Merton's commitment to quality underpins every element of our partnership and we're proud of our strong reputation and excellent track record in delivering the highest quality PE and sports activities.
All our coaches possess a minimum UKCC Level 2 coaching certificate in at least one sport. They will have completed or will be working towards a Level 3 certificate in Supporting the Delivery of Physical Education and School Sport. All have experience working within primary schools delivering PE.
High quality lessons
Over 87 units of work have been developed for coaches to use as a resource (we want our learners to experience a progressive and broad curriculum). An assessment framework has also been developed so pupils are tracked through each area of PE.
Each coach is observed at least once a term and provided with feedback that will support their continued professional development. Training days are also provided with the option to attend our teacher training workshops. We pride ourselves in our high-quality delivery so any new coaches will shadow and work alongside our experienced coaches until we feel they are ready to lead their own sessions.
All staff involved with Merton Inspire & Educate PE, whether in paid or a voluntary capacity, recognise that they have a duty of care towards children and young people as well as vulnerable adults. Each coach has an enhanced DBS check and will have a safeguarding/child protection and first aid qualification. All PE specialists will adopt the Merton Inspire & Educate PE Code of Conduct and also follow Harris Academy Morden’s safeguarding policy. PE specialists will possess their own public liability insurance and/or be covered by Harris Academy Morden.
