Staffing of the programme
All teaching within school is delivered by Level 3 Association for Physical Education (afPE) qualified PE educators, who also hold National Governing Body (NGB) Level 2 coaching qualifications, which is an Ofsted recommendation.
Lesson plans are divided into specific year groups, which can be used by teachers to assist with the PE curriculum and enrichment planning.
Schemes of work for all programme elements in the KS1 & KS2 PE national curriculum are provided on a teacher lesson plan support portal, of which schools are given a unique username and password. The portal can be found here.
