“British Gymnastics is delighted to have been asked to contribute to the three summer courses for this, the most significant initiative within primary education. In some respects, it is time to stop the debates surrounding early years and primary physical education and start to do something real and tangible. Given time, this initiative will do exactly that by training up specialist teachers with a passion for physical education, well-being, health and sport. At its basic level, our offer to trainees is based on the notion of physical literacy, that is, the way we move. This, coupled with interpreting the national curriculum in a real sense, gives trainees and teachers the confidence to deliver high quality physical education. Throughout August we have met some amazing trainee teachers who get the need to engage positively in a fun and inspiring way with their pupils. The actual content of the lessons themselves means nothing unless it is delivered with enthusiasm and wide, happy eyes. We see this initiative as a real investment in contributing to the development of a strong and sustainable solution to the general lack of physical activity across the primary sector.” British Gymnastics

Highlights Staffing – Director of Sport / SGO Working with NGBs and national leaders in sport have helped to raise the profile of the course. The trainees worked with facilitators who are practising teachers and leaders within their school many of whom are SLEs or aspiring towards that role. The trainees have been placed within schools who are strong partner schools from our School Sport Partnership network which has galvanized the partnership with our local schools. The trainees have benefited from a strong team of staff within the teaching school at Ashton on Mersey who pride themselves on the quality of provision and opportunities afforded to the cohort.
