Department Mission Statement
Physical education at Norwich school aims to provide all girls and boys the opportunity to develop physical competence, self -esteem and to value the benefits of exercise and a healthy life style. Curricular and extra curricular sport will provide experience of a wide range of activities which will lead to sport for life.
AS Content summary:
The unit content is divided into two sections, with each section outlining the specific knowledge and understanding required by the pupil.
The first section will develop the pupil's knowledge and understanding of what constitutes a healthy and active lifestyle. Pupils will investigate how the body responds and adapts to exercise, the components of physical and skill fitness and different methods of fitness training. The rationale behind carrying out fitness assessments and the protocols associated with recognised fitness tests will also be considered.
The second section encourages the pupil to develop their knowledge and understanding of how competitive sport has developed over time. They will learn how a lifelong involvement in sport is encouraged.
Unit 1: Participation in Sport and Recreation
First assessment: June 2009
The assessment of this unit is through a 1 hour and 30 minute examination paper which is set and marked by Edexcel. The paper will be a question-and-answer booklet, consisting of short-answer and extended-writing type questions, all of which are compulsory.
Unit 2: The Critical Sports Performer
The fundamental aim of this unit is to engage participants in four tasks. These tasks will offer a framework of opportunities to develop practical experiences and conduct independent research into the structure, provision and analysis of physical activity. Pupils will have the chance to develop their performance in two chosen roles from a choice of three (performer, leader and official) and record their performance over a period of time.
They will then undertake a study into the provision for all three roles at a local level, followed by a study of the provision for one role at the national level.
Lastly, they will produce an analysis of their performances in the first task.
This unit is internally assessed, through a portfolio of evidence, for the four tasks within the unit. Pupils must complete all four tasks.
Unit 3: Preparation for Optimum Sports Performance
Pupils will develop a knowledge and understanding of the short- and long-term physiological and psychological preparations made by elite athletes. They will consider the short- and long-term technical preparations required, eg selection of appropriate kit and equipment, the use of training camps, different types of ergonomic aids.
The assessment of this unit is through a 2-hour examination paper which is set and marked by Edexcel. The paper will be a question-and-answer booklet, consisting of short-answer and extended-writing type questions, all of which are compulsory.

Unit 4: The Developing Sports Performer *Unit code 6PE04
The tasks undertaken in Unit 2: The Critical Sports Performer lay the foundation for pupils to specialise in one practical performance role and progress this performance,and undertake three further tasks. Pupils will construct a development plan to further progress their performance as performers, leaders or officials. They will also research one of these roles in an international context, taking in grassroots participation, elite performance and other factors. Pupils will then continue to refine their performances in one chosen role. Lastly, they will plan their life in physical activity, from the Advanced Subsidiary course to the potential opportunities and performance structure open to them, thereby outlining a ‘time line’, through school, college, university, club, veterans and future roles.
Pupils must undertake four tasks for assessment in this unit. They will be required to submit their completed tasks for internal centre marking using the Edexcel criteria, and for external moderation with evidence being submitted on the pupil's own CD portfolio.
