Key Stage 3

LESSON CONTENT
Pupils should build on and embed the physical development and skills learned in key stages 1 and 2, become more competent, confident, and expert in their techniques, and apply them across different sports and physical activities. They should understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work. They should develop the confidence and interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school and in later life and understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.
Pupils should be taught to:
• use a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in direct competition through team and individual games such as, Invasion Games (Netball/Football/Rugby)/Net and Wall (Tennis/Badminton/Table Tennis) /Striking and Fielding (Rounders/Softball/Stool Ball/Etc) /Athletics (Track and Field Events)/Gymnastics and Trampolining/OAA.
• develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports [for example, athletics, trampolining, and gymnastics]
• take part in outdoor and adventurous activities which present intellectual and physical challenges and be encouraged to work in a team, building on trust and developing skills to solve problems, either individually or as a group
• analyse their performances compared to previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best
• take part in competitive sports and activities outside school through community links or sports clubs.” – National Curriculum 2014
*As part of the National Curriculum Dance is developed and included, this area is taught within expressive arts. However, we do touch upon the compositional aspects and development of skill within gymnastics and/or trampolining.

Key Stage 4 Physical Education

LESSON CONTENT
“Pupils should tackle complex and demanding physical activities. They should get involved in a range of activities that develops personal fitness and promotes an active, healthy lifestyle”.
Pupils should be taught to: 

• use and develop a variety of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in team and individual games [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounder’s, rugby, and tennis]
• develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports, [for example, athletics and gymnastics], or other physical activities [for example, dance]
• take part in further outdoor and adventurous activities in a range of environments which present intellectual and physical challenges, and which encourage pupils to work in a team, building on trust and developing skills to solve problems, either individually or as a group
• evaluate their performances compared to previous ones and demonstrate improvement across a range of physical activities to achieve their personal best
• continue to take part regularly in competitive sports and activities outside school through community links or sports clubs” – National Curriculum 2014

Activities will be provided to accommodate aims and objectives of the National Curriculum published in 2014 and the facilities available. The importance of a healthy active lifestyle and the impact being physically active can have on health and wellbeing will be a focus point at key stage 4. We aim to encourage life-long participation and develop performance. We offer alternative sports such as, Dodgeball, Aerobics, Step Aerobics, Futsal, etc to help promote an appreciation and love for sport as well as still delivering the opportunity to develop techniques, tactics and strategies in competitive sports and evaluate and improve performance.

We also offer the opportunity for students to sign up to a leadership course (Sport Leaders UK), they can either pay for the qualification or complete the course and achieve a Barnwell School recognised certificate of attendance. This allows opportunities to further develop competence and confidence within the subject, team build and become presented with physical and intellectual challenges within Physical Education. This leads to opportunities of organising intra and inter-school events.

Examinations within KS4 and 5

Key stage 4 examination is a choice/option subject that the student chooses and complete this alongside the core physical education lessons. This allows students who excel and have a passion and love for the subject develop and grow within the pathway of sport. The BTEC first award links and sequences nicely from the KS3 curriculum. Many of the units we have developed and covered within KS3, such as leadership and practical sports. We also value the importance of a healthy active lifestyles and the importance of fitness which is another unit we must take within the specification. These concepts and theories all have been introduced and developed within Key Stage 3 and allows use to deepen their knowledge and achieve successfully within the subject area. The units feed nicely from the KS3 curriculum and imbed the key aims, objectives and purpose for what we offer within the department. The opportunity to be assessed in all aspects of the course, leadership, healthy lifestyle and fitness improvement and the practical element all lend themselves to what we see a well-rounded PE student should look like and links to our purpose as a department.

OCR Cambridge Technical Level 3 Award in Sport and Physical Activity

The Cambridge Technical in Sport and Physical Activity have been developed to meet the changing needs of the sector and prepare your students for the challenges they will face in Higher Education or employment. Designed in collaboration with experts spanning the breadth of the sector, the Cambridge Technical in Sport and Physical Activity focuses on the skills, knowledge and understanding that today’s universities and employers demand. Our students will practically apply their skills and knowledge in preparation for further study or the workplace.

Our students will develop professional and social skills through interaction with performers, clients, and teammates, as well as theoretical knowledge and understanding to underpin these skills. This will allow them to offer informed, practical advice and guidance to the people they will be working with. Students will consider the barriers to and the effects and benefits of sport and physical activity across all age ranges and social groups, including people with disabilities and BAME, so they can tailor their approach depending on the person, people or situation they’re working with to ensure inclusivity. They will also learn how to work in a safe and effective way, protecting themselves and those they are working with from injury or harm.
Students following the extended diploma route will also gain an understanding of how different businesses and organisations in the sports sector work. When it comes to progression or employment, students will understand the variety of opportunities available to them, and the roles and responsibilities of businesses and organisations within the sector. This will make sure our students develop clear ideas about where they might like to take their career and what progression routes they would like to follow.
