Physical Education

Pupils will have two 1 hour lessons per week of Physical Education. 

On entry to Year 7, students will have a series of taster sessions each lasting two lessons.  These will cover areas that display skills in striking and fielding, net/wall games, problem solving, gymnastics and invasion type activities.  Fitness testing and assessments will be carried out during these activities which will guide us in placing the students into groups ready for the activities taught after half term. 

The activities students participate in will be determined by the group they are placed in after the October Half Term, but include:

  • Boys - Rugby, Badminton, Outdoor and Adventurous Activities, Basketball, Cricket, Athletics, Handball, Football and Cardio Fitness.
  • Girls - Netball, Trampolining, Tennis, Gymnastics, Handball, Tag Rugby, Karate, Basketball, Rounders, Badminton, Athletics and Cardio Fitness.

Key Stage 5

Pupils are usually (but not always) taught in single sex groups throughout years 7 and 8.  Students generally remain in the set that they are placed in from Half Term in Year 7, but changes are frequently made to enhance performance and maximise progress and success.

Full participation in lessons is expected by all students who wear the correct PE kit.  Any student who cannot participate in their PE lesson because of short term injuries requires a note written and signed by their parent or guardian. Obviously we take into consideration any student who has long term illness, but need a medical note for our records.  Any student excused from PE must still bring their PE kit as they are still required to help the teacher and other students in the lesson.  Having kit ensures they are suitably dressed and allows them to be part of the lesson.

All students have the opportunity to attend clubs and practices after school.  We hope that all students will participate in at least one Session 6 activity in our full programme of extra curricular activities.

We run a Gifted and Talented programme at Idsall. During the first term we will be collecting information on pupils level of performance and competition outside of school. This identifies and supports athletes training and competitions and allows them to balance their sport with their academic work.

Competitive sport is available for all pupils in the form of Inter House and Inter School competitions with many school teams entering A & B teams, District, County and National tournaments.

PE AT KEY STAGE 4

This title covers two specific subject areas:
  • BTEC Level 1 / 2 Award in Sport
  • GSCE PE

BTEC Level 1 / 2 Award in Sport

A BTEC Level 2 First in Sport is a vocational course. Students learn by completing projects and assignments that are based on realistic workplace situations, activities and demands. The BTEC Level 2 Award is the equivalent to a full GCSE grades A*- C .The course is 75% internally assessed through coursework and 25% externally examined through an online exam. Pupils will cover four units; one of these is an online external examination.

All students take two core units:

  • Fitness For Sport and Exercise (External online assessment)
  • Practical Sport  Performance (Internal assessment)
    *You will need to be competent in two sports

Students then learn two other specialist units from the list below:   

  • Training and Personal Fitness (Internal assessment)

  *Your time will be split approximately 75% in the classroom and 25% in practical lessons.
