Students cover a wide range of activities, starting with a compulsory core and developing into an options programme in Year Eleven. Our main aims are to promote a healthy lifestyle and a lifelong interest in sport and leisure. Our Upper School programme includes GCSE PE which is a popular option. The Department has strong links with the community especially in Hockey, Cricket, Netball and Football. We also provide a vast range of extra curricular activities, both on and off site. There are a variety of trips every year, including Skiing, Water Sports, Sports Tours and trips to international matches. We are active members of our local Sports Council and founder members of our local Junior Sports Council.
We have 2 Young Ambassadors for Sport from Year 10; these change every year. Students have to apply to become a young ambassador and have an interview. The Young Ambassadors attend a leadership conference run by Active Surrey and promote sport within school.They sometimes lead assemblies, take part in general leadership work, up date notice boards and sit on the Sports council.
We have a Sports Council which is made up of 18 pupils, 1 representative from each form. They act as a link between the P.E department and students. The Sports Council meets twice a term and discusses what is good and what could be better in P.E. The suggestions made by students are actioned whenever possible and enrich the P.E experience at Broadwater.
The PE assessment for all year groups will be grades 9-1.
As the top grade 9 is awarded as a percentage of the top grade 7 and 8 students nationally we will not issue grade 9 to students but students achieving grade 7 or 8 may achieve a 9.
Students in year 7 are unlikely to achieve above a grade 3 due to physical limitations of their age and skill levels but exceptions will obviously every student has the potential to achieve as high as they can and will be awarded a grade based on the average of their top 3 sports marks just as they are in the PE GCSE.
