PE and School Sport
Imps in the Community coaches will deliver fun, engaging and progressive PE and School Sport lessons across a range of topics/sports. Our staff will write and deliver lesson plans that achieve outcomes of the National Curriculum. All sessions planned and delivered sessions are tailored, which can challenge all abilities and keep lessons fun. To ensure consistency, your school will be assigned a Lead Coach at the start of the year whom staff and pupils can build strong relationships with and be an extension of your team. Teachers will have the opportunity to observe all lessons, resulting in an increase in confidence and skills base for teaching a range of sports tailored to their specific skills and development needs. All our sessions are assessment-led through iCoach4Sport, meaning each session is specifically tailored to the ability of the children within your schools classes.
After School Clubs
We are able to provide after school clubs of any sporting variety to support a school in their extended provision. Our after school clubs can provide an opportunity to be open to all or specifically work with a school team. Furthermore, as part of our drive to provide even more extended provision to the many primary schools we work with, we are running agility and multi-skills After School Clubs. Designed to improve and develop key motor skills, such as running, jumping and balancing, we deliver to all year groups and can tailor the activity to the schools or children's requirements.
CPD for Teachers
Our aim is to support teachers to deliver PE and school sport in line with the curriculum. Normally done as a 6 week block, our coach’s work alongside your schools teaching staff in order to help raise confidence, subject knowledge and the skills required to deliver and achieve sustainable high quality PE and school sport.
Typically, this programme allows your teaching staff to take an active role within the sessions being delivered. Using a mentoring approach, teaching staff will receive detailed planning, feedback and assistance on numerous different aspects of PE and school sport. Not only does this service allow your schools teaching staff to be up-skilled in all areas of the national P.E curriculum, it also allows your pupils to receive high quality lessons, which are all planned and prepared specifically for the classes and children within your school.
Stand Up Speak Up
We have designed an Anti Racism Programme to support schools around the subject of Culture, Diversity and Racism.
The programme is delivered as 6 x 1 hour lessons which covers topics such as Stereotyping, Racism, Being Unique, Identity and Campaigning against Racism.
The programme uses sport which is a universal subject to bring the subject to life. We use a wide range of activities and games to educate the children and create an environment that the topics are able to be discussed.
This 6 week (1 hour per week) programme aimed at KS1 children through the subject of Football. The aim is to teach ABC's (Agility, Balance and Co-ordination) in a fun way and introduce basic skills that are transferable across sports. This is a great way of adding enrichment to the existing FUNdamentals sessions being delivered within the PE National Curriculum within these year groups.
