We work with various local and national organisations within Cheshire and Warrington, many of which have offers that aim to enhance and improve your school’s provision. These organisations include:

Primary School Physical Literacy Framework

The framework has been developed by a number of national organisations who we work in partnership to support those working in primary schools to consider how best they can structure their PE and school sport provision. The framework aims to ensure maximum opportunity is provided to develop the physical literacy of all primary schools and their pupils.

The framework can be found below.

Youth Sport Trust (YST)

To help schools maximise their primary school sport premium funding, the Youth Sport Trust (YST) have put together a comprehensive guide on what to consider before making investment decisions. This can be found using the link below.

In addition to this, the YST have also created a separate self-review tool to help you to assess your school’s current provision and outcomes in PE and school sport, and then identify priorities for development. Please see link below titled ‘Youth Sport Trust Self Review Tool’.

Committed to using the power of sport to transform the lives of young people? Then why not join the YST. Benefits include resources, training and programmes – for more information click here

association for Physical Education (afPE)

afPE works with members to ensure that any professional learning meets your individual needs and supports PE professionals in achieving the new professional standards. The Professional Support Unit has a variety of opportunities available all delivered by high quality effective national deliverers.

The documents that can be found here are intended to support primary schools in making judgments about how to use their share of the School Sport Premium. It provides a starting point for debate and discussion to ensure a sustainable strategy for a lasting legacy. It has been jointly developed by afPE and YST for the Department for Education.

The afPE Quality Mark will recognise, through a succinct self review and evaluation process, the strength and quality of physical education and sport in your school. It will raise the profile of the subject and the school both locally and nationally and will promote the high quality work that is being undertaken on a day to day basis. High quality physical education and sport makes a difference to the learning and experiences of children and young people both within the subject and more widely across the curriculum. The afPE Quality Mark will recognise this.

sports coach UK (scUK)

scUK’s PE and school sport resources allow head teachers to access all the information they require to maximise the impact a sports coach can have in their school – from finding a coach and inducting them in your school, through to suggesting additional training.

The new Coaching in Primary Schools Portal has been developed by sports coach UK in collaboration with national partners - the Association for Physical Education, County Sports Partnership Network, Compass, Sport England and the Youth Sport Trust.

Through the Primary PE and Sport Premium, primary schools in England now have additional funding to enhance their PE and school sport offer to children. Many schools have identified a role for sports coaching through this additional funding. Coaches can perform a valuable role in supporting and up-skilling teachers to improve the delivery of physical education in primary schools as well as providing breakfast, lunchtime and after school clubs. Head Teachers and Primary PE Leads are extremely busy, so here is the essential information for all schools:

  • Coaches should only be employed through the Premium funding when a need has been identified by the school’s PE and school sport review
  • Your local County Sports Partnership can help you identify a suitable coach
  • The Portal offers a free self-review tool to ensure your use of coaches is both effective and sustainable
  • Coaches should not be used to displace teachers during curriculum time

scUK also offers a range of workshops ideal for teachers and coaches, including: · Delivering PE lessons. · The FUNdamentals of Movement series · Coaching the Whole Child: Positive Development Through Sport · Positive Behaviour Management in Sport · Safeguarding and Protection Children scUK has also supported some National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) to develop primary school specific training for teachers and coaches. More information on the additional training for teachers and coaches in schools can be found
