Physical Education

The department’s approach caters for pupils of all differing physical abilities. Every student is exposed to a wide variety of physical and sporting disciplines: opportunities to participate in school and intra-form sport are available in abundance. Those displaying potential are encouraged to develop; those with talent and ability are pushed on. At Ercall Wood we have strong community links with local sports clubs and we are truly proud to be active participants in the success of the local community.

Every pupil participates 200 minutes of PE every fortnight, and students undertake a variety of activities in both inside and outside environments. Each activity takes place in blocks over a half term. The vaired curriclum includes sports such as, Football, Rugby, Netball, Basketball, Badminton, Volleyball, Trampolining, Dodgeball, Athletics, Rounders, Cricket, Softball. We also run a number of breakfast, lunchtime and after school sports clubs that is completely varied and hopefully appeals to a number of different students. These clubs change every half term but are advertising and shared with the students on the tv screens around the school.

Revision Exam Time

In year 10 pupils can opt for the academic study of Physical Education at GCSE level in addition to their regular 200 minute a fortnight schedule of PE lessons (Edexcel Board). The study of the subject is interesting, stimulating and rewarding with students able to be assessed either as a performer, official or a leader. The course is 60% practical (12% of the 60% is assessed as anaylsis of performance) and a 40% theory exam. GCSE theory lessons are taught in our own classroom which is located at the end of the sportshall on the top floor and overlooks the playing fields.

On-site facilities include a large sportshall which includes 8 basketball nets, 2 national standard indoor cricket nets, indoor football goals and a dance studio on the second floor with a viewing gallery nearby. In addition, some PE lessons incorporate the use of the AFC Telford’s astro-turf football pitches which are close by. Over the last few years we have also set up a link with Wellington Cricket Club of which we are able to use their facilities for matches and promote local talent. Along with this our Head of department Mr W Smithson is in charge of organising Cricket tournaments for Telford schools.
