PE at Campsmount

The aim of the PE department, at Campsmount, is to provide all students with the knowledge, skills and desire necessary to participate in lifelong physical activity. Additionally, we work hard to support our high-performing students to achieve their potential in sport. Compulsory PE Kit.jpg

Key Stage 3

Our key stage curriculum provides our students with a balance of activities including games, athletics, gymnastics, dance and fitness. This begins with the learning of activity specific skills and actions, before quickly progressing to the performance of more advanced skills, tactics and compositional principles. This provides our students a foundation which is built upon at key stage 4 & 5. 

There is also an 'Extended Learning' programme for students in Key Stage 3.  Read more about this on the Extended Learning web pageOptional PE Kit.jpg

Key Stage 4

As an option at key stage 4 students can choose to study AQA GCSE PE. This course consists of a theory component that is assessed by means of two written exam papers, that include short answer questions and extended answers based on a scenario issued prior to the exam. This is worth 60%. 40% of the course is linked to practical performance and analysis where students are assessed on their ability to perform isolated skills and apply them to competitive or performance situations. This course provides students with an excellent range of skills and knowledge which can be further developed at key stage 5.

Additionally, in core PE all students will work towards an OCR Sports Studies Qualification.

Students will be required to complete practical and theoretical work demonstrating their knowledge and understanding in a variety of units, including: Participating and Officiating in Sport; Sports Leadership, the Media in Sport and Socio-Cultural Aspects of Sport. The qualification is equivalent to one GCSE grade and is assessed through the submission of coursework and a written exam. The course will give students the skills to either start a career in sport or progress within employment in the sector. This qualification can also prepare learners for higher or further education.

Key Stage 5

At key stage 5 we study the OCR A Level in PE. The course allows us to deliver a blend of units, which includes Anatomy and Physiology, Acquiring Movement Skills, Sociocultural Studies, Contemporary studies and Historical studies. Students are also assessed on their performance ability and observational and analysis skills.
