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 the new PE national curriculum.
Due to Covid-19, the Summer term 2020 meetings were virtual, recordings and resources related to these meetings can be found below.
We are just planning what our support offer to primary and secondary schools and we would be really keen to hear what areas we can help you with through networking opportunities / continuous professional development or any other ideas you may have. Please coud you take 5 minutes to complete our survey, particularly if you have watched one of the PE Network recordings below.
