Physical Education

In September 2009 the structure of the modified GCSE Physical Education will be adopted for first examination in the summer of 2011.

The exciting and challenging changes to the course occur largely in the practical component although it still accounts for 60% of the overall marks. In addition to the practical performer role, it will also be possible to perform in the role of official and/or leader. The candidate can now offer their practical performance activities from different perspectives which allows for a greater degree of specialisation. The theory part of the exam which is worth 40% is now inclusive of various contemporary topics, in addition to existing ones, Students will be fully informed of the changes in the syllabus and how they will impact on their potential suitability for the course during the information period prior to the GCSE Selection process during the second part of their Year 9.

Key Stage 3

During key stage 3, pupils become more expert in their skills and techniques and learn how to apply them in different activities. They start to understand what makes an effective performance and how to apply these principles to their own and others' work. They learn to take the initiative and to make decisions for themselves about what to do to improve performance. They start to identify the types of activity they prefer and to take a variety of roles, such as leader and official.

Primary PE KS 2

Physical Education at BISAK is developed in accordance with the English National Curriculum whilst also incorporating the use of Learning Power skills. In Physical Education, the meaningful use of Learning Power skills can be seen when students are for example; being collaborative and communicative in games, independent in track and field and creative and reflective in gymnastics and dance.

The curriculum itself strives to ensure that students learn to be competitive, cooperative and creative whilst working as individuals and in groups and teams. Pupils will learn to evaluate their performance and the performance of others in order to set goals. Through this process, they will learn about their strengths and weaknesses and how to get involved in lifelong physical activity.
