Assessment in PE
Pupils are assessed in two ways:
- Their performance of the sport specific skills and application of those skills to the game/sport/activity in line with department policy
- Their Knowledge and understanding of basic theoretical principles that relate to their specific stage of development
At examination level, students are assessed in line with specific exam board criteria in both their practical and theoretical elements of the course. Theoretical knowledge is assessed via end of topic tests which take place approximately on a half termly basis and build a picture of each students knowledge and understanding of the key topic areas covered by the course. Practically, students are assessed in their chosen sports in relation to their ability to accurately replicate specific skills as well as their ability to apply them in competitive situations to overcome an opponent(s)
