Attainment in P.E. and Level Descriptors
The attainment targets in PE sets out the knowledge, skills and understanding that students of different abilities and maturities are expected to have by the end of each key stage. Attainment targets consist of eight level descriptions of increasing difficulty, plus a description of exceptional performance above level 8. Each level description describes the type and range of performance that students working at that level should characteristically demonstrate.
The level descriptions provide the basis for making judgements about students' performance at the end of key stages 1, 2 and 3.
The majority of students are expected to work at:
levels 1-3 in key stage 1 and attain level 2 at the end of the key stage
levels 2-5 in key stage 2 and attain level 4 at the end of the key stage
levels 3-7 in key stage 3 with the majority attaining level 5/6 at the end of the key stage.
By indicating expectations at particular levels and by charting broad progression in the subject, the level descriptions can also inform planning, teaching and assessment.
To assist students to understand the level descriptors, the department have adapted each descriptor. The aim of this is to allow all students access to the information required to assess their own learning.
