Physical Education and wellbeingBack
"Never say never because limits, like fear, are often just illusions." michael jordan.
Throughout PE students will develop lifelong skills, such as, resilience, independence and leadership, whilst developing their physical, social and mental wellbeing. These skills are important for success in sport as well as wider life and in the academy. These are harnessed through a broad range of physical activities giving students the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sports.
In PE students will work on skills needed to play a range of sporting activities competitively but will be assessed through three different stands: 1. Performance (Practical ability in each sport/activity) 2. Knowledge and understanding (anatomy, and physiology Y7, components of fitness and sporting values Y8, and principles of training, methods of training and sporting values Y9) as well as the rules and regulations and tactical play of each sport. 3. Interacting (incorporating the learner dispositions, healthy behaviours, leadership, and life skills). Students will use these skills to improve their learning across the curriculum and beyond.
In BTEC sports (2022 completion) students complete 4 units across the programme which allows a mixture of practical and theory lessons. Unit 1 will focus on fitness and exercise for sport, unit 2 will focus on practical sports performance, unit 3 will focus on applying the principles of training and unit 5 will focus on the sports performer in action.
In BTEC sports (2023 completion) students complete 4 units across the programme which allows a mixture of practical and theory lessons. Unit 1 will focus on fitness and exercise for sport, unit 2 will focus on practical sports performance, unit 3 will focus on applying the principles of training and unit 6 will focus on leading a sports activity.
Through healthy active lifestyles students develop life long skills, like resilience, independence and leadership skills, through a variety of physical activities. They also gain an understanding of what is required to ensure there are also looking after their wellbeing. Learning through physical activity but transferring it to academy and everyday life.
Historically in BTEC Sport students work extremely hard allowing them to surpass their target grades. We create a highly motivated culture where students develop employability skills that they transfer to their everyday life and also support their academic progress.
