Department for Education Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium
“ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.”
ESP Multiskills Zone & CPD will enable schools to show impact against the following 5 key indicators.
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 passionate PE practitioner working in schools, I am delighted to be appointed by ESP as their Head of CPD & Education. 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.
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.
I first started working with ESP Play five years ago when they installed a Multi-skills Zone at my primary school. I instantly recognised the value and the positive impact of the Multi-skills Zone. The support of the Nationally Accredited CPD enabled me as a teacher to utilise the zone within curriculum delivery but also across numerous wider school activities such as play times, sports clubs, games and skill development. In addition, our Yr6 pupils were trained to deliver as Playground Buddies.
An ESP multiskills zone package inc Level 1 training for staff & Playground Buddies plus easy to run multiskills festival resource will ensure improvement in all 5 key indicators.
PLUS Can be used to demonstrate evidence-based actions around new “healthy schools rating scheme” starting Sept 17 including 30mins daily physical activity as part of the governments Childhood Obesity Strategy – August 2016
Teachers’ knowledge and understanding of fundamental movement skills (FMS) and multi-skills have been enhanced as a result of the ESP training and opportunities to focus on these specific elements during PE lessons.
An effective way for the whole of KS1 & KS2 to take part in team or individual competitions without the transport hassle. Each athlete can complete a competition in under 60 minutes. Use as a Level 1 (intra) competition in your own school then upload results to compete in our virtual Level 2 (inter)competition in our ESP Play schools network. Take part as often as you like to track skill progression
