This is a two year course beginning in S3. Pupils will get practical experience within a variety of activities including:
Performance and the development of performance is the key to success within NQ PE. This is based on practical performance but also on a study of the Factors which Impact on Performance (FIP’s).
Factors are grouped within:
- Physical Factors
- Emotional Factors
- Mental Factors
- Social Factors
Performance is assessed via a special ‘One-off Performance’. Assessments are made by School PE Staff.
Pupils must also complete a portfolio which covers the FIP’s. This must be completed under controlled conditions and within school.
There is no externally marked assessment or examination within NQ PE.
