The Fallibroome Academy > Curriculum > PE

The PE department are extremely committed to ensuring that every student at Fallibroome is able to fully develop their range of physical and social skills through their involvement in a high quality PE curriculum.

Every student in Years 7, 8 and 9 have 4 hours of PE per fortnight. In Key Stage 4, students follow a 'Core' PE programme for 3 hours per fortnight and many students opt to study GCSE PE or BTEC Sport enabling them to experience up to a further 5 hours every two weeks. A-Level students are given the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and understanding of Physical Education through AS and A2 PE with 9 lessons taking place over a 2 week period.

Every student at Fallibroome is encouraged to take part in our extensive extra-curricular PE programme. During these times, the PE staff organise practices, clubs and competitions. Whilst many of these activities encourage and develop a 'sport for all' philosophy, the more able students are invited to represent the school in a wide range of sports.

When students participate in PE activities they are required to wear the following:

  • Green rugby jersey (only required for outdoor/games activities).
  • White polo shirt (indoor PE/summer activities).
  • Black shorts.
  • Green football socks.
  • Football boots/trainers.
  • Black tracksuit bottoms (optional in winter only).
  • Black gloves/hat (optional in winter only).
  • Shin pads/gum shield (recommended for rugby/hockey and football).

Students will be issued with a kit mark if they forget their kit/items of their kit. Two kit marks will result in a faculty detention.

Students still need to bring their kit when they are injured and failure to do so will result in a kit mark. Kit is required as students will still go outside and may get wet. Students will be required to take on a coaching/officiating role to ensure they are still engaged in the lesson.

The PE curriculum is a balanced mixture of individual and team activities. In years 7 to 9, all PE lessons are taught in single gender classes and students follow a set programme of activities. The activities are revisited each year in Key Stage 3, thus allowing the students to develop their skills as they move through the school.

The five strands of assessment students are assessed in:

  • Developing skills in physical activity
  • Making and applying decisions
  • Evaluate and improve performances
  • Developing physical and mental capacity
  • Making informed choices about healthy lifestyles

Each student will review their progress across these five strands twice yearly.
