Physical Education Grade Ladders

Objective AO1-3 TheoryAO1-3 PracticalAO4 Practical
Grade 9Accurately demonstrate and critically apply the most relevant and comprehensive knowledge and understanding of a wide range of factors affecting performance and involvement in physical activity and sport.Use of advanced, specialist terminology to critically analyse and evaluate their own and others’ performance.Safely and extremely effectively apply an extensive range of appropriate techniques, strategies and/or compositional ideas demonstrating a consistently highly skilled and superbly controlled performance.
Grade 8Demonstrate and apply relevant and comprehensive knowledge and understanding of a wide range of factors affecting performance and involvement in physical activity and sport using accurate specialist terminology.Critically analyse and evaluate a wide range of information about performance to draw well evidenced conclusions. Safely and effectively apply a wide range of appropriate techniques, strategies and/or compositional ideas demonstrating a consistently skilled and controlled performance.
Grade 7Demonstrate a range of relevant knowledge and understanding of different factors affecting performance and involvement in physical activity. Analyse and evaluate a varied range of information regarding an individual’s or teams’ performance drawing on areas for improvement. Safely apply a wide range of appropriate techniques, strategies and/or compositional ideas demonstrating a skilled and controlled performance.
Grade 6Accurately evaluating and analysing appropriate knowledge and understanding of a range of factors affecting performance.Accurately analysing and evaluating a range of information about the performance to draw on a reasonable conclusion with supporting evidence.Safely apply an increasing range of appropriate techniques, strategies and/or compositional ideas demonstrating a consistently capable and controlled performance.
Grade 5Demonstrate mostly accurate and appropriate knowledge and understanding of a range of factors affecting performance and involvement in physical activity and sport using mostly accurate specialist terminology.Analyse and evaluate a range of information about performance to draw reasoned conclusions supported by evidence.Safely apply a range of appropriate techniques, strategies and/or compositional ideas demonstrating a capable and controlled performance.
Grade 4Begin to accurately evaluate and analyse appropriate knowledge and understanding of a range of factors affecting performance.Begin to accurately analyse and evaluate a range of information about the performance to draw on a reasonable conclusion with supporting evidence. Safely apply a wide range of basic techniques, strategies and/or compositional ideas demonstrating consistent control in their performance.
Grade 3Brief explanation of factors that affect performance in sport and physical activity.Basic explanation of elements of techniques and performance. E.g. explains that heart rate increases and decreases depending on the intensity of the activity.Safely apply a range of basic techniques, strategies and/or compositional ideas demonstrating increasing control in their performance.
Grade 2Demonstrate some relevant knowledge and understanding of some factors affecting performance and involvement in physical activity and sport using everyday language.Interpret a range of information about performance to draw simple conclusions.Safely apply basic techniques, strategies and/or compositional ideas demonstrating some control in their performance.
Grade 1Identify some factors that affect performance in sport and physical activity. Identify some basic elements of techniques and performance. Safely apply some basic techniques, strategies and/or compositional ideas demonstrating limited control in their performance.
GoldIndependently identifies at least 1 factor that affects performance in sport and physical activity. Independently identifies at least 1 basic element of technique and performance.Demonstrates limited techniques and accuracy in the performance of a skill but is unable to adapt to any open skills/challenges and rarely produces the intended result/accuracy.
SilverIdentifies at least 1 factor that affects performance in sport and physical activity with guidance from teacher. Identifies at least 1 basic element of technique and performance with guidance from the teacher.Demonstrates one simple technique in the performance of a skill but is unable to adapt technique in closed skills and very rarely produces the intended result/accuracy.
BronzeIdentifies 1 factor that affects performance in sport and physical activity with guidance from teacher. Identifies 1 basic element or technique or performance with guidance from the teacher.Attempts to demonstrate appropriate skills that are appropriate to task.
Attempts to outwit opponents.
Attempts to produce intended result/accuracy.
