Physical Education - Introduction

district-sports-essex-2016-34

At Key Stage Three, students take part in a wide variety of different activities. These might include football, netball, rugby, badminton, rounders, basketball, dance, trampolining and athletics. Students are encouraged to work on the quality of their practical performance, whilst also increasing their knowledge of the rules of the activity they are participating in. In all year groups at Key Stage Three, students will have opportunities to focus on their leadership and team work skills which are integral parts of the curriculum.

At Key Stage Four, students can opt to take Physical Education as a GCSE and will study alongside other GCSE students for five hours a fortnight. They will take part in a wide range of practical activities, as at Key Stage Three, but they also study the theory side of Physical Education in some detail. This generally takes place in a classroom and topics studied include diet, training methods, the skeletal system and the cardiovascular system. Students complete two pieces of coursework as part of their final assessment, along with assessments in their practical performance and a written exam.

For those students who do not opt for GCSE Physical Education, the key aim is to maximise participation so there are opportunities to try sports that may not have been offered at Key Stage Three.

Additionally, there is an extensive extra-curricular timetable offered to all students throughout Key Stage Three and Four.
