Key Stage 3

Physical Education in Year 7, 8 & 9

Key Stage 3 Overview

Students should build on and embed the physical development and skills learnt in Key Stages 1 and 2, become more competent, confident and expert in their techniques, and apply them across different sports and physical activities.

They should understand what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work. They should develop the confidence and interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school and in later life, and understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.

Students are taught in single gender, mixed ability groups in Year 7 and the level of work covered will depend on prior attainment.
