The PE Curriculum Support programme (PECS) is a sustainable and effective way for your school to use your Primary PE and School Sport Premium.
The tailored work based programme uses mentors who help increase the skills, knowledge and confidence of your teachers in the planning, delivery and assessment of physical education.
PECS is the only programme of its kind to be recognised by the Association for Physical Education (AfPE) as a programme that assures high quality learning for teachers!
To help your staff grow both professionally and as individuals, the PECS mentoring process focuses on:
Identifying your teachers individual needs
Observing and mentoring delivery
Setting goals and challenging your staff to move beyond their comfort zone through their own personal folders
Reviewing progress and giving constructive feedback using a variety of teaching methods
Demonstrating and teaching good practice
Employing proven planning and assessment methods
Coaching specific skills
Upon completion of the programme, your staff will be expected to be able to:
Deliver high quality PE lessons
Have a thorough understanding and increased knowledge of the PE curriculum
Set targets, monitor and assess the progress of your pupils in PE
Differentiate lessons to enable pupils to fulfil their potential and make rapid progression
We continuously measure and evaluate the impact that this programme has on your staff. This provides you with valuable evidence to demonstrate your Primary PE and School Sports Premium spend to Ofsted.
