Our aim is to encourage ALL students to :
Enjoy physical education so they might have a lifelong involvement in physical activity
Experience a culture of High Performance Learning and ‘Meaningful PE’ with physical literacy at its heart.
Ultimately, through physical activity, we want students to know more and be able to do more.
PE is based on three sets of attributes: Physical, Social and Personal. Each category is broken down into further areas that indicate what skills we would like students to be able to know and do. These attributes and skills include physical performance and competence, but also ‘High Performance Learning’ attitudes and characteristics. We track students progress through criteria based on what they can recall (I know statements) and what they demonstrate (I can statements). Eight activities are assessed each academic year and each activity is assessed on one performance strand and one personal or social strand.
The National Curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all students:
develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
are physically active for sustained periods of time
engage in competitive sports and activities
will lead healthy, active lives.
PE and Sport have a strong reputation at Broadlands Academy.
We offer the BTEC Sport qualification at KS4 and believe it gives a strong foundation for anyone wishing to go on to study sports and training at college and beyond.
The course has four units:
Although you do not get assessed on your practical ability, approximately 50% of the lessons are practical, learning through being physically active rather than in the classroom.
