Over 40 PE teachers from across the county came to Greenfield Community College recently to take part in the annual ‘Greenfield PE Teachmeet’ event.

The hugely successful evening was designed for teachers to share their good practice and learn from highly skilled classroom practitioners from across the area. Organiser of the Teachmeet and one of the presenters, Greenfields Subject Leader for PE, Martin Butterworth commented ‘This has been an outstanding display of enthusiastic and passionate teachers sharing excellent practice with one another. The teachers in question had already done a full day’s work before they have come here tonight and this further promotes our commitment to improving the educational opportunities for all the students in our schools. Teachers from many different schools within the county attended the evening giving the event a potential reach of over 17,000 students.’ The event was the second subject specific PE Teachmeet within County Durham and built on the success of Greenfield’s maiden Teachmeet last year.

This event comes on the back of recent high-profile success in the PE department. Last year Greenfield were awarded the Association for Physical Education Quality Mark, which has become the benchmark and industry standard for high quality. This is an achievement only a handful of other departments in the county hold. It also further reinforces OFSTED 2017 where they state ‘there is clear excellence in the teaching of PE’.
