Physical Education

Curriculum Overview.

 

Progress report information.

 

The Physical Education faculty uphold a true ‘commitment to excellence’ in all that we do. We aim to provide pupils with many

different experiences within a diverse and engaging curriculum that challenges them both physically and academically.

Every student at Wade Deacon studies two hours of Physical Education per week as it is a core subject in the National Curriculum. In Years 7 and 8 pupils will experience a variety of sports with the aim to develop them further at GCSE level.

At KS4 students will be guided onto one of three pathways: GCSE PE, Cambridge National Sports Science or BTEC Dance. The

pathway studied will depend on their performance in previous years as well as their practical and academic abilities. This

information will divide the cohort into sets within each pathway. GCSE PE and Sports Science classes will take part in one theory and one practical lesson per week. Dance students will have two practical lessons per week apart from one unit of written assessment where some theory lessons will be necessary.

Curriculum Overview

 

Year 7

 

Pupils will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of sports throughout the year. During this Foundation year, pupils will learn the fundamental skills in a range of sports that can be developed throughout Foundation Stage and KS4. The aim is to open pupils up to the variety of activities available to them both at school and the local area and teach them the benefits that exercise and sport can have.

 

Year 8

 

Pupils will further develop all fundamental skills learnt in year 7. Pupils will develop their understanding of the skill and health
