Welcome to episode 197 of The PE Umbrella Podcast!
Joining me Under the umbrella this week is inspirational headteacher of The Academy at St James, Chris Tolson.
Having recently heard about the simply wonderful provision at his school through Niall O'Brien, this week we take the plunge and gain a headteachers perspective on the trajectory of his school and the decisions behind it.
Amongst our discussion we talk about:
- What is the importance of a great PA provision in your school & how does this impact pupil wellbeing?
- How has your school shifted its approach? What changes had to be made? What pushback did you have?
- How has your provision assisted in supporting your school during the pandemic?
- Advice for budding PE leads listening who may want to go on a similar journey
So what are you waiting for? Jump under the umbrella with us and join in the conversation by tweeting me @thepeumbrella. Note pad(s) ready!
