PE Curriculum


Year 7 and 8 are following a programme of study which works on the skills needed to successfully complete the KS4 courses. This mastery of skills means that students will be able to embed the skills needed for success at KS4.

Students develop the following skills across a variety of different sports

  • Practical skills performance
  • Tactics and strategies
  • Evaluating and Improving Performance
  • Physical Wellbeing and Fitness
  • Teamwork and Leadership.

KS4 Core Curriculum

Year 9, 10 and 11 follow a core PE curriculum where the aim is to inspire students to pursue a lifelong, healthy, active lifestyle in sport. Students participate in wide range of sports. The key purpose of KS4 sport is to instill students with life skills they will need when leaving the academy including leadership, communication and critical thinking skills.  

How do we assess students in PE?

Each year group will be assessed according to the whole school assessment calendar.


In KS3 students are given feedback throughout their sports each half term to help them develop their performance. Students are then assessed at the end of a unit of work on their performance within the sport but also their knowledge of the sport they have covered to allow all students to make progress within PE.

KS4 BTEC Sport

Each assignment is split into a number of tasks that have clear criteria which the students need to meet to achieve a Pass/Merit/Distinction. Each task has a hand-out and hand-in date. There is then a period of time where the teacher will return the work marked to the student and they have a set period of time to make improvements and re-submit.

Unit 1 is the only examined unit:

·         This unit has the same grades as internally assessed units

o   Level 2 – Pass, Merit, Distinction

o   Level 1

o   Unclassified

·         This unit is externally assessed using an onscreen test

·         Edexcel sets and marks the test

·         The assessment must be taken under examination conditions

·         The assessment is 1 hour
