Pupils in key stage 3 will have 2 hours of PE each week, studying 2 activities each half term.
At key stage 3 pupils will aim to
- develop skills and techniques
- develop their ability to make and apply decisions
- develop their physical fitness and understand the need for a healthy and active lifestyle
- develop their ability to evaluate and improve performance
In all year groups pupils will be assessed on their ability to perform a variety of skills and techniques and fitness levels. They are assessed throughout each activity, receiving an end of activity assessment. Pupils will be provided with oral and written feedback. Pupils will receive consistent feedback and assessment from their peers as well as being expected to provide accurate self-assessment.
In line with the school marking and feedback policy each pupil will have a PE journal. In this they will record “what went well/even better if”, they will respond to written and verbal feedback from their teacher and the teacher will comment in the journal at least twice in a half term.
