Spiritual Students in PE use of a range of social skills in different contexts, including working and socialising with pupils from different religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. The willingness to participate in a variety of social setting, cooperating well with others and being able to resolve conflicts effectively. An interest in, and understanding of, the way communities and societies function at a variety of levels.

The concepts of self-discipline to excel are essential. Students are taught that the only way you can achieve in sport to a high standard is if you work hard and if you can discipline yourself to train and apply yourself.

Moral PE in general teaches students about code of conduct, etiquette, handshake before and after matches, applauding the opposition, fair play, unwritten rules and sportsmanship. In every lesson students abide by the rules and regulations, gaining a good understanding of rules of sport and the importance of infringements such as penalties and red cards allow students to understand the consequences of their actions which in turn helps students apply this understanding to their own lives.

Social In PE students develop a sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them. Students are consistently encouraged to use their imagination and creativity in their learning, and showcase a willingness to reflect on their experiences.

Cultural The PE department encourages a willingness to participate in sporting opportunities that will help to develop positive attitudes towards different religious, ethnic and socio-economic groups in the local, national and global communities.

BHA Skills and Attributes:

MORE ABLE PUPILS Talented PE students will be encouraged to attend appropriate out of hours learning programmes that are provided by members of the PE department. Competitive arenas will be provided where talented students can compete against other talented pupils from other schools.

Year 7
During Year 7 students follow a programme where they will be taught the basis of Invasion games, Net wall games, Gymnastics, Health Related Fitness, Athletics and Striking and Fielding games. We teach the students the basic skills and tactics for these games, building on any past experiences they may have gained. During the first half term, all students will be tested on their practical skills in all areas of PE. This information will then be used to help with target setting.
Year 8
The students in Year 8 are taught the same areas of experience as in Year 7, with a particular focus of developing their skills and knowledge. They will be asked to focus on some areas of coaching and self-management, including leading warm ups for small groups.
Year 9

In Year 9 students follow a programme which allows further skill development and creates a sense of independence. In a range of sports and activities students will be asked to lead warm ups and parts of the lesson, and encouraged to analyse their own performance and that of their team, developing appropriate feedback.

Year 10 & 11

BTEC Sport: Students are taught a range of topic areas and units through a series of theory lessons and then through the practical application of the skills they have learnt. There is no exam for this subject, so all assessment is carried out by the teaching staff and through the setting of home learning and course work.

GCSE PE: Students are assessed on their practical performance in 4 sports, where they will receive a score out of 10. Students also follow a theory strand where they learn about the role of the bones muscles and joints, the practical and theoretical application of health related fitness and the key body systems. There is a written exam at the end of the course, and there is a course work element to this course too.

Core PE: Students follow a programme of participation where a variety of sports are offered throughout the year. In the summer term all students have the opportunity to follow the Sports Leaders Award, or to continue with a participation element.
