    PE Coach CPD


    In each school holiday, our PE Coach spends 2 days training with all the other Sports (UK) Coaches.  The training sessions include CPD training, updates on the PE curriculum and sharing good practice with colleagues and management.

    Sports (UK) regularly observe our PE Coach’s lessons to identify strengths and weaknesses to develop in future staff training.  This is also a useful way of providing each school with information of the PE Coach’s progress.
