Reinstate Taekwondo to the activity lists for GCSE and A Level PE

Petition Details

For GCSE and A Level PE you cannot choose Taekwondo as a single sport - this should be changed so that children have that option.

Additional Information

From 2016, children have no longer been able to include the Olympic Sport of Taekwondo in their practical and theoretical assessments for their school GCSE, AS and A Level examinations in Physical Education in England.

The Government has said that decisions about what activities are on this list is based solely upon whether they met certain considerations and are a suitable means of assessing students’ skills as part of a PE qualification.

We believe it is unfair to exclude Taekwondo from this list, and that it should be reinstated.
