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.

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.

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.
