real PE Course (3 day)

The SSP is excited to be able to provide schools within Norwich with the opportunity to attend real PE training.

real PE has been described as a game changer, it will change the way you, your pupils and staff will all view PE. real PE focuses teaching on what matters – every individual child. It uses a framework of outstanding resources and lesson plans.  All of this is underpinned by a focus around the progressive development of Fundamental Movement skills and a Multi-Ability approach to developing the whole child.

School Based CPD Sessions

Most workshops will be twilight sessions (4.00-6.00pm) to avoid schools having to pay for supply cover to enable staff to attend. These courses will be open to any member of school staff that is involved in delivering curriculum PE lessons or extra curricular school sport inc teachers, teaching assistants, midday supervisors, parents. Schools will be able to send as many people on each workshop as they want. The aim of these short twilight workshops will be to provide school staff with the opportunity to build their confidence and skills delivering a range of sports to pupils within Yr R-6.

All staff training workshops will be designed to also compliment our SSP competition calendar as well as benefitting the delivery of curriculum PE. Workshops linking into competitions will be arranged approximately 4-8 weeks prior to competitions so staff can attend the workshop then return to their school and prepare pupils for the competition.

All workshops will be lead by expert tutors and will provide school staff with the opportunity to try a range of sport specific activities and drills which they could use within their schools. Delegates on most workshops will also be given a FREE resource that they can take away with them and use straight away within their school.

Cost = Free for SSP member schools

Whole School INSET

Each member school will be entitled to 2 twilight sessions per academic year to be delivered on the school site by staff provided by the SSP. These sessions can also be delivered to clusters of schools. The SSP will access appropriate staff to deliver the area requested by the member school, these can be sport specific to enable the introduction of a new sport throughout the school or they can be more curriculum based depending on the school needs. For example practical ideas for:

  1. Supporting individual physical needs of pupils
  2. Foundation stage

  4. Delivering PE within restrictions of space, equipment, time
