(8 marks) John is a 15-year-old pupil at a school with a well-established Physical Activity Policy. He has
just started his GCSE PE course, which he has opted to take as one of his subject options.
John does not play any sport to a particularly high standard, but he is very keen on physical
education. He always takes part in all of his school PE lessons and is a regular participant in
extra-curricular sporting activities. When he chose his options, he was particularly interested
in the fact that he did not have to be a player/performer in all of his assessments and could be
assessed in different roles. He has regularly been an official in school football fixtures and is
interested in being assessed as an official.
John thinks that football is probably his strongest sport and that this will be one of his
assessments. After talking to his teachers, he has also decided that he will choose ‘exercising
safely and effectively to improve health and well-being, as in Fitness and Health Activities’ as
his second assessment area for his practical work. In order to prepare himself fully for this,
John has just joined his local fitness gym, which shares the school fitness facilitie EXAM QUESTIONS On your A3 sheet; 5 mintues on your tables to write down as many questions about the learning objectives as you can. Quick fire question and answer session Preliminary Material
