Active Tameside provides high quality physical education curriculum, inspiring all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. This provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.
Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. The programme fully integrates the national curriculum for physical education aims, to ensure that all pupils:
“The coach has been modelling skills well to pupils and teaching skills rather than sports. He sets differentiated aims for each lesson and writes them on his whiteboard which staff love and always goes back to it at the end of the lesson to see what the pupils have learnt. He is very knowledgeable about a range of sports and enthusiastic when teaching them. He plans nice activities for Nursery and is very patient with them.” – Broadbent Fold Primary School, Dukinfield
“The coach is playing an important part in helping the development of staff CPD. He always has time to answer staff questions during sessions and explains ideas giving teachers a better insight to the teaching of PE.” – Rosehill Primary Academy, Ashton-Under- Lyne
“It’s been great working with the dance coach this half term. She has planned cheer routines for the upcoming Cheer Fest and consulted with me regarding costumes, names and cheers. She always catches up with me at lunch time and is eager to be involved/help with all aspects of Dance. It is always a pleasure to work with her, she is pro-active, professional and passionate about her job which is lovely to see!” – Parochial Primary School, Ashton-Under- Lyne
“The sports coach has settled brilliantly into school in such a short period of time. He has formed great relationships with the children and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge. The children are thoroughly enjoying his sessions and his lessons are engaging and exciting. He has gone above and beyond in being flexible during the lockdown period and in a relative short time he has formed great relationships with the staff team.” – Stalyhill Infants School, Stalybridge
“High levels of engagement in classes and behaviour during lessons has been excellent or has been dealt with accordingly by the coach. After school clubs have been well attended and well received.” – St Mary’s Primary School, Glossop
All teaching within school is delivered by Level 3 Association for Physical Education (afPE) qualified PE educators, who also hold National Governing Body (NGB) Level 2 coaching qualifications, which is an Ofsted recommendation.
Lesson plans are divided into specific year groups, which can be used by teachers to assist with the PE curriculum and enrichment planning.
Schemes of work for all programme elements in the KS1 & KS2 PE national curriculum are provided on a teacher lesson plan support portal, of which schools are given a unique username and password. The portal can be found here.

Progress assessments are completed each half term for every pupil and discussed with the PE subject lead and class teachers, which will then form the basis for an end of year PE report, examining child development and individual attainment against the PE national curriculum assessment framework.
KS2 fitness tracker – fitness development
To help with evidencing the impact of the PE premium funding, we have developed and piloted our KS2 fitness tracker. The tracker engages with every pupil in KS2 and provides them with a series of fitness based field tests throughout the school year.
All tests have been developed with our university partner, Salford University, and over the first year we recorded an overall increase in pupils’ fitness in KS2 of 78%. Tests are carried our as follows over the year and then schools are given data termly on each child, to show progression:
