Know what a high-quality PE curriculum looks like
Your school’s PE curriculum should:
- Inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities
- Provide opportunities for pupils to:
- Become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness
- Compete in sport and other activities to build character and embed values such as fairness and respect
This is explained on page 79 of the Governance Handbook.
You don't need to get bogged down in the operational details of how teachers will deliver PE in your school. If you're interested, you can look at the requirements set out in the National Curriculum for PE. You can also read Ofsted's research review for more information about the evidence base for understanding subject quality in PE.
Monitor PE in the same way you monitor the curriculum more broadly
