PE

"Pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and, as seen in physical education, in leading the learning." (Ofsted July 2013)

Welcome to The Bishop of Winchester Academy Physical Education Department. As a department we pride ourselves on having high expectations and providing our pupils with experiences to help them achieve their optimum potential.

Physical Education is primarily concerned with physical capabilities but the associated aspects of knowledge and understanding are also vital components for each and every pupil.

Physical Education is also to encompass enjoyment and satisfaction and thereby encourage a lifelong commitment to an active and healthy lifestyle. Regular Physical Activity can improve quality of life, improve health, promote social inclusion, raise individual self-esteem and confidence and counter anti-social behaviour.

Key Stage 3

Throughout each year all pupils will complete a progressive scheme of work within indoor and outdoor activities there include:

Indoor – Badminton, Basketball, Health Related Exercise (HRE), Dance/Gymnastics

Outdoor – Rugby, Football, Netball, Hockey, Summer Sports, Cricket, Athletics and Rounders

Key Stage 4

Examination courses

GCSE PE

This is a qualification that would suit students looking to pursue further education and a further career in Sport. The OCR Level 1/Level 2 GCSE (9–1) in Physical Education consists of two externally-examined papers and two non-examined assessment components. This is an exciting and practical course that encompasses the 2 areas of practical and theory to examine the pupil as a well rounded individual in the sporting world.

BTEC First has been successfully introduced into our KS4 accreditation courses with outstanding results. This is the equivalent to one GCSE and is taken over a 2 year period. All pupils are expected to write approximately 3 or 4 assignments for each module. Four modules are taught over 2 years.

To reinforce understanding, practical lessons are offered as much as possible to support pupil understanding.

Core PE

Yr 10 – Competitive Sports and Fitness 

The aim is to develop understanding of Physical Education outside of the Academy environment.  Other groups will work on fitness within the Academy and competitive sports.

Yr 11 – Health and Fitness

The Yr 11 students focus on the key health and fitness requirements needed to live a happy and healthy lifestyle. They have a particular focus on the effects of diet and exercise on the body. The aim of the learning is for pupils to gain an understanding of how to live a healthy lifestyle and gain the knowledge to continue this into their life outside of the Academy.

Extra Curricular Clubs

We host an extensive and rewarding extra-curricular Sports programme at the Academy. Pupils can train and become a member of the team for sports such as Football, Rugby, Netball, Cricket, Basketball, Rounders where pupils represent the Academy on a regular basis. Recognition is given to the pupils of each team that show exceptional committment with a half or full colours badge rewarded to wear on Academy Blazer.

All pupils have the opportunity to learn and compete in new activates such as indoor rowing, trampolining, Badminton, Y-Ball, Fitness, Dance, Hockey, Indoor Football and Boccia.

Physical Education Kit

Every pupil is expected to wear full PE kit for each PE lesson. We also have a policy for pupils who are sick or injured but in school, to wear kit and take on a role within the lesson such as a leader, coach or analyst. They will not take part in the physical activity but still play a role in the lesson. If a student forgets to bring their PE kit into school they are expected to borrow kit from the PE Department.
