Key Stage 4 Physical Education Core Curriculum

Core PE will continue to be an essential component of providing a broad and balanced curriculum at Key Stage 4.  You will participate in 1 hour per week of physical education during years 10 and 11.

What will I learn about?
In Year 10 you will follow a similar PE curriculum model as you do in Year 9.  You will continue to work in ability groups and will study several activities covering all curriculum areas including dance, games, gymnastics, outdoor and adventurous activities and athletics. You  will perform more complex skills and techniques and apply more complex tactics and strategies, focusing upon planning, performing and evaluating.

In Year 11 you will have the opportunity to choose the activities you would like to study, which will cover at least 2 curriculum areas from a selection which have been popular in previous years including the introduction of trampolining. You will again perform more complex skills and techniques and apply more complex tactics and strategies with an increased focus on leadership in sport. The aim of the PE course in Year 11 is to promote and encourage you to develop a life-long love of physical activity.

Key Stage 4 Physical Education GCSE

What will I learn about?
The examination based course in PE allows you to experience and gain confidence in both the theoretical and practical elements of sport.  The course follows the AQA GCSE PE Full Course specification.  This subject suits the more academic learner who is well equipped to cope with revision and exams. The practical element of the course will also involve the learner having a high competence across several sports and it would be advantageous if you competed outside of school.

How will my work be assessed?
Currently the course is 40% practical and 60% theory.

Knowledge and Understanding  for the Active Participant; the following areas are all covered in the theoretical component of the course:

Paper 1

  • Anatomy & Physiology
  • Movement Analysis
  • Physical Training
  • Use of Data

Paper 2

  • Sport Psychology
  • Socio-cultural influences
  • Health, Fitness & Wellbeing
  • Use of data

Theory Assessment; 2 x 1 hour 15 minute exam at the end of the course.  Students should be able to cope with the demands of the theory work in GCSE PE, if they are currently working at a 6 in Y9 Science.

The Active Participant; students will participate as performers in a range of physical activities throughout the duration of the course. This will involve at least 1 individual sport and 1 team sport.

Practical Assessment; assessed in 3 sports with at least 1 individual sport (for example, athletics or swimming) and 1 team sport (for example, football or netball). Students may also be assessed in activities that are not offered as part of the PGS curriculum (for example, golf or skiing), subject to the examination board recognising such sports and video evidence of performance being provided. The practical assessment will also involve a written analysis & evaluation.
