Key Stage Four

Years 10 and 11 students follow a practical course with some also selecting GCSE PE to study in the options areas.  Students also have an opportunity develop their leadership skills in several sports.

Assessment Summary for parents

Students are assed in four practical activities and monitored for development. They need to be aware of the rules and how to change tactics depending on the activity. Theory is measured in end of unit tests and their development with analysing their performance.

 

Students are assessed in each unit they complete in PE through the use of video feedback sessions to peer assessment work. The students will then look to set targets for how they can improve further in PE and what skills they can develop in the next topic.

 

Sport across the College

Sports day is a major event in the calendar and students have the opportunity to compete and show haw they have been developing in PE during the year. Each student has the opportunity to compete for their house and form to try and win the house and year trophies. Each year sports day takes place at Longford Park Stadium.

 

            

Our facilities include a gym, Tone-Zone, sports hall, tennis courts, outside basketball court and a field on-site. A wide and balanced curriculum is taught, in mixed gender classes but set by ability. 

Extra-curricular opportunities for PE are wide.  Students have lots of opportunities to improve and experience new sports and take part in various competitions. There are many leadership development opportunities available for the students with the work with our feeder primary schools.

 

Some of our students have gone on to become outstanding sportsmen/women. Amongst them, Curtis Obeng who signed for Manchester City on schoolboy forms and has since gone on to play for City’s reserve team.  He played all levels of youth football for England, including the FA Youth Cup Final.  He now currently plays for Swansea.

If a student is unable to take part, he/she is expected to still bring kit so that they can be utilised in the lesson in other roles. The school PE kit is mentioned in the uniform section.

 

All students bring in full PE kit to participate practically in all lessons

  • Change quickly  
  • Self-discipline throughout lesson
  • No jewellery or chewing gum  
  • Long hair tied back

 

Sport has always been important to us – we have three aims:

Firstly:   to encourage all youngsters to enjoy sport and recognise its importance for health-related fitness.

Secondly:   the development of individual and team performances.

Thirdly:   for students to become all round sports performers who have a wide range of key skills in PE.     

The opportunities are many. Clubs include: Fitness, Badminton, Dance, Gymnastics, Basketball, Rounders, Football, Netball, Table Tennis…. whilst teams are fielded in Athletics, Basketball, Football (boys and girls), Netball, Rounders and Cross-country.

The College competes in many competitions and performs well with some of our students going on to achieve regional honours. The college also endeavours to give students the opportunity to develop skills outside of the classroom; as the Year 11 experienced at Edale this year.
