PL Primary Stars delivers teacher CPD course
Local teachers have this week been working with our Premier League Primary Stars Coordinators at a CPD course designed to support them in their PE delivery.
Held at the Liberty Stadium, local teachers took part in a mix of theoretical and practical sessions aimed at giving them more confidence when teaching their own PE lessons, as well as helping them in the planning and delivery of these lessons.
The CPD training shows that it’s not just the pupils at the schools we engage with that benefit, it’s the teachers too.
Providing schools with resources created by industry experts – including the National Literacy Trust – Premier League Primary Stars also aims to also support teachers in addition to primary pupils across the UK. Giving teachers access to a downloadable suite of resources across Key Stages 1 and 2 in English, Maths, PE and PSHE, the programme will aid them in the delivery of their lessons both in and out of the classroom.
Thomas Williams, the Community Trust’s Education Manager, said, “It was great for us to meet with a number of local teachers.
“Everyone involved was passionate about the benefits of high quality PE; it was great for us to work together to hopefully improve the quality of PE in Primary Schools and create a more positive PE experience of all pupils.
“We hope by hosting these types of events we can continue to support teachers through sharing our practices and experiences and hopefully increase their confidence and knowledge in PE. This will be the lasting legacy of the Primary Stars programme, so when we are no longer delivering in the school pupils continue to receive high quality PE”
The CPD session comes towards the end of a successful first season for our PL Primary Stars project that has witnessed Pontybrenin Primary change their name to the Leon Britton School for the day in celebration of the project’s launch, as well as a host of other visits by first team players to local schools.
