Active Cumbria PE Network (ACPEN)

The ACPEN network hub 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. 

The ACPEN meetings have proved very popular with primary school PE subject leaders with over 80 representatives attended the five locality meetings across Cumbria.

"I just wanted to contact you to mention how successful we feel our first two Carlisle Active Cumbria PE Network meetings have been. We have been well attended and hope to continue to grow. We all feel very positive about the future of the meetings and how they will help us to share best practise, stay up-to-date with national changes and initiatives and improve the well-being of the children in our schools through enhancing our teaching and learning." 

Stephen Johnston (Houghton CE)
