Aims

At Finham Park 2 our main aim is to inspire all of our students to lead an active and healthy lifestyle whilst at school and to continue these choices into adulthood. We achieve this aim by teaching lessons that focus on:

  1. Creating an enjoyable environment for students to look forward to their P.E lessons
  2. Challenging students of all abilities to reach their full potential
  3. Informing students on how to improve physically, psychologically and sociologically
  4. Ensuring that all students are active and have the opportunity to experience a range of roles (referee, coach, manager) within their lessons

Exceptions

We pride ourselves at working as a team. Where students and staff members adhere to the expectation that everyone tries their best to be the best, everyone stays focussed and everyone listens with respect.

Furthermore, to help us achieve this we also expect all students to bring their full P.E kit (top, shorts/skort, socks and non-marking sporty trainers) to every lesson. This is monitored via regular kit inspections.

Curriculum Overview

Our P.E curriculum has been designed to offer all our students the opportunity to participate in a large range of traditional sports and alternative activities. Additionally, we do not believe in having “girl sports” and “boy sports”. We believe that all students deserve the same experiences in life which will help them to make positive choices in relation to activity levels as an adult.

KS3 (Years 7 and 8)

All students have 2 x 1 hour lessons per week. They will either be grouped within their normal classes or set roughly by ability level. However, this changes every year in relation to the needs of that cohort of students.

This year, Year 7 and 8 students will be taught the following sports and activities:

Football, Netball, Tag Rugby, Floor Gymnastics, Circuit Training, Badminton, Introduction to GCSE P.E Theory, Basketball, Table-tennis, Boxercise, Fitness, Team Building Activities, Indoor Cricket, Dodgeball, Athletics, Tchouk Ball and Rounders.

KS4 (Years 9, 10 and 11)

All students have 1 x 2-hour lesson per week. They will also either be grouped within their normal classes or set roughly by ability level.

This year, Year 9 and 10 students will be taught the following sports and activities:

Football, Full Contact/Tag Rugby, Badminton, Netball, Volley Ball, Hockey, Ultimate Frisbee, Basketball, Boxercise, Fitness, Gymnastics, Tchouk Ball, Table-Tennis, Athletics, Softball, Team Building Activities, Indoor Cricket, Rounders and Dodgeball

Sports Day 2018

GCSE PE OCR

At the end of Year 8, all students will choose their GCSE options to study for the next three years. At FP2, we offer all our students the opportunity to study GCSE P.E (OCR). This course suits students who regularly compete in physical activity outside of school. Lessons will consist of one theory (classroom-based lessons) and one practical per week. However, as the course goes on students will do more theory than practical lessons. Students will study a variety of different sporting activities as well as developing their knowledge and understanding of key theoretical areas connecting to sports performance. The course is broken down into 60% theory, 30% practical & 10% coursework.

OOSHL (Out of School Hours Learning)

At the end of the school day (3pm), students have the opportunity to participate in a range of after school clubs and activities. Each term, we adapt and change our clubs to help us focus on fixtures and listening to student feedback and interests. This year we will be offering: Football, Rugby, Netball, Badminton, Cheerleading, Fitness, Cricket, Trampolining, Rounders and Tennis.
