At Falconer we believe that our students are increasingly developing their knowledge, understanding and skills in PE lessons and enrichment activities.
In our PE department we have embedded a culture of high expectations. Our leaders make sure that pupils achieve all that they are capable of, both academically and in terms of personal development.
We give to all students an equal opportunity in their education, whatever their ability, class, race or nature by offering board and balance curriculum, individual interventions and personalised approach to reach own potential and goals.
We provide pupils the chance to engage in a wide range of sports and physical activities which will inspire them to lead healthy, active lives after they leave Falconer School. In addition, through curricular and extra-curricular activities, pupils are developing their social, communication and independence skills, resulting in them being confident, resilient and independent young people who are prepared for adulthood.
Key Stage 3 overview
Through Years 7, 8 and 9 students experience a range of activities covering all aspects of the National Curriculum, developing the key concepts of leadership, teamwork, and Creativity and leading a Healthy Active Lifestyle. This includes a number of team and individual games across a variety of sports.
Key Stage 4 overview
Key stage 4 students move to student a BTEC Level 1-2 in sport which can help you take your first steps towards a career in sport and fitness. You’ll learn essential skills such as training for personal fitness, encouraging sports participation, and organising and leading events and activities.
BTEC are vocationally related qualifications, where learners develop knowledge and understanding by applying their learning and skills in a work-related context. The qualifications are popular and effective because they enable learners to take responsibility for their own learning and to develop skills that are essential for the modern-day workplace. These skills include: team working, working from a prescribed brief, working to deadlines, presenting information effectively, accurately completing administrative tasks and processes. BTEC Firsts motivate learners, and open doors to progression to further study and responsibility in the workplace.
