Boost Confidence & Subject Knowledge with

Quality Teaching

We believe primary school teachers are crucial in inspiring children to move more. However, there is little focus on PE in teaching training, so many teachers feel under prepared.
Our Professional Development service has been carefully constructed to support teachers on their PE learning journey.

We currently provide this service to 15 schools across the following London boroughs:

  • ¬†Lambeth
  • Southwark
  • Croydon
  • Lewisham
  • Wandsworth
  • Bromley
  • Westminster

We have the capabilities to expand to other boroughs, so if interested, feel free to reach out.

Why Schools Across London Trust Us

– Our Goal –

Developing Excellence

Over the course of a half-term or more (subject to the needs of the individual teacher) our Primary PE Specialists will model good practice and provide helpful written and verbal feedback. We’ll also team-teach, observe, assess, plan, and prepare with your staff. This will develop excellent subject knowledge, not to mention confidence and an awareness of outstanding practice.

What’s more, our support comes with access to all Moving Matters schemes of work and a range of supporting documents which will help improve your staff’s ability to teach good or outstanding PE lessons.
