In February 2006, John Hellins Primary School near Towcester achieved an outstanding rating by Ofsted following a PE subject inspection.
In this programme, Ofsted inspector Howard Todd returns to the school to explain what it was about John Hellins that impressed him so much.
PE co-ordinator David Tebbutt is observed teaching gymnastics. The objectives of the lesson are clearly set out and David shows how he applies in-depth professional knowledge to his teaching.
Swimming lessons are of an equally high quality, with the class differentiated into four ability groups.
Outside the curriculum, the school has a broad range of playtime and after-hours activities, ensuring that the government's 2-plus-2-hour target is easily met.
Finally, there is an effective professional development programme to support teachers in activities such as dance.
