Bristol real PE Hub
We are excited to announce that the Bristol Primary Teaching School has been successful in winning a DfE national bid to support the improvement of PE and gymnastics teaching in the city. In partnership with Create Development, we are one of only nine DfE funded PE hubs across the country in a pilot programme, testing models of delivery in the year ahead.
Our bid looks in detail at upskilling whole staff with PE and gymnastics teaching – and includes full schemes of work and lesson plans based on the highly regarded real PE and real gym programmes which many schools have adopted over the last few years in the city. The bid also supports children and families to increase activity levels beyond their lessons at school. We aim to work closely with a PE lead in each school, to deliver high quality training and to support them to drive change whilst ensuring sports premium funding is used effectively and shows good value for money.
Schools will receive (all free of charge):
- 3 days of subject leader training – to upskill your PE lead and to support them to implement a new PE and gymnastics curriculum school wide;
- 1 day (or equivalent twilights / staff meetings) of ‘core’ real PE training for all of your staff;
- 1 day (or equivalent twilights / staff meetings) of ‘core’ real gym training for all of your staff;
- Up to 2 days of in school support per school with a lead professional /supporting your staff: answering questions, supporting implementation, demonstrating lessons, mentoring, recapping sessions, observing and reviewing;
- A pupil survey to measure activity levels and engagement;
