Why schools are choosing to use Caboodle Coaching during the Covid 19 lockdown?

Enforcing social distancing and keeping pupils safe during P.E lessons is not always an easy task.


Teaching PE with social distancing

 

As a way of supporting teachers during the pandemic, Caboodle Coaching has been providing its services completely FREE to every primary school across England and Scotland. We are proud to have helped so many schools so far during the crisis, who have given great feedback in response.

With lockdown in full force, schools are trying their best to enforce social distancing and with sports coaches furloughed across the country, it has become a real challenge for teachers to plan for and teach P.E.

 

Why schools are choosing to use Caboodle Coaching during the Covid 19 lockdown?

Enforcing social distancing and keeping pupils safe during P.E lessons is not always an easy task. With many PE lessons, hand apparatus is often used between several pupils, children move in and around each other’s personal space and close contact is difficult to avoid.

Teachers are praising Caboodle Coaching’s gymnastics lessons for how easy they are to adapt to meet social distancing guidelines, meaning pupils can keep their distance throughout an entire lesson without missing out on important content. Most physical content in the KS2 gymnastics scheme of work is designed around individual activities making the format of the lessons ideal for social distancing.

As the country heads into the summer term and most schools begin to tentatively re-open their doors to more pupils, Caboodle Coaching’s online video lessons can continue to be a valuable asset for assisting teachers with socially distanced P.E lessons.

We hope that Caboodle Coaching’s free support for schools during this time will mean that pupils won’t have to miss out on high quality P.E lessons. Teachers can feel empowered to deliver safe gymnastics lessons to their pupils, without the need for hiring in external sports coaches.

If you or your school would like to gain free access to our gymnastics scheme of work and all video lessons. Please email Hello@caboodlecoaching.com and ask about our COVID-19 schools support
