Physical Education (PE) Core non-exam
The curriculum in Year 9 will be a set programme of activities in one lesson each week and a pathway choice in their second weekly lesson. In Years 10 and 11 it will be a balance between set activities and options.
The aim of the practical lessons is to give students the opportunity to participate in physical activities conducive to a healthy lifestyle and to have the opportunity to reach their sporting potential. They will be taught and encouraged to develop a positive approach to sport which can be continued into adult life, with an emphasis on physical well-being and enjoyment. Students will learn through: formal teaching; movement experience; sports education; individual, small group and team activities. They will also develop their ability to analyse performance.
