Key stage 3 overview
Across key stage 3, pupils are provided with a range of different activities in order for them to start to develop the skills, understanding and resilience to lead and maintain physically active lifestyles. Pupils encounter units of activity which allow opportunities to work as a team and solve problems, take part as individuals, set targets and take part in outdoor and adventurous activities.
The curriculum will allow pupils to enrich their personal development, be curious, imaginative and ambitious about what they are able to achieve. Pupils will be given opportunities for discussion, peer assessment, guided discovery and problem solving.
How are pupils assessed?
All pupils are assessed every 6 weeks across three key areas in PE – their practical skills, understanding and resilience. Pupils will be actively involved in assessment for learning in all lessons to ensure they are clear and responsible for their achievement. This will enable the children to become independent learners, begin to recognize their strengths and areas for improvement and begin to recognize those of their peers.
