School Sport Premium

The CPD training that ESP delivers is a fantastic way to upskill staff

School Sports Premium

High quality daily physical activity provides endless benefits for children and young people’s physical health and mental wellbeing. Research proves daily physical activity increases self-esteem, improves emotional wellbeing, and lowers anxiety and depression. Children who are physically active are happier, more resilient, and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement. ESP provides excellent training through our CPD workshops.

Department for Education Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium

“It is important for ALL pupils leaving primary school to be physically literate and to have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.” – Andrew Wood, Managing Director.

The CPD training that ESP delivers is a fantastic way to up-skill staff as well as being an effective sustainable way of using the Sports Premium funding.

“As a specialist PE practitioner, I have been helping primary schools raise standards of PE for the last 16 years. I have worked with School Sport Partnerships in the North West of England delivering competitions, improving levels of participation and inclusion. The opportunity to lead on the national delivery of high-quality CPD presents a real challenge that I could not turn down. I look forward to supporting schools and their staff in providing strategies to increase sustained participation in high-quality physical activity for every child.– Head of CPD, ESP Play
