Are your teaching staff providing high quality delivery of Physical Education to every child at your school?

The National Curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:

• Are physically active for sustained periods of time
• Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
• Engage in competitive sports and activities
• Lead healthy, active lives 

Sport Specific Teacher Training

Our teaching support programme is an effective and sustainable way for schools to empower their staff and provide ongoing Continued Professional Development (CPD). We provide schools with highly qualified practitioners, who work alongside school staff to mentor and improve their knowledge and confidence in a range of sports and physical activities. 

Teaching staff will: 

  • Learn how to structure a PE lesson, 
  • Have access to practical lesson planning, 
  • Develop appropriate modifications to challenge children of different abilities, 
  • Improve & manage behaviour out of the classroom, 
  • Find effective ways to keep children physically active for sustained periods,
  • Discover how to include competition in PE (without the tears!)

Maple Infants School, Surbiton

Maple Infants is a two-form entry school in Surbiton, South West London. The school leadership aims to maximise the impact of the PE Premium grant for the long-term benefits of the children. They want to achieve sustainable improvement in the quality and provision of PE, physical activity and sport.

The PE leadership identified an immediate need to increase the confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in the teaching of PE.  Using the PE Premium fund, Maple Infants have contracted PLL Education to provide weekly, targeted, quality assured training for the PE Lead, class teachers and teaching assistants meaning that all staff are offered specific training based on their individual needs. This has had a positive impact on the quality and appropriateness of the schools PE curriculum. 

Our level 5 specialist is deployed within the school two mornings per week and helps the teachers to develop confidence and competence by modelling good practice and acting as a mentor. Teachers now regularly report children making excellent progress in their PE lessons. Pupils participate enthusiastically and behave appropriately. The PE curriculum is broad, balanced, progressive and integrated with the wider school curriculum.
