A look at health and safety in a PE class Broom Leys Primary School in Coalville, Leicestershire shows how a primary school can maintain high standards in keeping its pupils safe.
Jennette Lathbury, an NQT, receives advice on gymnastics from a specialist coach, boosting her confidence and competence in teaching gymnastics. Her training is part of a scheme to promote gymnastics teaching throughout the NW Leicestershire School Sport Partnership. The scheme is already paying dividends, and has resulted in an inter-schools beginners’ gymnastics competition.
Broom Leys has improved the competence and confidence of staff by using other sources of expertise within and outside the school, as well as undertaking risk assessments and ensuring pupils pay attention to their own safety.
