    Vision Statement

    Why study PE at WHS?

    PE develops healthy lifestyles and personal fitness. It fosters an enjoyment of physical activity so that this can be continued throughout life.

    Why does PE matter?

    Students are educated to develop a healthy body and healthy mind. It relieves stress and anxiety enabling them to cope with the demands and pressures of school life. It balances with more classroom-based subjects and offers the opportunity to experience a more practical learning environment. GCSE PE and BTEC Sport allows students to gain a qualification and the department’s results contribute to the whole school successes.

    What does PE help young people to achieve?

    For some students, completing a course in GCSE Physical Education or BTEC Sport enables them to gain a formal qualification. It also allows students to seek employment within the sport and leisure industry. Students can gain honours and recognition at all levels by representing their house, school, district, county, regional and national.

    Physical Education gives students a sense of achievement and worth. It develops self-esteem and confidence as well as building resilience. Personal and social skills are developed through team work and building relationships is an integral part of taking part in sport. Through working closely with other students both at Woking High and other schools, students understand the importance of respect, courtesy and integrity. Organisational skills are developed due to the leadership opportunities on offer within lessons and working with local primary schools.

    Range of Opportunities

     A full and varied programme of competitive and recreational activities is provided before school, at lunchtime, after school and occasionally at weekends. The enrichment activities can be accessed by all students. Students will be given the opportunity to compete in inter-house and inter-school competitions on a regular basis. The school enters teams in all local leagues and tournaments as well as some regional and national competitions. There are opportunities for students to experience international sports fixtures at Twickenham, Lords, The Oval, Wimbledon and Queen’s Club.

    The department staff lead a number of residential visits; Year 7 Camp in The New Forest and an annual ski trip.

    Assessment Criteria

    Students will be assessed twice during the unit of work for each activity. This will take the form of a practical assessment and students will record their grade in their journals. Students will then record one target in order for them to make progress. 

  • GCSE Physical Education

    Studying GCSE PE will enable students to enjoy and understand the benefits of living a healthy and active lifestyle. They will acquire the skills to make informed choices about their own physical development, whilst getting involved in physical activities that meet their needs. They also learn how to analyse and evaluate performance, making effective plans for improvement.

    Assessment

    There are two papers of 1 hour 15 minutes each and they will consist of a mixture of multiple choice/objective test, short answer and extended answer questions.

    Paper 1 – THE HUMAN BODY AND MOVEMENT IN A PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND SPORT

    · Applied anatomy and physiology, Movement analysis, Physical Training and Use of data.

    Paper 2 – SOCIO-CULTURAL INFLUENCES AND WELL-BEING IN PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND SPORT

    · Sports Psychology, Socio-cultural influences, Health, fitness and well-being, and Use of data.

    Practical Assessment – students will be assessed in three activities as a performer (1 team activity, 1 individual activity and a third within a team or as an individual). Successful students are... Those whose lifestyle is ‘sport’ and who have performed to a high level at KS3. Students should enjoy participating in sports. Students need to be physically fit and able to perform well in a range of different activities. Students who study GCSE PE MUST attend two sports clubs, covering two different sports, either at school or outside of school. If students do not meet these criteria, they will be able to do the BTEC qualification instead. Progression Students who take GCSE PE can go onto study various other sports related courses e.g. A-level PE, Sports Therapy, Sports Leadership.

    First Award in sport - BTEC

    The BTEC Level 2 First Award in Sport has been designed to provide an engaging and stimulating introduction to the world of sport. The qualification builds on learning from Key Stage 3 for those who may wish to explore a vocational route into a sports related career. The course is equivalent to a GCSE. The course also:

    ● encourages personal development through practical participation and performance in a range of sports and exercise activities;

    ● gives students a wider understanding and appreciation of health-related fitness, sports and exercise through a selection of optional specialist units;

    ● provides education and training relevant to a career in sport, leisure and recreation.

    Assessment

    Unit 1: Fitness for Sport and Exercise (1 hour exam, 25%)

    Unit 2: Practical Sports Performance

    Unit 3: The Sports Performer in Action

    Unit 4: Training for Personal Fitness

    Units 2, 3 and 4 are assessed internally and are worth 75% of the final mark.
