Physical Education


Facilities

Facilities at Blue Coat CE School and Music College include a Sports Hall, Gymnasium, Astro – Turf pitch, Tennis/Netball courts and extensive playing fields. All facilities are in constant use as we have a very full extra-curricular programme.

 

Curriculum

Pupils in Key Stage 3 are taught in single and mixed gender groups. The programme is planned in accordance with the National Curriculum requirements. In Key Stage 4, activities are offered on a single gender basis and taught within an options programme. Sport Education is prevalent and pupils are encouraged to perform in a variety of roles i.e coach, official and performer. GCSE PE has been operating for many years with more than 100 pupils studying this subject in Key Stage 4. Core PE, AS level PE, A2 level PE and the BTEC National Diploma in Sport are also taught at Key Stage 5.
