PE

Our PE curriculum provides our students with the ability and confidence to take part not only as participants, but also as leaders. They develop their core skDSC 0064ills across a number of sports, understanding both individual and team games, and learning how to devise, plan and implement tactics within a game as both a participant and as a leader. We aim to provide students with the skills and knowledge in a range of sports, as well as within the subject as a whole, to ensure that they are able to enhance their health, build their character, improve their well-being and to find an element of sport which they enjoy, whilst also understanding how physical conditioning relates to improved performance. We encourage all our students to take part in our extra curricular programme which offers opportunities beyond the classroom, as well as in a range of different sports. We provide high-quality coaching for our students to be able to improve their skills and through the enhancement which we offer through our extra-curricular programme, we foster within our students a life-long love of sport and fitness. 

PE Curriculum Journey

PE makes a major contribution to the overall education of young people by helping them to lead full and valuable lives through engaging in purposeful activity. We hope that through your PE lessons and extra-curricular sport you will find an activity that you enjoy and want to continue participating in after you leave school.

At Key Stage 3 students follow the Core Learning PE MapObjectives in PE for each year group

The KS3 scheme of work is devised to develop students’ knowledge and understanding as well as providing enjoyment and willingness to participate in all activities. We encourage all students to evaluate their own performance which enables them to develop tactics and ideas in all areas.

During their journey at Key Stage 4 Level each student will use their knowledge, understanding, skills and values and build on this to develop an maintain their performance in physical activities whilst gaining an understanding oT&L Policy Theory PE Lessonsn how it can benefit their health, fitness and well-being. 

Key Stage 5 students will improve as effective and independent learners and as critical and reflective thinkers that will refine their ability to perform effectively in physical activity and sport by developing skills and techniques.  

PE at GCSE and A Level consists of two externally - examined papers and two non - examined assessment components.  Components one and two will be assessed in May/June in any single year.  Components 3 and 4 may be assessed at any point during the course, with marks submitted by the centre prior to moderation.  Moderation will take place in the same year as the written examination. 

KS3 / KS4 Practical Assessment

All students have 2-PE-lessons per week and at the start of the course will undergo a two-week baseline testing programme at the start of Year 7 to ide4ntify their level of current achievement in line with National Curriculum guidelines. This also includes a health-related-fitness programme and skill-related-fitness tests. Year 7 students follow a varied and challenging programme, consolidating Key Stage 2 work and establishing skills, knowledge and understanding relating to the Year 7, 8 & 9 programme of study. Activities are taught in units of work. On completion of a unit a numerical grade will be awarded by staff based on the students practical ability in that activity.

This plan continues into Year 8 and Year 9, where students will continue to experience a broad and balanced curriculum with a spiralling level of difficulty from the previous year.

Key Stage 3 Pass - Sport 

The Physical Education Pass-Sport enables students to track practical progress through all of the different PE activities during Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 of Key Stage 3. During practical lessons, students will have chance to record progress in the Pass-Sport during the PE lesson.

Assessment and Tracking 

Students will track their own progress from one activity to the next by using the Practical Assessment Tracker. Students will be assessed in 5-key areas of PE within each activity:

  • Practical SkillsIMG 0139
  • Knowledge of Activity
  • Leadership – S P O R T
  • Analysis of Performance (AOP)
  • Attitude and Effort

PE staff will expect students to be aware of the Core Objectives for each activity. Students will be able to look for these activity displays in the changing rooms and in our teaching areas. It is also important to continually Self-Assess (SA) fitness levels. Whenever a fitness test is completed, students will Self-Assess their own progress by writing:

  • O = Outstanding Progress
  • G/ME = Good/Meeting Expectations
  • RI = Requires Improvement
  • U = Unsatisfactory

Feedback about students progress will be given by PE staff during lessons, at parents evening and reports.

At the end of each academic year, PE teacher’s will indicate whether you are in-line with year group expectations, by explaining who is; Outstanding, Good/Meeting Expectations, Requiring Improvement or Unsatisfactory in that activity.

Coaching and Leadership Roles 

Within every PE lesson, students will be expected to sT&L Policy Practical PE Lessonshow a variety of leadership skills. Students will be organised into groups of 4-7 and each lesson you will need to perform a different coaching task to benefit your group or team.

Here are the following coaching roles:

S = Skills Coach: With the guidance from the teacher, students will need to observe and then deliver a skill to the group, correcting technique to ensure the skill is performed correctly.

P = Preparation Coach: Responsible for planning and leading a group warm up, to include a pulse-raiser, mobility and stretches suitable for the activity.

