Judgemeadow Community College has a high quality physical education curriculum that inspires and gives opportunities for all students to succeed and excel in competitive sport and physically demanding activities. The curriculum provides a range of activities that allows students to learn a broad range of life skills such as communication, collaboration and competition.

We provide opportunities for all learners to become physically confident in a way which supports our students’ health and fitness by engaging in various activities that encourage independent learning.  Skills developed can also help to build character and embed values such as fairness, teamwork, resilience and respect.

The P.E curriculum at Judgemeadow enables students to develop an understanding of how to improve in many different physical activities and encourages students to evaluate, reflect, analyse and recognise their own, and others successes.

 

Curriculum

The first three years of high-quality physical education are designed to give a wide range of opportunities that help students become physically confident in a way which supports each student’s health and fitness. The broad and balanced PE curriculum at Judgemeadow enables students to develop an understanding of how to improve in many different physical activities and encourages students to evaluate, reflect, analyse and recognise their own, and others’ successes.

Activities

During Years 10 and 11 students will be offered a variety of activities that further develop skills/techniques, strength and power. The programme is a combination of set units of work (eg. Fitness, team games, individual games, other competitive activities or dance, OAA). All students will have some choice of which activity they prefer.

 

There are a broad range of activities that regularly appear in our KS4 programme including: football, hockey, netball, urban rebounding, dance, basketball, table tennis, unihoc, badminton, tennis, cross-country, athletics, rounders, cricket, volleyball, orienteering, rugby and fitness. Skills developed will also help to build character and embed values such as fairness, teamwork, resilience and respect. 

 

GCSE PE

This demanding course will provide students with an opportunity to study theoretical aspects of Physical Education. Throughout the examination PE course students will be encouraged to improve their knowledge of sports science through research, along with developing their physical skills. Students are continually assessed and are expected to take part in extracurricular sport.

 

Extra-Curricular

We offer an extensive range of extracurricular clubs and activities. All of our students at Judgemeadow are encouraged to attend and participate in either a performing, leading or officiating role. We have representative teams in football, cricket, table tennis, badminton, basketball, rugby, rounders and athletics. We have specialist coaches working with the college staff during some of these clubs and team sessions. The College has been awarded the ‘Football Associations Charter Standard’ and ‘Badminton England’s Premier School Status’.

 

Facilities

We offer specialised teaching areas across our curriculum. These include indoor facilities, like our new four badminton court sports hall, dance studio/gymnasium and a fitness room. We have a huge amount of outdoor space covering 65 acres, also the Football Foundation funded 3G rubber crumb football pitch alongside the multi use games area.

 

 

PE Kit Requirement

Please note that PE is a compulsory national curriculum subject and students are expected to take part in all lessons including swimming. Should your child be unable to take part in the planned activity due to injury please send them with their kit and a note asking if they could join a less strenuous lesson or take a less active role in the planned activity. The PE staff will use their professional judgement and advise your child of the best way to take part in a lesson. If your child is ill and unable to take part in PE then they should be recovering from the illness at home.
