Subject Vision


The aim of the Physical Education department is to allow pupils the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of physical activities and promote lifelong participation in sport and physical activity. Pupils cover a broad curriculum in KS3, developing skills and confidence in a range of sports including invasion games, gym, dance, fitness and outdoor adventurous activities. We aim to get Hodge Hill Girls pupils to improve their fitness and enjoy their time being active as well as supporting their mental and physical wellbeing.

Curriculum Plan


All KS3 pupils take part in 4 hours of core PE every 2 weeks and All KS4 pupils take part in 2 hours of core PE every 2 weeks.  
There is a full extra-curricular programme in place after school. Pupils can take part for recreation or in competitive matches in summer and winter sports.

Assessment


All pupils in KS3 get assessed at the end of each unit of work.  Grades are then calculated by giving an average PE score over each term.
In Key Stage 4 pupils can choose BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Sport, Activity and Fitness.  We are currently studying through the Edexcel exam board.


BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Sport, Fitness and Activity


The qualification is for pupils who want to acquire theoretical knowledge and technical skills through vocational contexts by exploring areas such as the
•    body systems, 
•    psychology, 
•    nutrition,

The qualification recognises the value of developing skills, knowledge and vocational attributes to complement GCSEs. The qualification will broaden learners’ experience and understanding of the varied progression options available to them.

Outcomes

On average, over 100 pupils every week are attending extra-curricular PE clubs, we have KS3 and KS4 netball teams who compete on a regular basis along with a KS3 football team who also compete against other local schools in friendly games and competitions.  We have won Birmingham Games local Dance competitions leading to competing at the Hippodrome and have pupils participating in other sporting events throughout the year.  We offer a reward trip for pupils at the end of each academic year for pupils who have been attending extra-curricular clubs regularly throughout the academic year, this also results in certificates and house points throughout the year depending on how many clubs the pupil is attending and for how long.
We have year 10 and year 11 groups for BTEC Sport who continually work hard to achieve their best grades.
