Our "Outstanding" Team & Services!
With the confirmation that the Department for Education (DfE) has confirmed that the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding will continue at £320 million for the 2020/21 academic year we would like to tell you about the extensive and professional range of services we offer.
The latest government guidance discusses Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of their physical education.
The premium should be used to
- develop or add to the physical activity that your school provides
- build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport by
providing staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively to all pupils &
hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities.
Whether you are looking for PPA cover or a demonstrative model of high quality PE, PEAK can help you. Our PE Educators are trained to a minimum of L3 in Primary Physical Education. You will receive high quality PE and OSHL delivery for your children. Our PEAK Educators will deliver either your school PE curriculum or, should you choose, our own unique skills based curriculum that fully meets the requirements of the PE National Curriculum. Where you choose our curriculum we will begin with a series of age appropriate baseline tests to ensure that the teaching is personalised to the individual needs of the pupils. We will repeat these tests twice throughout the year to demonstrate and measure progress. "We have been really impressed with our Educator from PEAK, her planning and delivery of P.E. lessons and an after school club are exceptional. She is very professional and hard working deliverer. She assess the children and makes sure that her lessons match the needs of the children, rising to the challenge of teaching mixed age classes with enthusiasm. She is adaptable and approachable and has fitted in well with our team. The staff have all enjoyed working with her. PEAK ensure that she is supported throughout the year and check regularly with school to make sure that we are happy with the quality of education provided. I would definitely recommend PEAK and I look forward to working with them next year." - Katie Haycock, Headteacher Wolviston Primary School
The acronym PECS stands for Physical Education Curriculum Support. In a nutshell, it is a programme of mentoring for primary school teachers that enhances their knowledge and confidence in teaching PE. Feedback has shown clear benefits to using PECS for teachers' professional development:
Confidence - teachers improve their confidence in their own ability to deliver effective PE lessons to their pupils.
Subject knowledge - teachers learn more about PE and gain a robust knowledge that helps them to deliver higher quality lessons for their pupils.
Tracking and reporting - teachers learn how to track the progress of pupils more effectively, and produce accurate, constructive reports for individuals.
Planning - through improved subject knowledge and greater ability to track and monitor progress, teachers are able to develop superior lesson plans for PE.
"Very supportive with excellent opportunities to observe good practice and strategies. My mentor has provided lots of ideas to keep all children active and engaged during a lesson and ideas how to progress the skills during a session. Great tips for where to position myself during active time so that I am aware of where all children are and how they are achieving."
Sarah Hall, St Albans RC Primary.
Or perhaps a PEAK Apprentice is what your school needs? A low cost means to develop more physical activity for your pupils Having and apprentice on site for a year will help you achieve many of the key indicators for the PESS spend:
The apprentice will be able to go straight away into the playground and break and dinner times to arrange organised active play for your pupils to help you achieve the target set by the Chief Medical Officer of children being active for at least 30 minutes every day whilst at school;
The apprentice is more than likely to have a sporting background and will have ideas to help develop your teaching team's confidence, knowledge and skills in teaching PE and sport;
Having an additional member of staff will help you manage to staff opportunities for children to increase their participation in competitive sport.
