The PE Curriculum Support (PECS) programme is an effective, sustainable investment for your PE and Sport Premium. It is more than a mere 1-day training course or standalone activity - instead, it takes a holistic approach to embed PE across your entire school.
Our PECS Program has been developed in partnership with our close friends Aspire Training Solutions and is recognised by the Association for Physical Education (afPE) as a program that assures high-quality learning for teachers.
PECS has a proven record of helping schools drastically improve:
Staff subject knowledge
Primarily a mentoring process, PECS addresses DfE Professional Development Standards, offering regular and ongoing support to empower teachers to raise physical education and activity levels in a way that lasts.
PECS is led by expert mentors and is focused on improving and evaluating pupil outcomes. The programme involves activities designed to sustain and embed practice, including collaborative teacher activity, formative planning and assessment, and expert primary school PE input.
PECS is designed by primary school teachers for primary school teachers. Everything we do is underpinned by robust data and our approach is constantly evolving to meet the demands of the UK's primary schools.
Your teachers are highly skilled experts in the classroom. The PECS programme helps them transfer those skills into the PE environment in a safe, sustainable way. Teachers become more confident in delivering PE to a high standard, improving outcomes for your pupils.
With our help, your teaching staff will get professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively to all pupils.
Let us help you embed physical activity across your school.
