Physical Education – Core PE

All students at Codsall Community High School have the opportunity to take part in a broad and balanced curriculum thanks to our extensive sports fields, 4G astro-turf, swimming pool, sports hall and dance studio.
At Codsall Community High School we aim to ensure that all pupils:
• 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
• lead healthy, active lives.

Year 9 Physical Education

All students starting year 9 at Codsall Community High School will experience a broad and balanced PE Curriculum which builds upon the skills developed in years 7 and 8.
Year 9 students will undertake an induction period at the start of year 9 which will allow the PE Department to observe and allocate students to the appropriate PE group to suit their individual needs.
All year 9 students will receive 2 hours of timetabled core PE per week
Year 10 Physical Education
Students will follow a more personalised PE curriculum which will allow them to pursue a ‘pathway’ of their choice:

Team Performer

Will follow a PE curriculum which predominantly consists of team sports such as football/netball, rugby, handball, softball/rounders, and basketball. Team performers will also experience a reduced amount of individual sports and aesthetic activities where necessary to ensure they still meet the criteria of the key stage four national curriculum for PE.

Individual Performer

Will follow a PE curriculum which predominantly consists of individual sports such as swimming, trampolining, badminton, tennis and table tennis. Individual performers will also experience a reduced amount of team sports and aesthetic activities where necessary to ensure they still meet the criteria of the key stage four national curriculum for PE.

Aesthetic Performer

Will follow a PE curriculum which predominantly consists of aesthetic activities such as dance, fitness, trampolining and gymnastics. Aesthetic performers will also experience a reduced amount of team sports and individual sports where necessary to ensure they still meet the criteria of the key stage four national curriculum for PE.
All year 10 students will receive 2 hours of timetabled core PE per week

Year 11

Students will follow a flexible PE curriculum which supports health and well-being and also allows students to strike the right balance between physical activity and additional support to prepare for their GCSE examinations.
All year 11 students will receive between one and three hours of physical education per week depending on their individual circumstances and support needs for their GCSE examinations.

Physical Education – GCSE PE

What will I learn about?

The examination-based course in PE allows you to experience and gain confidence in both the theoretical and practical elements of sport. The course follows the AQA GCSE PE Full Course specification. This subject suits the more academic learner who is well equipped to cope with revision and exams. The practical element of the course will also involve the learner having a high competence across several sports and it would be advantageous if you competed outside of school.

How will my work be assessed?

Currently the course is 40% practical and 60% theory.
Knowledge and Understanding for the Active Participant; the following areas are all covered in the theoretical component of the course:
Paper 1
• Anatomy & Physiology
• Movement Analysis
• Physical Training
• Use of Data
Paper 2
• Sport Psychology
• Socio-cultural influences
• Health, Fitness & Wellbeing
• Use of data
Theory Assessment; 2 x 1 hour 15-minute exam at the end of the course. Students should be able to cope with the demands of the theory work in GCSE PE, if they are currently working at a 6 in Y9 Science.
Practical Assessment; assessed in 3 sports with at least 1 individual sport (for example, athletics or swimming) and 1 team sport (for example, football or netball). It is essential to be playing competitive sport at club level in an AQA GCSE specification listed sport. Students may also be assessed in activities that are not offered as part of our school PE curriculum, which are included on the GCSE AQA PE specification for example, golf or skiing) and DVD evidence of their performance being provided by the pupil of their skills and competitive game play. The practical assessment will also involve a written analysis and evaluation.
