					Dear Colleagues

It is incredible - another year over and now planning for an exciting year ahead. As we begin another year of progress and development, we work
towards achieving 2 hours HQ PE in the curriculum for all children and young people in all our schools. There are two challenges here – first
achieving the 2 hours within the curriculum but also ensuring that what is delivered is of high quality. The delivery of high quality PE requires
teachers to be knowledgeable and confident with the delivery of the subject content.

Last year our CPD programme provided over 1250 staff engagements for a wide range of opportunities. As your Local delivery Agency (LDA) we
continue to work strategically with a range of partners to provide an effective and needs based CPD programme for all staff across our county.
Whatever level of CPD support you require, I ask that you plan carefully, in advance, and ensure you make appropriate opportunities available to
your staff. As a subject leader a key part of your role is to ensure that you identify and address the CPD needs of your staff, and relate these to the
needs of the children and young people in your school on an annual basis. You are all aware that attendance at ‘courses’ is not the only way to
meet the CPD needs of your staff and I hope that you will seek the most appropriate and innovative CPD opportunities available. This booklet
should provide you with considerable information to help you plan effectively.

As the newly revised Secondary curriculum develops into year 8 and the new primary curriculum is being finalised it is important that schools and
departments keep abreast of developments. With this in mind we invite secondary staff to attend a Head of Department’s briefing in September and
urge all Primary Link Teachers (PLTs) to attend a briefing on the key role of physical education within the new primary curriculum in March. The
successful joint PLT conferences will provide further relevant CPD opportunities for primary staff.

In the coming year we have identified main focus areas around inclusion and safe practice. You should all have received your copy of Safe Practice
in PE (AfPE). This document has been completely updated and published on behalf of the Association for Physical Education (afPE). The
information contained within the new publication is recognised nationally as best practice for physical education and represents the standard text for
PE risk assessments. I hope this document and accompanying half day workshop, in October, will be used effectively to support the delivery of an
exciting, challenging and safe curriculum.

Our focus on inclusion leads us to consider two aspects – supporting and challenging Autistic and talented pupils in PE. To address these identified
areas, we are providing several excellent opportunities for staff to attend related CPD events. Please refer to the booklet for further details.
The Service Level Agreement (SLA) will again provide individual support packages for schools that choose to buy into the offer. Please contact
Andy Brown or refer to our website for further details

Best wishes for the year ahead
Alan Wallis
Adviser (Health and wellbeing)

 With an increasing number of Teaching Assistants and Higher Level Teaching assistants being asked to provide “support” for individual pupils , small groups and teaching and
learning in Physical Education, there is a growing need for a programme of PESS specific CPD to enable and assist these key members of the school workforce .The course is
developed around the HLTA professional standards and is ideally suited to those wishing to extend or enhance their current practice by developing a specialism in PE. This
modular programme has been a huge success, receiving excellent reviews from previous participants and generating interest from neighbouring Local Authorities

Schools / members of staff wishing to enquire about this certificated modular course should contact Julie Chisholm or Kathleen Marshall at the school workforce
development team To register for the modules please contact: Jacqui Pearson Senior Administrative Officer, Learning and Development 0-19 Service

The proposed programme will consist of 5 modules each delivered in local venues. Each Module (1 day) includes practical elements /activities .These will be non threatening &
delegates will be expected to wear appropriate clothing & participate in the practical activities.. Delegates completing all modules will receive a course completion certificate and
CPD file containing high quality advice and resources.
