The PE Curriculum Support programme (PECS) is a sustainable and effective way for your school to use your Primary PE and School Sport Premium

The tailored work based programme uses mentors who help increase the skills, knowledge and confidence of your teachers in the planning, delivery and assessment of physical education.

PECS is the only programme of its kind to be recognised by the Association for Physical Education (AfPE) as a programme that assures high quality learning for teachers!

Mentoring Process

To help your staff grow both professionally and as individuals, the PECS mentoring process focuses on:

  • Identifying your teachers individual needs

  • Observing and mentoring delivery

  • Setting goals and challenging your staff to move beyond their comfort zone through their own personal folders

  • Reviewing progress and giving constructive feedback using a variety of teaching methods

  • Demonstrating and teaching good practice

  • Employing proven planning and assessment methods

  • Coaching specific skills


Upon completion of the programme, your staff will be expected to be able to:

  • Deliver high ­quality PE lessons

  • Have a thorough understanding and increased knowledge of the PE curriculum

  • Set targets, monitor and assess the progress of your pupils in PE

  • Differentiate lessons to enable pupils to fulfil their potential and make rapid progression
