Physical Education

All students in KS3 and KS4 take part in a wide range of physical activities that develop their teamwork and communication skills. These include team games such as Football, Rugby, Netball and Basketball; net games such as Badminton and Tennis and striking and fielding games such as Rounders, Cricket and Softball.

Students also work on performing at maximum levels and reaching their personal best in Athletics and they develop their creativity and ability to accurately replicate actions in Gymnastics and Dance. In addition to this, students take part in fitness sessions that develops an understanding of their current levels of fitness and exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.

In all areas of the PE curriculum pupils are encouraged to take the lead in small groups experiencing different roles in sport such as umpire, coach, score keeper, time keeper and captain. PE lessons regularly feature self and peer assessment where students evaluate their own and others performances making suggestions about how they can improve.

Students develop knowledge and understanding of the rules of each activity and are able to follow rules understanding their importance including reasons of safety. The PE department offers an extensive extra-curricular program that includes Football, Rugby, Gymnastics, Basketball, Badminton, Cross Country and Netball in winter months and Athletics, Cricket, Rounders and Tennis in summer months.

Students regularly represent the Academy in many of these sports and enjoy being part of a team. We have strong community links with local clubs that involves students visiting clubs and club coaches coming into school to run session during lessons and after school. These links include the Leeds Rhinos Foundation who we have a particularly strong link with, which has resulted in players visiting the school.

Students who enjoy PE and achieve well at Key Stage 3 go on to study our popular BTEC Sport course where we have maintained a 100% pass rate over the last 4 years.

At Leeds East Academy we ensure that all students are working towards achieving fantastic BTEC Sport results from year 7 through our next steps curriculum. Students cover BTEC Sport content through engaging lessons and challenging material in all year groups. This has ensured we maintain our fantastic pass rates year on year and achieve our best results ever in 2016/17.

Students will complete 4 units to determine their overall grade. 3 units are coursework based units and 1 unit is an exam which they will sit in year 10.
