The Pleiades Leisure CPD programme is an effective and sustainable way for schools to use their PE and School Sports Premium.
We provide schools with highly qualified mentors who help improve PE teaching by giving staff the skills needed to deliver high quality PE lessons.
Each CPD programme is tailored to meet specific needs of a school; for example improving teacher knowledge and confidence in PE or increasing engagement levels of pupils.
Objective: Maple Infants’ leadership team wanted a whole school approach to improving their teachers PE delivery.
Solution: Pleiades Leisure presented a 38 week plan; delivering sessions, observing staff, offering support and planning every step of the way.
- Maple appreciated having access to planning to support their teaching.
- Teachers felt their practice benefitted from seeing Pleiades Leisure conduct sessions/certain skills or activities first before picking it up themselves in subsequent weeks’ teaching
- They felt that Pleiades Leisure always adapted their practice for both the higher and lower ability children within each class - and again teachers have been able to take this on board for their own future practice.
- Teachers have also felt the benefit of always having a Pleiades session on a Monday - it's a structure that works for everyone's timetables and is also consistent for the children.
