As a department, we offer our students the opportunity to experience the key processes of Physical Education:
Our Key Stage 3 curriculum refines fundamental motor skills and places them in a range of sporting contexts. Students are assessed on physical competence, understanding of healthy and active lifestyles and their ability to evaluate and create solutions.
In Key Stage 4 students can elect to further their studies through GCSE Physical Education & the Junior Sports Leader Award.
Parents and students are reminded that PE kit is needed every lesson – the curriculum is delivered in a way that illness / injury can be accommodated in lessons through coaching/refereeing/assisting roles and the policy for no kit is clear. Notes can be made in organisers to make staff aware of illness/ injury. Students will be asked if they are able to get changed and take an active role in the lesson. Students are reminded that if they forget their kit they are to borrow kit from PE and return it at the end of the lesson.
The PE Department offers a range of extra curricular opportunities for students. The Martin High School has a reputation as a school that consistently produces competitive teams in a number of different areas and is active in the Leicestershire & Rutland sport community.
The Talent Academy Programme is a leadership programme, which aims to provide students with a route into sport that spans the Leicestershire and Rutland sport community. It is run in conjunction with other Charnwood schools and allows for students to develop leadership skills to run various sporting activities to both secondary and primary pupils from across the county. The programme requires an application at the start of Year 9 as places for the course are limited.
The programme will also address wider elements such as opportunities, career development and progression, as well as ensuring academic standards are kept at the highest possible level. Students will be expected to follow a strict behavioral contract throughout their time on the programme.
All pupils are expected to bring the correct P.E. kit to all lessons. Please click here for the full list.
