Welcome to episode 207 of The PE Umbrella podcast, the ONLY dedicated Primary PE Podcast in the world!
Joining me Under the Umbrella this week is deputy headteacher and PESSPA director at Clavering Primary School Neil McAvoy. The PESSPA offering at Clavering is simply incredible and a model that, in my opinion, more schools can look to as an example of what is possible when PESSPA is placed at the heart of school culture and ethos. As expected, Neil offered articulate and thought out answers to many topics associated with primary PE, outlining the ways in which his school have harnessed the many positive benefits it brings. I am certain that by listening to this episode, it will give you a plethora of ideas to take away that you can implement or suggest to senior leaders in your schools on the way to making positive change across the PESSPA landscape.
During this episode, we cover a whole host of topics. Questions include but aren’t limited to:
– What currently excites you about primary PE?
-What is your ideal PE lesson recipe?
-What was the worst lesson you ever taught and what did you learn from it?
-Tell us about your Clavering vision statement and the intentions
-How does your offering align with your school culture & ethos?
-Tell us about the clavering [30:30] Physical Activity strategy
Not only that, we discover some top tips for class management and favourite warm-up activities!
So what are you waiting for? Grab your note pad(s) and a pen, then come and join us Under the PE Umbrella.
