Physical Education KS3

Physical Education KS3

Across all schemes of work in PE, we will aim to promote the 4 key areas set out in the National Curriculum Programmes of Study to ensure that all students:

  1.  Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  2. Are physically active for sustained periods of time
  3. Engage in competitive sports and activities
  4. Lead healthy, active lives

What do students study?

Students in Years 7 - 9 take part in 4 lessons a fortnight, and classes follow sports/activites in 3-week blocks. These activites could include:

  • Netball
  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Badminton
  • Volleyball
  • Rugby
  • Benchball/dodgeball
  • Athletics
  • Tennis
  • Rounders
  • Cricket
  • Orienteering

Year 9 students also benefit from one theory lesson amongst the four. During these lessons, students gain greater insight into the benefits of physical activity for physical, emotional & social health. We also look in more detail at how the different body systems work to support performance. This approach helps students make more informed choices regarding GCSE PE, whilst educating all students about the role of physical activity in supporting health and well-being.

How are students assessed?

Students are continually assessed throughout KS3 across 3 areas:

  •  My performance (understanding and application of skills and tactics)
  • Working with others and applying knowledge (evaluation of performance and influence on others)
  • Theory (mainly assessed in Year 9, including skeletal and muscular systems and physical training)
