The PE Umbrella | Podcasting ALL things Primary Physical Education

Ryan Ellis here, the founder and host of the PE Umbrella, a Primary Physical Education podcast that discusses all things PE. Interviewing inspiring practitioners from the primary education sector, I will be sharing the latest in excellent practice and discussing what makes PE and Sport such an important tool to engage and enhance the learning of children (across the curriculum) so they are ready to leave school with a solid platform to lead a healthy lifestyle and enjoy lifelong physical activity! I will share insights into what makes the top practitioners of today tick, asking about their favourite PE resources, what activities are a must have in the locker for any teacher and success stories about WHAT REALLY WORKS! All in all, the PE Umbrella is about inspiring YOU in YOUR own teaching practice and providing you with the tools, ideas and resources to take ACTION! So come and join me under the PE Umbrella!

Welcome to episode 118 of The PE Umbrella podcast! Joining me Under the Umbrella this week is primary school headteacher Ian Holmes.

During this episode, we talk about how Ian utilises Physical Activity as a driver for his school ethos to make a difference to the physical and mental health of his children. We discuss the barriers he has overcome, how he has spent the PE budget and what plans he has for the school going forward. Ultimately, Ian is a remarkable example of a forward-thinking headteacher who is looking at the bigger picture, and one who has successfully integrated physical activity and quality PE into the lives of the children of his school!

Not only that, but he even takes the time to talk us through his worst ever lesson, top class management tip and favourite warm up!

So what are you waiting for? Come on over and join us Under the PE Umbrella.
