How to use this exemplar to improve practice?
This resource is designed to support practitioners in their understanding of the Significant Aspects of Learning in PE. The resource may also help:
- provide a focus for professional dialogue involving a group of staff within or across establishments;
provide a focus for dialogue involving parents;
- identify the range of work which exemplifies a SAL;
There is not an expectation that practitioners will replicate the activities highlighted in the video clips for learners in their own establishment.
In addition, when viewing the video clips, it should be recognised that while they ‘signpost’ a particular aspect of learning they also capture more than just the intended sequences. Consideration of this should be part of the professional dialogue which is generated by the clips.
The video clips can be used in conjunction with the Benchmarks to support teachers to understand standards and identify children's and young people's next steps in learning.
Moderation is the way in which practitioners arrive at a shared understanding of standards and expectations.
Moderation takes place at local, regional and national levels, including:
- teachers and practitioners at the same curriculum level;
- across a school or setting;
- across a group of schools/settings;
- within local authorities;
- through regional groups;
- via national groups.
