11-19 Project

11-19

Projects in this area will be looking at innovative ways of delivering the new curriculum through PE for 11-19 year olds in secondary schools. This enables secondary teachers to deliver high quality P.E. a new resource 'Making the Most of P.E. has been developed to support this important area.

One secondary head of P.E. says "This is the best resource I have ever used and it has completely changed the way I deliver aspects of my programme."

Through consultation it has been identified that more needs to be done in secondary schools to raise awareness of the wider benefits of PE with head teachers, senior management teams and school improvement teams.

By highlighting the variety of life skills that pupils can develop through PE such as communication, leadership, problem solving and teamworking it is hoped that more importance is given to PE.
