Quick Case Study: Supporting the more able

The Ofsted report ‘Beyond 2012: Outstanding Physical Education for all identified that the needs of the most able pupils were not always met within PE lessons. This resource, consisting of a film and supporting document, is designed to help PE departments in identifying and providing support for their most able pupils in PE and school sport. It also helps SGOs in working effectively to engage and support their secondary schools.

The film consists of six sections:

  • Ethos
  • Identification
  • Support
  • Competition
  • Assessment
  • Development

These can be viewed as a whole or watched as individual segments, with the supporting document providing materials to support teachers develop the six areas. Please enjoy the short film below as we dicuss how to extend the learning of the most able pupils in PE...
