PE (core)

PE & Dance lessons at Parkside are fun, engaging and challenging. A fantastic way to improve your leadership skills, social skills and mental health, through leading peers, making friends and relieving stress. We aim to instil a love for sport and provide opportunities for all students to participate in a range of different activities.

Curriculum Plans

 

 

  

Year 7, 8 & 9

What are we studying?

 See curriculum plan above.

How are we assessed?

Students will study each activity for a 4-week block of work. Core & Advanced skills will be used to assess the students through the 4-weeks, as we use live tracking, every lesson. The assessment is based on each student’s ability to perform the Core & Advanced skills both in isolation and in a competitive situation. Please see example of Core & Advanced Skills poster below:

Students will be given chance to improve/P4P their assessment score in their final week. They will then be provided with a sticker, which will be stuck in their planners, allowing them to see what colour quintile they have achieved for that activity.

What can parents do to help?

Please help with your child’s organisation to ensure they that bring appropriate PE kit to all lessons. Encourage them to participate in extra-curricular PE activities. Use ClassCharts and Edulink to communicate with staff on any concerns or matters regarding PE.

Year 10 & 11

What are we studying?

 See curriculum plan above.

How are we assessed?

The students are assessed each data collection on their Attitude to Learning (A2L). This relates to how hard they work and how they apply themselves during PE lessons. We also take into account their organisation, in terms of bringing PE kit and their level of engagement. Progress pins are awarded for those students who do particularly well and show a fantastic attitude week in, week out.
