Sample Autumn Term Overview

Download a typical ESS Autumn term overview with sports and topics. Each topic comes with a detailed lesson plan. We at ESS believe that children should have the opportunity to express themselves in a variety of sports. For this reason, every child is assessed on each sport rather than unit of work. Assessments are based on a ‘success criteria’ for each year group outlining children’s effort and attainment level.

From years of experience, we have noticed that children who are challenged through differentiation in sport, not only excel in physical activity, but also have a happier, healthier lifestyle.

All ESS staff are observed in their school at least once per term. A copy of the observation will be available upon request.

ESS Coaches are all Enhanced DBS checked, they are also certified in Safeguarding, Child Protection and First Aid.
