The PE Network meetings are for PE Subject Leaders in Primary Schools across the county, designed to share good practice, respond to requests for future professional development and provide free independent advice and updates on national programmes and directives.
Examples of discussions include, effective use of the Sport and PE funding, guidance on the use of coaches in school and further information on regional and national updates.
The start of the 2021 - 2022 academic year has seen the re-introduction of PE Network meetings in several localities following an extended period without, due to Covid-19. These have been a mixture of virtual and face to face meetings to bring together PE leads in each locality to support the delivery of PE and School Sport.
This is all the latest guidance around PE and School Sport collated into one place for ease of access:
Association For PE - Health and Safety Update - Changing Rooms (September 2021)
Government - Physical Activity in Schools (September 2021)
Youth Sport Trust - Covid-19 Return to School Guidance
This session was delivered by the Wright Sport Services team, local coaches with lots of experience of working in schools and the community both before and during the Covid-19 crisis. The recording can be seen below and the chat log can be seen >>here

This session was delivered twice by Lesley Minervini following on from the interest in this subject schools had at the Spring term meetings.
In this session Lesley and the attendees shared a lot of resources PE Subject Leads and schools may find useful, here are links to websites or where you can find more information.
There is a dedicated section of this website for completing the end of year web report for the Primary PE and School Sport Premium >>here
