At the beginning of the year your teacher will go through the PE timetable with you. This is also displayed around all the indoor PE facilities and changing rooms. You will usually complete a sport for a half term before swapping to a new activity during the next half term. In lessons you will do a range of team and individual sports and physical activities.
At Fernwood we have a wide range of extracurricular activities that run at lunch time and after school. All students are welcome to all clubs which are free of charge. You also will have the opportunity to represent the school in a range of competitive sports should you wish too or you might want to join a club so you can be physically active with your friends. There will be an extracurricular timetable on your tutor display board and also on the school website.
if you are injured and unable to participate in a PE lesson you will be expected to bring in a signed note from your parent/guardian to explain why you cannot physically participate in the lesson. You will be expected injury permitting to bring your PE kit and get changed so your able to take part in the lesson as a coach, official or performance analyst.
All PE lessons are ran in single sex groups but all boys and girls groups experience the same curriculum. We do not set groups by ability in PE as students are grouped with pupils of the same gender from their tutor group plus one other tutor group.
The required PE kit required is available on the PE website page and available form Morleys. Any specialist kit for example shin pads and football boots will not be required during the first half term of the year 7 and PE teachers will give students notice as to when any specialist kit other than t-shirt, fleece/outdoor top, short, socks and trainers will be required.
