The PE Umbrella

Providing development & training in Primary Physical Education for Schools, Universities and SCITT providers

Our Journey

Ryan Ellis is a qualified Primary School teacher with 10 years of teaching experience that has spanned classroom teaching and PE consulting roles.

As somebody truly passionate about ALL pupils receiving high-quality Primary PE, Ryan launched The PE Umbrella Podcast in 2015 as a means to provide accessible CPD for teachers in a subject area often not given the time it deserves in ITT.

Today, The PE Umbrella provides training, resources and a podcast with the aim of developing the confidence and competence of the workforce to deliver the PE national curriculum while nurturing wider life skills.

The notion of developing the whole child is the golden thread that runs through everything we stand for at The PE Umbrella.

Our aim is to develop the PE Umbrella of every child so that they can tackle everything that life will throw their way.
