Assessment

Formative: Assessment and questioning describes previous performances, knowledge and level of skill and develops goal-orientated performances. An applied model of coaching delivery and sports leadership is reflected upon. Children are given feedback on their refereeing and umpiring skills across the different sports units. They are also guided through the responsibilities for taking ownership of their health and safety. Observations and oral feedback are ongoing throughout each lesson and each unit to ensure learners are continuing to enjoy and participate in sport. They are challenged to be positive role models for the wider school community to demonstrate levels of good conduct, good sportsmanship and good citizenship throughout.

Summative: At the end of each episode, lesson, unit and term students are given summative feedback on their participation, sportsmanship, coaching and their refereeing. Children actively compete against each other in teams and houses to develop their team-orientated skills of motivation and comradery. This allows us to track progression throughout the term and across the year within the different sporting situations.
