The aim of physical education at Claremont Fan Court School is to impart knowledge and values through physical activities. We achieve this by providing a broad and balanced curriculum which is complimented by an extensive co-curricular programme. Through structured and differentiated lessons, children are encouraged to develop practical and social skills. By participating in a wide variety of activities, they learn to work with others as part of a team and develop cooperation and leadership. All children have the opportunity to experience sport at a representative level with more than 90% of pupils representing the school in at least one sport.
Pupils receive three PE lessons a week. The pupils participate in a range of activities including gymnastics, dance, swimming, volleyball, basketball, hockey, cross country, orienteering and health related fitness, as well as a further double period devoted to a representative sport. Pupils are given the opportunity to develop individual skills, build upon tactical knowledge and analyse peer performances. They are also encouraged to take on leadership and officiating roles.
Pupils receive two PE lessons a week. Within this time there are opportunities to take part in karate, squash, yoga, archery, badminton and fitness activities. Pupils are also able to represent the school in a variety of sports. The boys’ representative sports are rugby, football, hockey, cricket, athletics and tennis. The girls’ representative sports are lacrosse, netball, athletics, hockey, rounders and tennis.
PE as an exam subject uses the Edexcel Board. This course is not only interesting and enjoyable, but aims to develop knowledge and understanding of the importance of exercise. Teaching and learning ensure that when evaluating and improving performance, connections are made between developing, selecting and applying skills, tactics and compositional ideas, and fitness and health. Thus the composite nature of the subject is underpinned by the importance of learning in, about, and through physical activity. 60% of the final grade is assessed practically and 40% is assessed through the final written examination at the end of the two year course.
A Level Physical Education as an exam subject uses the OCR Board. This course looks in depth at a wide range of content, covering topics from sports psychology through to comparative studies.
