PE and Sport for all

At Addey & Stanhope school, we are dedicated to raising the attainment of all our students in Physical Education. Our goal is to raise the standards of achievement in PE and sport for all our students. As a department, we teach a broad selection of activities, with the aim that all students are extended and challenged. All students study core PE throughout their five years at the school, with some students selecting GCSE PE as an option in year 10 & 11. We offer a range of extra-curricular activities to all students, which enables students to try activities outside of the normal curriculum.

Our Approach

Using the power of PE and Sport, we enhance their academic, personal and social development regardless of ability.

This leads to higher self esteem, and infuses them with a sense of pride in their successes, and encourages them to improve and raise attainment through the National Curriculum.

Key Stage 4

All students study up to 5 activity areas during Years 10 and 11, one of which must be a game. Working as individuals, in groups and in teams, students develop concepts of fairness and of personal and social responsibility. They take on different roles and responsibilities, including leadership, coaching and officiating. Students are given a choice of physical activities they take part in and gain knowledge of their own physical competency, helping them to develop confidence to get involved in exercise and activity out of school and in later life.

GCSE Physical Education

In GCSE PE, students become competent in four physical activities, gaining knowledge and understanding of laws, rules, techniques, strategies and safety factors as well as understanding of the organisation of sports and physical activities in this country and the social influences on participation. In addition students build on their understanding of the physical basis of performance and exercise in physical activities.
