Lyndon School Physical Education Department Participation Requirements

Physical Education (PE) is a compulsory part of the National Curriculum and plays an important role in leading and maintaining a healthy active lifestyle. Participation within Physical Education lessons are vitally important to ensure students continually make progress within PE.

 

All students are expected to participate and bring Lyndon School PE kit for all timetabled PE lessons in both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4, failure to do so will result in the appropriate sanctions (see below).

 

Exemption from physical participation in lessons

If a student is injured or unable to participate physically in a lesson, a dated note from a parent/carer must be provided at the beginning of the lesson clearly stating why the student cannot participate and for how long. For long term injuries, a doctor’s note must be provided.

 

In addition to the note, students must still bring and wear their full PE kit as they are still actively involved in the lesson, and may be asked to officiate, coach, score or assist in other ways. Students may also be outside for their lessons and by wearing PE kit rather than their school uniform, it can keep their uniform clean and dry for the remainder of the school day. Failure to adhere to the above will result in the student following the sanction ladder for not bringing appropriate kit to the lesson.

 

In the event of extreme injuries/circumstances (i.e. broken leg) we understand that students will not be physically able to get changed for their PE lessons. In this instance this must be agreed prior to the lesson with the PE Team Leader and the PE teacher.

 

Active Participation

Whilst in PE lessons, the students must participate as directed by their teacher. If students are failing to participate, the school Behavior for Learning (BfL) system will be followed.

Sanctions:

Key Stage 3

  • First occasion, a warning will be given and PE kit will be issued to the student to
    wear and participate in the lesson.

     

  • Occasion 2-5, a consequence (C3) will be given and PE kit will be issued to the student
    to wear and participate in the lesson.

     

  • Occasion 6, an isolation (C4) will be given and PE kit will be issued to the student to
    wear and participate in the lesson.

Key Stage 4

  • First occasion, a warning will be given and PE kit will be issued to the student to
    wear and participate in the lesson.

     

  • Occasion 2-3, a consequence (C3) will be given and PE kit will be issued to the student
    to wear and participate in the lesson.

     

  • Occasion 4, an isolation (C4) will be given and PE kit will be issued to the student to
    wear and participate in the lesson.
  • As KS4 only have one lesson per week, the steps before a C4 is issued are fewer.

 

If a student refuses to wear appropriate PE kit that is provided, on the first occasion this will lead to a C3 for defiance. If this is repeated an isolation (C4) will be issued for repeated defiance.

 

The sanction ladder will reset every term (autumn, spring and summer) to give students an opportunity to have a fresh start.
