During each year, pupils will be assessed through the Balanced, active and healthy lifestyle (BAHL) Assessment: Conducted three times per year (at the start of each term). Multistage Fitness Test, Illinois Agility Test, Sit & Reach Flexibility Test, 1 Minute Muscular Endurance Test, 10m Shuttle Sprint Test, Grip Strength Test.

Topic Specific Assessments: Each topic will be assessed at three stages (1; baseline at the start of term, 2; interim review at half-term and 3; summative assessment at the end of term). Each Assessment will have two sections: 1. Core skills and 2. Competitive Situation.

At the end of the year, pupils will be have reported cumulative grades based upon their end of topic assessments for the range of nine topics covered within the programme of study.


 

 

GCSE 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.

 

Pupil Involvement

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.  

 

What will I study?


The new GCSE 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 GCSE PE enable pupils to understand the reasons why we do things in sport, why some people out perform others, both mentally and physically.  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 PE 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 demands of the practical activity specifications are extensive and therefore pupils must be participating in regular physical activity. The course is unsuitable for those pupils who do not participate in competitive sport and extracurricular activities in school.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

 

AS/A2 Level Physical Education for OCR

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire and develop theoretical knowledge relating to all aspects of sport and Physical Education. The course also requires a high standard of analytical and practical skills in relation to sports performance.

 

Theoretical Course – Modules & Content

 

  • Applied Anatomy and Physiology– musculo-skeletal system, cardio-respiratory system, neuromuscular system, energy systems.
  • Exercise Physiology– diet and nutrition and their effect on physical activity and performance, preparation and training methods in relation to maintaining and improving physical activity and performance, injury prevention and the rehabilitation of injury.
  • Biomechanical Movement– biomechanical principles (newton’s laws, force, centre of mass), levers, analysis of movement, types of motion, fluid mechanics.
  • Skill Acquisition– skill continuums and transfer of skills, principle and theories of learning and performance, how skill classification impacts practice and learning, use of guidance and feedback, memory and information processing.
  • Sport Psychology– Individual aspects of performance (personality, attitudes, anxiety, aggression), team/group dynamics, goal setting, attribution theory, self-efficacy, leadership, confidence, stress management.
  • Sport and Society– Factors leading to the emergence of modern sport through the globalisation of sport in the 21st Century, the impact of sport on society and society on sport, sporting ethics and deviance, talent identification and elite performance, the impact of commercialisation on physical activity and sport, sport and media.
  • The role of technology in physical activity and sport– The use of technology to analyse physical activity and sport, the development of equipment and facilities in physical activity and sport, the role of technology in sport for performers and the audience.

These modules account for 70% of the AS and A-Level courses and are assessed via a written examination in the summer exam period. The specific details of the course are being finalised by OCR and therefore may be subject to change. At the present time we expect to teach a combination of the modules listed above; non-bold text relates to AS content and bold text relates to A2 content.

 

Analysis and Evaluation of Performance

You will be assessed in your ability to observe, analyse and evaluate a sport performance. In this task your verbal response skills will be tested, alongside your ability to design a viable training program to improve the performer. This is worth 15% of AS/A2 course.

 

Practical Performance

Practical Assessment - your sporting ability will be assessed as a player/performer or coach in one sport. There is a specific list of sports available for assessment. Check GCE Physical Education activity list on the DfE website for more details. A higher standard is expected to reach the very top grades. This is worth 15% of the AS/A2 course.

Recommendations

“A-level PE at Hagley has allowed me to continue my close relationship with the PE department. Mr Behan, Mr Barratt and Mr Rich have supported me with my work throughout the year, and have given up their free time to provide revision and mentoring sessions for the group/individuals. As well as this, the PE department have continued to make Wednesday afternoons enjoyable by offering a range of sport, both competitive and recreational, and also allowing us to request any sport of our choice!”

Sam Anderson 2014

“So far, my time as a Hagley PE student has been great. I have found the A-level course really interesting and the teachers have been really supportive. I would definitely recommend PE at Hagley! I am actually on roll as a Haybridge student, but everyone at Hagley has been very welcoming and friendly J”

Erica Harris 2014

 


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 at Hagley are highly experienced and dedicated, and they build excellent relationships to ensure our students develop and achieve their potential. The Physical Education (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. We offer a full programme of competitive fixtures in the following sports; 1st XV Rugby Team, 1st, 2nd Football Teams, Basketball team, Girls Netball, Rounders and 1st X1 Cricket team. In addition to these sports fixtures, we offer a wide range of recreational activities for those 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, zumba, 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.
