At Long Field Academy, our Physical Education department are determined to equip all learners with the knowledge, skills and values needed in order to develop and maintain their physical performance. We understand and are determined to ensure that all students develop beyond merely their practical ability and become effective leaders and confident communicators. Subsequently, our constant efforts will prepare all learners for GCSE, Btec Sport, A-Level and beyond.
All students will receive two one-hour lessons of Physical Education per week, with this increasing to 3 lessons at KS4. Within the KS3 curriculum, all students have the opportunity to gain and develop a basic level of practical core and advanced skills across a variety of different sports and/or activities. In addition to these practical elements, students will also be introduced to a number of theoretical topics which directly link to GCSE Physical Education. This is done to prepare students for later learning at KS4 and beyond. At KS4 students have the option of taking GCSE Physical Education or Btec Sport Award. Both of which enable the students to retrieve previous knowledge and develop their understanding further; establishing links between KS3 & KS4. Within Physical Education, we truly believe that building on the physical and theoretical principles of sport and activity is beneficial to learners and will aid in the development of further sporting athletes and professionals.
