Woodchester Endowed Primary School was used as a Hub for the REAL PE curriculum CPD. This involved a range of local schools receiving training on the premises and sharing our practice. PE lessons observed showed that children engage well and make progress across all of the “cogs” of effective PE. This has impacted on high attainment in PE throughout the school, as shown by the most recent assessments. This evidence supports the observed assertion that the teaching of PE is at least Good at Woodchester and in many cases better.
