PE, School Sport & Movement Workshops - Secondary Schools

During the week of the 23rd May, The Youth Sport Trust will be delivering 3 workshops for Secondary schools across Lancashire to access. The 3 workshops will be free of charge and will focus on the importance of physical activity to develop the physical and mental wellbeing of pupils. Places are limited so we encourage schools to only register 1 place, per school.

The workshops form part of our week's worth of training, and CPD for schools across Lancashire, as on the 24th May we will be running a conference for Primary schools. The keynote speaker at this conference will be Andy Daly Smith (University of Bradford) who will talk about whole school improvement through physical activity and the Creating active schools (CAS) framework. This will be of interest for all schools and we will live stream this on the 23rd May, at 9.30am. We will put the link on this page, on the day. You can learn more about the Primary conference here.

See information on each of the secondary workshops below and follow the links to sign up.

Monday 23rd May, 16:00-16:40: Physical Education, Transformed

Join Gareth Jones, Head of PE at Calderstones High Schools in Liverpool, to hear how the curriculum intent has been transformed to ensure ALL students find enjoyment of physical activity as a definitive aim, developing the whole child both mentally and physically. By providing students with the knowledge and understanding to stay fit and healthy into adulthood and making key life skills explicit in lessons, this has become the main focus over the last 2 years and not just upskilling technique in individual sports. Students are given the freedom to experience a variety of activities by using spaces rather than rigid sports. This utilises staff expertise in providing a broad and balanced curriculum. PE now plays a pivotal role, whole school, on such things as wellbeing & achievement.

Join Anthony Judge, Development Manager at the Youth Sport Trust, to explore how a Well School places just as much emphasis on wellbeing as it does on academic performance. It understands that children and young people are more effective learners when they are happy and well and that they must take care of their staff and their pupils wellbeing to create a culture that allows everyone to reach their potential. Well Schools is a growing community of like-minded professionals and stakeholders who believe that wellbeing should be at the heart of education. Find out more and how to connect, completely free, with colleagues across the UK to share resources and support each other and celebrate the impact of your Well School.
