Physical Education

What is Physical Education? 

Physical Education is the study of movement. This involves both ‘learning to move’ (i.e. becoming more physically competent) and ‘moving to learn’ (e.g. learning through movement, a range of skills and understandings beyond physical activity, such as co-operating with others). 

Why do we teach Physical Education at HASU? 

Physical Education fosters student’s ability to move efficiently, effectively and safely, and to gain an understanding of what they’re doing. At Harris Academy Sutton we strive to develop students Physical Literacy; the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding that provides children with the movement foundation for lifelong participation in physical activity. Physical Literacy is as important to children’s overall development as literacy and numeracy.   

How do we teach Physical Education at HASU at Key Stage 3?  

It is the aim of the PE Department to provide students with Meaningful Experiences (namely, fun, challenge, positive social interaction, personal relevant meaning and improved motor competence) as evidence suggests these can lead to lifelong participation in physical activity.

In Year 7 students will focus primarily on the development of transferable skills, commonly used across a variety of sports and physical activities. In Year 8, we challenge our students to become versatile performers; students will develop activity specific skills and knowledge, through practice in isolation, and appropriate conditioned competition, preparing them for the rigour of GCSE PE ahead of their Year 9 options. In Year 9 students become strategic and critical thinkers. Students are required to put the skills attained in years 7 and 8 into action through the implementation of tactics, strategies and compositional ideas.

At Harris Academy Sutton PE lessons take place on our MUGA (multi-use-games-area), School Hall, and state of the art Sports Hall. 

Learning in PE is divided into four core categories, bringing both breadth and balance to our curriculum: 

Aesthetic - Physical activities that are creative and involve a combination of movements that require precision, fluency such as gymnastics, trampolining and dance. 

Team and individual sports - Physical activities that require physical skill, agility and stamina, such as net and wall, invasion and striking and fielding games. 

Anaerobic and aerobic fitness activities - Physical activities that are sustained and require low to high intensity, such as fitness and athletics.  

I.I.D (Integrity, Innovation and Discovery) – Physical activities aligned with our core values such as outdoor adventurous activities, Paralympic and disability sport, and alternative/less traditional sports.  

How do we teach Physical Education at HASU at Key Stage 4?  

As students move into key stage 4, PE remains as a core, non-examined unit for all pupils, whilst they also get the choice to select GCSE PE as one of their options subjects. Both are important as part of our broad and balanced key stage 4 curriculum. Students who select GCSE PE will study physical factors affecting performance, socio-cultural issues and sports psychology whilst in the classroom and the role of a performer in the sports related arena. In year 10 Core PE, we focus on leadership and interdependence and the aim is purely to promote engagement and lifelong activity. Students are given the autonomy to democratically select the activities they study within 3 strands; traditional, health based, and alternative activities.  

What exam board do we study at Key Stage 4?  

Students who select GCSE PE follow the OCR (J587) specification. The specification can be found here

 


 

Surrey County Cricket Club and Harris Federation to launch Cricket Programme for Sixth Form Pupils 

Surrey is encouraging students applying for sixth form studies in September 2024 to apply for the Club’s new Sixth Form State School Cricket Programme at Harris Academies across Surrey. Harris Academy Sutton is thrilled to be part of the programme, offering 6th form students a sporting pathway to accompany their academic studies.  

Chief Executive at Surrey Cricket, Steve Elworthy, said “We’re delighted to be working with some fantastic schools in the county to support young people from state schools to learn more about a career in cricket whether that’s on or off the pitch. This programme will help the students to improve their cricketing skills but also help to develop the valuable life skills that will support them in their future careers.”

The programme is available to young people, both male and female, that have a developing talent for cricket and are looking to take their skills to the next level. It will also support those that want to learn more about a career in the sport.

Surrey is currently working with Harris Federation to offer students the opportunity to complete their sixth form academic studies alongside access to high quality cricket coaching and full strength and conditioning programme.

There will also be opportunities for those on the programme to learn more about cricket as a business via the employability workshops which offers opportunity for the students to learn more about roles associated with professional sport such as Marketing, Media, Groundskeeping and Hospitality.

 

All students will undertake ECB coaching qualifications alongside certified courses in scoring and umpiring, to support students to gain employment within the world of cricket.   SCCC cricket applications are open now, along with the application to attend a cricket trial in October Half term, Further dates are likely to be added in due course. Harris Federation academic applications will be open from October 2023. Harris Academy Sutton will host it’s Sixth Form Open Evening on the 30th November.
