PE at Chandlers Ridge

The PE curriculum throughout school focuses on the fundamentals of movement skills, encouraging children to become increasingly competent and confident in their agility, balance and coordination as well as strength, flexibility, technique and control. Our curriculum is supported, where appropriate, with specialist coaches in gymnastics and dance as well as coaches from Middlesbrough Football Club Foundation. In addition, through our Cleveland Schools Sports Partnership, there are regular opportunities for children in all year groups to participate in competitive sporting competitions.

Our curriculum intends to get every children to age related expectations or above. A variety of support materials enhance the long term plan, which included TOPS cards and Twinkl planning. Our ambitious and sequential curriculum equips children with the skills to participate in gymnastics, dance, athletics and games. Competition id shied away from and quality first teaching and modelling allows all children to progress.

Staff have received training from a variety of sources, including MFC, The FA and a qualified gymnastics coach. When skills have been taught and modelled, staff use questioning and observation to give feedback. This can be encourage, improve or celebrate performance.

Teachers assess termly, based on observations and pupil voice suggests that PE is a popular subject, in which support can be offered through lessons and extra-curricular clubs.
