Introduction

Welcome to the PE department. Students at The Jubilee Academy who choose to study PE will have the opportunity to take part in both practical and theoretical elements of the course.  The subject is provided for all students in Key Stage 3 and is an option at GCSE.

Student progress is regularly assessed throughout the school year. This is achieved through both formative and summative assessment. Students are provided with feedback in line with school’s policy on Teaching and Learning. This will include regular ‘4 part-marking’, as well as through peer- and self-assessment.
