Information for students planning on getting a PE contract

Students who are registered for practical classes in PE but are training or practice a sport outside of school with a coach or trainer they can get PE credits for that training. Students need to make a special contract with their teacher and honour its terms for the contract to be valid and replace regular PE classes at school.

Further information regarding PE contracts

Students can make a contract with their PE teacher to get PE  credits for activities outside of school.

This contract must be made before September 26th.

Students must meet with their PE teacher when they are available (see timetables above). Students will be given a contract form to fill out. If students are under 18 they need a parent’s/guardian’s signature. For the contract to be valid students must also turn in the following documents to their PE teacher before the listed deadlines:

  • A confirmation of attendance from their training facility (sports club, trainer, gym etc.) Please note that students get absences registered for PE classes they miss until the PE contract is turned in. Deadline: January 20th
  • A one-week training diary listing type of training, goals, how the training is carried out, details and times of each training session. Along with the training diary students must turn in proof of attendance for at least 15 training session since the start of school. Deadline: March 10th
  • A record of attendance for the semester, minimum of 30 training sessions since the start of school. This record can be verified by from the trainer or the training facility. Deadline: May 5 th

Students who meet these conditions will pass the course and receive a grade.

Please note the following:

  • These documents can only be turned in to the PE teachers, not to any other members of school staff.
  • Students on a PE contract will not get any registered absences as long as they turn in their documents on time. If they are turned in late or not at all, students will get a registered absence for PE each week until they turn in their documents. These absences are not removed.
  • Students receive grades in the course 3 times during the semester. The final evaluation is at the end of the semester when all documents have been turned in. Students who do not turn in all required documents automatically fail the course.

Students who turn in at least 50 practices (or other activities) over the semester, plus a detailed training diary, will receive full marks for the course.

If students fail to turn in all documents for evaluation (confirmation of attendance, one-week training diary, record of attendance) they have not honoured their contract and it is void which results in failing the course.
