Most of our schools use our very popular Curriculum PE support to develop staff confidence and expertise within specific areas of the PE curriculum. This works by inviting KSA mentor representative to work alongside your class teacher for a number of weeks. This often leads to specific workshops where all teaching staff can benefit from the experience of KSA training schemes and delivery methods.
We find that teachers’ lack of detailed subject knowledge can limit the quality of feedback given to pupils about what they needed to do to improve. Again, this is inevitably always down to time or workload pressure. They can be unsure about the step-by-step stages in teaching skills, and are sometimes unaware of the standards that pupils should achieve by the end of each key stage.
