Welcome to episode 121 of The PE Umbrella podcast and another absolute belter of an episode!
This week, I welcomed Victoria Randall to the show, a key figurehead behind the writing and then publishing of the report into the Primary PE and Sport Premium, that sought to unpick how effective it truly has been! This episode dives deep into many of the findings from the report and we discuss some key recommendations that have been subsequently put forward.
- Teacher training
- Use of coaches
- Teacher workload
- Getting core status
- What is a 'specialist' and is this dangerous?
As the interview progresses, many interesting points are raised, and as a classroom teacher myself, one who empathises with teacher workload and how schools view PE, I was keen to throw my opinions into the hat. Even more so than other episodes, I'd like this to spark off some professional dialogue over social media, so please get in touch @ryansporting to let me know your thoughts on any of the topics raised in this episode!
What are you waiting for? I'll see you Under the Umbrella!
