PE and Sports

“Since the 2013/14 Aspire Sports have supported Ryders Green Primary School with PE and school sport provision. Over this time Aspire Educators have delivered high quality PE lessons and extra-curricular clubs to pupils at Ryders Green and Aspire Mentors have worked alongside teachers to help increase subject knowledge, confidence, report writing and planning in a personalised, sustainable way. This support is led by specialist, qualified mentors and is focused on improving and evaluating pupil and teacher outcomes.

Within PE lessons, pupils take part in curriculum activities that are differentiated, assessed and have high activity levels. At the end of each term pupil assessments are completed which allows teachers to monitor pupil progress in PE.

Ryders Green put great emphasis on extra-curricular opportunities and improving health and wellbeing for pupils. Currently there are multiple lunch and after school clubs running each week that allow pupils of all ages to participate in a range of traditional and alternative sports and activities.”
