GCSE PHYSICAL EDUCATION

 

Students usually have one theory lesson per week and one practical lesson.  The theory is worth 40% of the final mark and is assessed with two exams both in Year 11.  The practical is worth 50% of the final mark and is assessed through performance in four sports, one of which may be in a coaching or officiating role.  There are also two written coursework tasks that are worth 10% of the final mark.  Students are expected to get involved in teams and be prepared to attend after school practices. 

 


BTEC LEVEL 2 FIRST AWARD IN SPORT

 

In Year 10, students have two lessons per week and study the following core units:

This unit is externally assessed through a one hour on-screen electronic test and contributes 25% toward the final mark.

Unit 2   Practical Sports Performance
This unit is internally assessed using a variety of assessment techniques ranging from practical performance to written assignments produced on a computer.

In Year 11, students will complete two further optional units which are both assessed internally.  At the end of the course, students are awarded a Level 1 or a Level 2 Award in Sport.  The Level 2 Award is further graded at Pass, Merit and Distinction.
