    I think many teachers in my school are aware that PE is able to support children’s holistic development. However many of the teachers find it difficult to plan for this holistic development. The physical part is in the centre of their mind as that is what their own experiences of PE are. I think at the moment there is good awareness in my school that a whole range of skills and values can be developed during PE lessons. However there is still confusion understanding the differences between PE, School Sport and PA, and the outcomes they achieve.

    <font face=”inherit”>I’m trying to move staff away from the traditional curriculum of delivering a different sport each term, in favour of more ‘open’ topics e.g. travel & navigate, invaders, etc. Which I believe can make planning of holistic development a bit simpler and more direct. </font>
