    I'm trained as a secondary PE teacher and stopped teaching before the 2014 Curriculum was implemented. I'm now back in the classroom - but with smaller kids and am a bit lost as to the expectations for assessment. Can anyone point me in the right direct...and quick!!!! Many thanks, in advance.

    In terms of the expectations? Many Primary schools I've been in don't seem to do much in the way of formally recorded assessment of PE. I guess the questions is who is going to be doing the assessment, and who is the assessment for?

    Yes - that's what I'm concerned about! As a qualified teacher, I've always used assessment to develop the individual and to shape future planning. As a parent - I also want to know how my child is getting on!

    Primary teacher's will still use formative assessment (most of the time) to inform what the children learn and help them move on. It just doesn't tend to be tracked to the nth degree like Maths or English. It's the same story in Computing, and DT, and Art, and....

    Our PE specialist teacher gave us a chart which had objectives to be ticked.
    It was a professionally produced one from a company and when completed the children could apply for certificates level 1 / 2 etc. I'm retired now and can't immediately remember who produced them
