In keeping with the national debate about providing wider participation amongst children of school age, Ernulf Academy continues to provide 2 hours of PE within the KS4 curriculum. As a result we are able to offer a very broad range of activities to suit all individual interests and ability levels.
A brief outline of our core PE provision in both Years 10 and 11 is outlined below.
- In Year 10 students will be provided the opportunity to take part in wide range of activities, with an increasing emphasis on developing their skills and knowledge in a variety of roles. Students are expected to take on leadership roles (such as being an official) where appropriate, and demonstrate the leadership skills learnt throughout their KS3 PE lessons. This may involve leading warm ups, or could include coaching a team. In addition, the students are encouraged to develop their individual and team performance levels across all activities completed.
Throughout KS4 students are given the opportunity to take part in an extensive array of extra-curricular sports, and where possible represent the college in fixtures against other schools.
- Where possible, students are provided a greater element of choice within core PE in Year 11. The aim is very much on encouraging students to maintain involvement in sport, and again an emphasis is placed on student led learning where possible. As with year 10, a variety of extra-curricular clubs are provided for year 11 students and fixtures with local schools take place throughout the year.
