Home Learning Pledges

Key Stage 4 (Years 9, 10 & 11) - GCSE PE - 1 task per fortnight maximum 60 minutes (we encourage all students to engage in one extra-curricular club or activity)

Key Stage 4 (Years 9, 10 & 11) - CORE PE - No Homework (we encourage all students to engage in one extra-curricular club or activity)

 Department Information and Policies

Changing Room Policy

  • Students entering the changing rooms should be aware that they are our changing rooms and not theirs to do what they want in
  • Students should be encouraged to respect our / their school teaching environment
  • Registers must be taken for all lessons
  • Registers must be taken formally at the beginning of the lesson, recording: absence / non-participation due to sickness note or no kit
  • No keys should be offered to students in order to open the changing rooms without a member of staff present
  • All students should be checked for ‘health and safety’ concerns, jewellery, hair, footwear etc.
  • Students should bring full kit on all occasions. If not participating practically they will perform other roles: coaching, managing, equipment helper etc. This will give the opportunity for students to explore their own personal learning and participation styles in line with the National Curriculum

Sanctions

Staff are encouraged to use their own judgement and discretion. The focus is to encourage participation, eliminating confrontation.

Any pupil whose attitude to Physical Education gives concern should be referred through the department system, and school behavioural policy for further action, if deemed necessary. Physical activity is not to be used as a punishment.

Valuables

Changing rooms will be locked during the lesson but the department takes no responsibility for lost valuables.

In the case of injury or illness it is expected that students will bring and change into weather appropriate kit for their lessons, for long term injury, provision will be made on an individual basis.

Lost Property

Named articles can be returned via the Form Tutor. All un-named articles should be placed in the lost property box in the House Hub

Jewellery

No jewellery is to be worn during lessons or extra curricular activities, this includes new piercings.

At Impington we are sensitive to the medical and cultural needs of all of our students, however if jewellery is worn due to these reasons, students will still be asked to remove or cover them for health and safety reasons and seen fit by the member of staff.

Equipment

All students are to be encouraged to handle equipment safely, as set out in the schemes of work, and to look after it.
No pupil should expect to take equipment without being supervised.
All equipment should be returned to its correct storage point at the end of every lesson. The doors leading to the gymnasium and the sports hall should be locked at the end of a session.
