Year 9

 

Subject Content 

 

 

 

 

 

The PE curriculum provides a balanced and varied physical activity programme and, where possible, gives equal opportunity to boys and girls. At KS4 the curriculum is broadened so pupils experience activities other than the major sports. Students are encouraged to experience the different roles that sport offers:

  • Performer
  • Official
  • Coach


When practically participating the PE Department seeks to encourage the learning process to take place through action, sensation and observation.

The department encourages all students to be physically active, to plan and evaluate their performances across the curriculum.

Therefore, each student should not only be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding mainly through physical actions, but also through written and verbal forms.

In turn they will improve their skill acquisition, knowledge, personal achievement (by goal setting) and terminology of the activities studied.

  • Participation

Background/Extended Learning

Specification

Subject Content 

These sport qualifications offer learners a fantastic chance to develop different types of skills through largely practical means; communication, problem solving, team working, evaluation and analysis, performing under pressure, and formulating written findings from practical investigation are all transferable skills which can be learned and assessed through these qualifications and utilised in many other educational and employment settings.

Both qualifications have been designed with practical and engaging ways of teaching in mind and enable learners to:

  • develop a range of skills through involvement in sport and physical activity in different contexts and roles
  • develop their ability to apply theoretical knowledge to practical situations
  • gain a better understanding of the complexity of different areas of sport and the sports industry increase their awareness of different ways to stay involved in sport and physical activity and of different careers and roles within sport.

Skills Taught

 

 

 

 

 

The Cambridge Nationals in Sport Studies take a more sector-based focus, whilst also encompassing some core sport/Physical Education themes. Students have the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge about different types of sport and physical activity, skills development and sports leadership to their own practical performance.

They will learn about contemporary issues in sport such as funding, participation, ethics and role models, and sport and the media. Students will develop an appreciation of the importance of sport locally and nationally, different ways of being involved in sport and of how this shapes the sports industry.
