The opinions of pupils in Hollybrook are valued and therefore pupils are very involved in their own learning throughout the PE department.  To enhance understanding and meet the needs of each individual a variety of teaching methods are used throughout the blocks of work. Over the year pupils are given the opportunity to participate in a number of different activities, these include Basketball, Swimming, Badminton, Cricket, Dodgeball, Circuits, Netball, Relaxation, Yoga and Summer Games. Our pupils also have opportunities to take part in Track Cycling and Kayaking.

 

Making Connections in Their Learning

 

As Hollybrook is a small close networking school the opportunity to manage successful interdisciplinary projects is high.  The PE department currently working with the  Science department to log pupil’s progress with their fitness and also to explore Outdoor Educational opportunities through participating in the John Muir Award.

 

How Your Child’s Progress Will Be Assessed

 

Pupils are continuously assessed in PE (teacher evaluation, self/peer assessment, video assessment). Pupils will be assessed throughout each of the activities.  TheMulti Stage Fitness test 3 times a year to allow pupils to track their level of fitness.

 

How Your Child’s Progress Will Be Reported To You

 

Daily pupil tracking is used by each member of the PE department, this information will then be used to provide pupil tracking data alongside PE Log Books (S1-S3).  This information is sent home once a year.  Individual report cards are completed once a year to provide more detail on the progress of each child.
