Curriculum Delivery

Rugby League (PE)

Our team of community coaches are qualified to UKCC Level 2 standard and are experienced in the delivery of Rugby League across many age ranges and levels of ability. Our coaches also attend any CPD events to ensure their coaching remains current and is of the highest possible standard. Sessions are designed to incorporate curriculum standard education throughout delivery and meet the Department for Educations curriculum standards.


Our delivery for Key Stage 1 includes:


  • master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending


Our delivery for Key Stage 2 includes:


  • use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
  • play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
  • develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics


Our delivery for Key Stage 3&4 includes:


  • use a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in direct competition through team and individual games [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders, rugby and tennis]
  • develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports [for example, athletics and gymnastics]
  • analyse their performances compared to previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best
  • take part in competitive sports and activities outside school through community links or sports clubs.


Key Skills Support


As part of our coaching package we can also offer Key Skills Support for Key Stages 1&2. Our Key Skills Support package incorporates Numeracy and Literacy within Rugby League sessions to give an alternative and stimulating delivery. The sessions are designed to engage the 3 methods of learning; kinaesthetic, visual and audial. This is achieved through use of visual and audial cues along with physical movements. The programme has been pre tested through our successful delivery of the Tackling Track Safety project in conjunction with Network Rail and PDF Sports.


Our numeracy based support is designed to address the FUNdamentals of Mathematics and aid in:


  • becoming fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately


Our literacy based support is designed to address the FUNdamentals of English and aid in:


  • Reading easily, fluently and with good understanding
  • Acquiring a wide vocabulary, an understanding of grammar and knowledge of linguistic conventions for reading, writing and spoken language
  • Using discussion in order to learn; they should be able to elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas
  • Being competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations, demonstrating to others and participating in debate.
