Aims of the project

The aim of the partnership is to provide a central location for assessment of the practical component of A Level PE examinations for cluster schools and Pocklington School students. The service ensures that examination and compliance requirements are fulfilled.

Pupils from Pocklington School and cluster schools benefit from this partnership, as well as providing a central moderation venue for the examination board.

Background and goals

Pocklington School offered its sports facilities as a central moderation venue.

Resources

Access and use of all sports facilities must be organised.  In addition, the grounds staff prepare the facilities, catering staff provide lunch and refreshments and there is medical cover for the duration of the moderation period.

Three teaching staff from Pocklington School orchestrate the service with help from nine external teaching staff

Impact

Positive feedback has been received from examination boards and cluster schools and Pocklington School continues to be used as a venue for the moderation of the practical component of A Level PE.

Pupil involvement

Six cluster schools use Pocklington School for practical PE examination moderation. In 2017, there were 28 external A level students and 28 GCSE students.

Frequency and duration

This is an annual event, which is held over 2 days.
