PE

Welcome to PE at Newman Catholic School

At Newman Catholic School we offer a high quality physical education curriculum which we hope will inspire all students to take part in regular physical activity and have opportunities to excel in competitive sport. We would like all students to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness; whilst benefiting from personal, social and emotional development. If you have any queries regarding PE or school sport, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.

Core PE – Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9)

In Years 7, 8 and 9 students will gain in confidence and develop their techniques across a range of sports and physical activity. They will understand what makes a performance effective and how to analyse their own and others work. Students will be encouraged to take part in sport and physical activity out of school; they will understand that regular physical activity contributes to a healthy, active lifestyle with many long term health benefits.

Students will have the opportunity to:

  • Use a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in direct competition through team and individual games (e.g. Football, Rugby, Netball and Badminton)
  • Develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports (e.g. Athletics, Gymnastics)
  • Perform dances using advanced dance techniques within a range of dance styles and forms
  • Take part in activities which present intellectual and physical challenges where teamwork and problem solving is needed
  • Analyse their performances compared to previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best
  • Take part in competitive sports and activities outside school through community links and sports clubs.

Core PE – Key Stage 4 (Years 10-11)

In Years 10, and 11 students will continue to take part in a range of sports and physical activity in Core PE lessons. This is aimed at giving students further competitive opportunities while developing personal fitness and promoting an active, healthy lifestyle.

Students will have the opportunity to:

  • Use a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in direct competition through team and individual games (e.g. Football, Rugby, Netball and Badminton)
  • Develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports (e.g. Athletics, Gymnastics), or other physical activities (e.g. Dance)
  • Take part in activities which present intellectual and physical challenges where teamwork and problem solving is needed

GCSE 9-1 Physical Education (Edexcel 2016 Specification)

  • This is an academically and practically demanding course. Students need to sustain an interest in learning the theoretical components of the course in addition to showing the commitment needed to develop their performance in a range of sports.

    By studying this course a student will receive a well-rounded and full introduction in to the world of PE, Sport and Sport Science. They will develop an understanding of how the mind and body works in relation to performance in physical activity.

    In the theory lessons students will cover the following topics:

    Paper 1 –

    • Health, Fitness and Well-being
    • Sport Psychology
    • Socio-cultural influences
    • Use of Data

    Paper 2 –

    • Applied Anatomy and Physiology
    • Movement Analysis
    • Physical Training
    • Use of Data

     

    In the practical lessons students will take part in a number of different sports and physical activity aimed at taking their practical performance to a higher level. For their final examination they will be assessed in three activities;

    • One teamactivity
    • One individualactivity
    • One free choice(team or individual)

    Students will also complete a Personal Exercise Programme (PEP) where they plan, carry out and evaluate an exercise programme aimed at improving their performance in one of their assessed activities.

Extra-Curricular Sport

We actively encourage all students to attend extra-curricular practices after school to further develop their skills in a range of sports. It provides students with the chance to mix socially with others, gain in confidence and benefit from the physical benefits of exercise.

 

Please can we ask all students who are being collected from an after school club to be picked up from the sports hall car park at Harraby Sports Complex.

After school clubs will usually finish at 4.15 pm unless students have been advised differently.

Thank you.  Mr Irving, Head of PE.