O = Organisation Coach: Leads the group to ensure everyone follows instructions and guidelines of the activity. They’re responsible for organising equipment and communicating with the other coaches.

R = Revision Coach: Reminds the group of the previous lesson and leads a suitable skill specific part of the warm up. They will need to remember any coaching points from the previous or the current lesson.

T = Tactical Coach: Responsible for organising the team during the game situation and suggesting ways to be successful – positions, substitutions, game plan, officiating.

Edexcel A-Level Physical Education Course Outline

From the beginning of the course, students will be marked at A-Level standard, so do not expect your marks to be as high as GCSE straight away. A copy of the marking policy will be given to students for each section.

Homework will be set for every modular aspect taught by each member of staff. Tasks will include past exam questions, background reading or research.

Homework will be given a deadline (usually the following week or lesson). If students find the work difficult, please seek advice.DSC 0018

Records of homework submission are kept by staff and are called upon for:

•        Parents Evenings

•        Reports

•        Progress checks

•        References

Checks will be made to ensure work is up to date and any missing work has been caught up. Regular monitoring of files will occur at random points throughout the year, therefore students must ensure that all work is present, up to date and correct.

The PE Staff expect students to take an active part in the extra-curricular programme and you will need to select one activity which students can assist with. Students will then help run the practices as a coach/umpire alongside the PE Staff.

Every week, students will need to practise your chosen practical options, by either attending the activities on the extra-curricular timetable or by making your own arrangements at your sports club. All other sessions will be theory lessons.

Students can wear A-Level PE Kukri kit when they have a PE lesson for the full day – however this must be the correct SGS Kukri PE kit.

Key Stage 5 Learning Objectives

Units of Study

The Physical Education course will follow the Edexcel/Person Qualification for A-Level PE. This is a full 2-year A-Level Course and there is no 1-year AS- PE option.  During the course students will have the opportunity to learn:

Applied Anatomy and Physiology

Students will understand the anatomical/structural and physiological/functional roles performed in the identified systems of the body.

Exercise Physiology and Applied Movement Analysis

Students will understand the importance of diet and nutrition pre-, during and post-physical activity. Students will also understand how to prevent and rehabilitate from injury, and be able to demonstrate an understanding of movement analysis through the use of examples to include linear motion, angular motion, projectile motion and fluid mechanics.

Skill Acquisition

Students are required to show an understanding of the nature and development  of skills in sport. This understanding could be enhanced and developed through applied practical experiences in the role of either coach and/or performer.

Sport Psychology

Students will have an understanding of the role that sports psychology has in facilitating optimal sporting performance of an individual athlete, sports teams and individuals in the teams. Central to this topic will be the ongoing debate offering explanations between either nature or nurture or the interaction of both.

Sport and Society

Students will understand the dynamic relationship between sport and society. They will understand the parallels between societal changes and sport and will utilise this knowledge and understanding to consider historical and contemporary events and trends  and potential future developments. Students will understand the relationship between media and sport and the role of social media.

Career Paths in PE and Sport

This course seeks to provide a bridge to Higher Education from Key Stage 4 and from GCSE Physical Education for those who have followed a course to that level.

PE can be linked with a variety of other subjects at A- Level. The subjects taken alongside PE can influence the choice of career path within sport.

Links With Art Links With Science / Maths
  • Teaching
  • Leisure Management 
  • Sports Development
  • Coaching
  • Professional Sport
  • Sports Public Relations
  • Sports Journalism 
  • Sports Medicine / Physiotherapy 
  • Physiotherapy 
  • Fitness Profession
  • University Lecturing 

PE and Sport at Higher Education

At Higher Education level, there are many degree courses  which  involve  the  study of Sports  Science, Sports Studies and Physical Education. The focus of study will vary from course to course. A-Level PE is a valuable asset to possess before embarking on any sports related degree course, all of which cover a number of the topics on the A-Level syllabus. The practical content of each course varies considerably, and the emphasis placed on sporting ability as part of the selection procedure varies from institution to institution.

Practical Options

The course demands are such that much of the physiological and psychological content of the course can be taught through practical activities. These activities will vary according to the nature of the theory and all students will be expected to participate. Practically, students will be assessed in one activity area at A-Level. They are also required to fulfil a role as a performer or coach in their chosen sport. There is a wide range of activities that can be offered for assessment. Please speak to a member of PE staff if you need any further information.

Sixth Form Sport at Sale Grammar School

Sixth Form students have the opportunity to attend any of the extra-curricular clubs that take place. We currently have Sixth Form netball, hockey, football and rugby teams.
