Please see below some information about the course covered during Key Stage 4. You will also find more information about the knowledge and skills covered booklet in a hyperlink below.  During each half-term your child will have regular ‘learning checks’ to assess how well they are progressing against the expected standards. If they do not reach the expected standard in any of these checks, they should be seeking help from their teacher regarding the best possible steps. Teachers will also be sharing with students examples of how to go ‘beyond the expected standards ‘and providing additional challenge.

KS4 Subject Information for Parents / Students

OCR Reformed (1-9) GCSE

The GCSE PE course aims to provide students with the opportunity to study Physical Education in an academic setting whilst allowing them to critically analyse and evaluate physical performance, whilst applying their experience of practical activities in developing their knowledge and understanding of the subject.

It is important to remember that GCSE PE isn’t just for those students who love to play sport. Whilst playing and training regularly is extremely important for GCSE PE, the course also offers a significant amount of theoretical content. If you have a passion for sport and are interested in how the body works during exercise, how sports psychology can influence a performer and how health, well-being and diet can impact a performer then GCSE PE is for you.

By taking GCSE PE students will be prepared for the further study of Physical Education or sports science courses as well as other related subject areas such as psychology, sociology and biology. Students will also develop the transferable skills that are in demand by further education, Higher Education and employers in all sectors of industry.

How will I be assessed?

GCSE PE is broken down into three components; two theoretical and one practical assessment. The theoretical element is assessed in two examination papers which are both sat at the end of Year 11. Each paper is worth 30% of the GCSE and lasts for 1 hour. All students sit the same exam papers. The practical element of the course is worth 40%.

Component 1

Paper 1- Physical Factors Affecting Performance

Overview:

This unit introduces and explores some of the physical factors which underpin participation and performance in physical activities and sports. Students will start to explore the ways in which parts of the human body work and function during physical activity and the physiological adaptations that can occur due to diet and training. Students will also develop their knowledge and understanding of the principles of training, why we train in different ways and how training plans can be made to optimise results.

 

  • Applied Anatomy and Physiology.

In this unit students will develop knowledge and understanding of the basic structures and functions of the body systems that are particularly important to physical activities and sports. They will also study the short and long-term effects of exercise on these systems, and how these effects can impact on physical fitness and performance. Students will also develop the ability to collect and use data, analyse movement and apply their knowledge and understanding, using examples from physical activity and sport.

 

The following topics will be covered in this unit:

 

1.1a) The structure and function of the skeletal system

1.1b) The structure and function of the muscular system

1.1c) Movement analysis

1.1d) The cardiovascular and respiratory systems

1.1e) The effect of exercise on the body systems.

  • Physical Training

Students will develop their knowledge and understanding of the components of fitness required for physical activities and sports and how each can be measured.  Students will also be able to apply their knowledge of training principles to personal exercise/training programmes to improve fitness, along with the knowledge of how to optimise training and helping to prevent injury.

 

The following topics will be covered in this unit:

 

1.2a) Components of fitness

1.2b) Applying principles of training

1.2c) Preventing injury in a physical activity and training.

 

Component 2

Paper 2- Socio-cultural issues and sports psychology

Overview:

Students will develop their knowledge of socio-cultural influences that impact on participation and performance in physical activities and sports. Students will also develop their knowledge and understanding of how sport impacts on society. Engagement patterns of different social groups will be understood by students, along with strategies to promote participation with practical examples. The commercialisation of physical activities and sports will be understood, including the influences of sponsorship and the media. Students will also develop their knowledge and understanding of ethical and socio-cultural issues in physical activities and sports.

2.1 Sociocultural influences

In this topic, students will develop their knowledge and understanding of the factors that continue to impact on physical activities and sports in the UK today. Students will be introduced to engagement patterns of different social groups in physical activities and sports and will develop their understanding of the influences of commercialism and the media on physical activities and sports.

 

The following topics will be covered in this unit:

 

2.1a) Engagement patterns of different social groups in physical activities and sports.

 

2.1b) Commercialisation of physical activity and sport.

 

2.1c) Ethical and socio-cultural issues in physical activity and sport.

 

2.2 Sports Psychology

In this topic students will develop their knowledge and understanding of the psychological factors that can affect performers. They will also develop their knowledge and understanding of how movement skills are learned and performed in physical activities and sports.

The following topics will be covered in this unit:

2.2a) Characteristics of skilful movement

2.2b) Classification of skills

2.2c) Goal setting

2.2d) Mental preparation

2.2e) Types of guidance and feedback

 

2.3 Health, fitness and well-being

In this topic students will develop their knowledge and understanding of the benefits of participating in physical activities and sport to health, fitness and well-being as well as having a clear definition of health and fitness. Students will know about the physical, emotional and social benefits as well as the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle.

 

The following topics will be covered in this unit:

2.3a) Health, fitness and well-being

2.3b) Diet and nutrition

 

Component 3- Non exam assessment

Section 1- Practical Assessment worth 30%

In Component 3, students are internally assessed through the non-exam assessment in performing three practical activities/sports and one performance analysis task. Students must perform in three practical activities, one from the ‘individual’ list, one from the ‘team’ list, and one other from either list. Students will be internally moderated and will receive a mark out of 20 for each one of their three sports.

Section 2- Analysing and Evaluating Performance worth 10%

In addition to three practical performances, students are required to demonstrate their ability to analyse and evaluate their own performance. This is done through a written piece of coursework where students have to, analyse aspects of personal performance in a practical activity, evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the performance and then produce an action plan which aims to improve the quality and effectiveness of the performance.
