Core PE

Course Overview:

The aim of this course is for students to develop a lifelong passion about participating in physical activity and maintaining a healthy active lifestyle when they leave Buxton School.  The National Curriculum in KS4 emphasises the importance of understanding what is required to live a healthy active life and have experience of Outdoor and Adventurous Activities (OAA).  Our curriculum will reflect this

It is important to remember that due to health and safety some activities may require students to have particular equipment such as football boots.

Other activities may be available throughout the year depending on availability of specialist facilities and may come at a cost to students should they wish to participate in these activities. There will be at least two options available at school that do not require any additional cost to the students or specialist equipment.

 

Options choices within PE

We offer two courses within options PE. The syllabuses are very similar but the assessment process is completely different. We will assess pupils early in year 9, ensuring your child studies the course that provides the best opportunities for them to succeed.
