PE Curriculum Overview 2019-20

During their time here at Notley, we want our students to gain an appreciation for sport and realise the importance of leading a healthy active lifestyle. We introduce a theoretical element into Key Stage 3 lessons to enhance the students knowledge and understanding of sport and prepare those students that will continue onto our GCSE course. Alongside this, we highlight the importance of ‘life skills’ such as resilience and communication to name but a few, and how these can be demonstrated through sport. The grid below gives an overview of the curriculum for this academic year.


Year 7

During Year 7 students follow a programme in which they will be taught a wide variety of sports and activities including handball, netball, rugby, badminton and basketball to name but a few. Students will also begin to learn the importance of life skills and how can be accessed through PE and transferred into everyday life.

Year 8

The students in Year 8 are taught the same areas of experience as in Year 7, with a particular focus of developing their skills and knowledge. They will be asked to focus on some areas of coaching and self-management, including leading warm ups for small groups.

Year 9

In Year 9 students follow a programme which allows further skill development and creates a sense of independence. In a range of sports and activities students will be asked to lead warm ups and parts of the lesson, and encouraged to analyse their own performance and that of their team, developing appropriate feedback. Students will receive one hour per fortnight of theory to help support their knowledge and understanding of both PE and sport. This theory knowledge will help with future courses in either PE or Science.

Year 10

GCSE PE: Students are assessed on their practical performance in 3 sports, where they will receive a score out of 35. Students also follow a theory strand where they learn about the role of the bones muscles and joints, the practical and theoretical application of health related fitness and the key body systems. There are two written exams at the end of the course, and there is a course work element to this course too.

Core PE: Students follow a programme of participation where a variety of sports are offered throughout the year. In the summer term all students have the opportunity to follow the Sports Leaders Award, or to continue with a participation element.

Year 11

GCSE PE: Students are assessed on their practical performance in 3 sports, where they will receive a score out of 35. Students also follow a theory strand where they learn about the role of the bones muscles and joints, the practical and theoretical application of health related fitness and the key body systems.
