GCSE Physical Education

Introduction

Our GCSE in Physical Education equips students with the knowledge, understanding and skills to develop their own performance in sport. They develop their understanding of socio-cultural influences on participation in physical activity, psychology in sport and the benefits of physical activity to health, fitness and well-being.

 

The examined components will provide the knowledge and understanding which underpin the non-exam assessment (NEA). The NEA within this specification allows learners to explore a range of activities in the role of performer, including both team and individual activities. Learners will also analyse and evaluate performance in a chosen activity as part of their NEA.

 

In Year 10 students explore how health and wellbeing impact the body and its systems, and how to create a training programme for a specific sports performer. In Year 11, students extend this to look at how the body works in relation to sports performance and how socio-cultural influences have an impact on our world of sport and exercise. It also gives students the opportunity to develop and apply competencies and techniques in a range of sports. Student will partake in practical assessment across three sports which contributes 30% toward the final grade.

 

The GCSE PE curriculum has many cross curricular links to Science and English. We believe students are prepared to complete the course in Y10 & 11 due to gaining a broader understanding of core subjects. The curriculum is inclusive and we encourage students with physical disabilities to take it as there are a number of different sports and adapted sports that enable participation e.g. Boccia. The quality of our core PE curriculum in Yr 7-9 prepares students for the practical assessment with an emphasis placed on individual sports such as Badminton, Handball, Table Tennis and Climbing. Large numbers of students go on to choose climbing as one of their assessed sports and with the skills acquired through the Y8 and 10 core PE curriculum, achieve impressive grades.
