will follow a broad range of activities linked to our School Games Competitions. This will enable pupils to experience a competitive environment and participate in other physical activities designed to improve their personal health and fitness. It is our aim that Core PE will provide an opportunity for pupils to enjoy sport and physical activity without the pressure of formal assessments.

 

Pupils are expected to prepare appropriately for activities and should have a good understanding of the correct techniques, rules & tactics. Pupils will develop their understanding of the importance of a healthy active lifestyle through a variety of activities. Pupils are involved in the analysis of sports performance and they will take on a variety of roles including coach, official and performer. Pupils will have the opportunity to conduct themselves in a competitive environment whilst displaying character building values such as sportsmanship, fair play, teamwork and honesty. Pupils are also encouraged to take part in the wide range of extracurricular opportunities available at Key Stage 4 to ensure that they access at least 2 hours of high quality physical education and sport per week.  The programme of study is detailed below.

Key Stage 5 Enrichment – Physical Education

In the Sixth Form at Hagley, there are many exciting opportunities for our students to expand their horizons by participating in a range of activities. The teaching staff in our Physical Education (PE) department are highly experienced and dedicated, and they build excellent relationships to ensure our students develop and achieve their potential. The PE department offers a lively programme of Sixth Form Games and students are encouraged to involve themselves with one or more of the sports teams. Where numbers allow, we offer a full programme of competitive fixtures in the following sports; 1st XV Rugby team, 1st, 2nd Football teams, Basketball team, Girls Netball team and Rounders. In addition to these sports fixtures, we offer a wide range of recreational activities for those who wish to get active in a less competitive setting. The range of activities include golf, ten-pin bowling, badminton, squash, kayaking, basketball, table tennis, multi-gym, rowing, mountain biking, aerobics, tennis, softball, volleyball, dodgeball, indoor football, ultimate frisbee and benchball. Wednesday afternoon is set aside for Sixth Form Games, which is compulsory for Year 12 students (unless they have opted to undertake work experience placements) and for those studying A2 Physical Education in Year 13.

 

Our Sixth Form students represent the highest level of sport within our school and over the years they have provided excellent role models for our younger pupils. Within the PE department, students have the opportunity to gain experience of coaching, organizing and officiating sports events/trips for pupils in the lower school. These opportunities are ideal to support UCAS applications, coaching qualifications and awards (DofE), in addition to helping develop a whole range of transferable life skills. For each of the main sports, the PE department elects a club captain to help organise fixtures/events and encourage Sixth Form students to get involved. Perhaps the most exciting of all being the ‘Old Boys’ football fixtures, where our former Sixth Form students are invited back to challenge the current 1st and 2nd football teams.
