PE – KS4
Key Stage 4 – PE
In years 10 and 11, pupils have one double lesson of core PE once a fortnight and we offer Edexcel GCSE Physical Education.
The GCSE course is assessed over two units
Unit 1 is externally assessed through a written examination paper of 1 hour and 30 minutes. This will contribute a maximum of 40% towards your total marks.
Unit 2 is assessed in two sections.
Section 1 – Four practical performances in the role of either player/participant, leader or official. You can achieve 48% of your marks from your four performances, two of which may be in the role of a leader or official.
Section 2 – Analysis of Performance in one of the chosen activities. This is worth 12% of the marks and should include planning, performing and evaluating a Personal Exercise Programme.
