PE Consultancy and Training

We are delighted to have Steve Busby (Bed Hons Human Movement and NPQH) working as a PE consultant for the PE and Sports Hub. Steve’s work is energetic and innovative as he seeks to support schools in providing children with the skills for them to become genuinely physically literate with skills of creativity, anticipation, resilience, decision making and teamwork to support their physical abilities.

With 13 years of experience as a Primary Head teacher and a degree in Human Movement Steve understands the enormous benefits an outstanding  PE curriculum can bring to children’s health and well-being; their self-esteem and confidence and the extra energy and vitality it brings to their academic work. Steve passionately believes that in successful schools PE plays an integral role in whole school development and has a high profile.
Steve has a passion for helping colleagues develop outstanding practice in their curriculum and assessment and for maximising opportunities for children to participate and compete in school sport. He also believes in a curriculum that provides opportunities for children to lead, to inspire and to reflect.

Steve ‘s experience of leading PE in both the primary and secondary sector allied to his years of experience as Head teacher of two primary schools means that he has  a thorough understanding of what outstanding PE looks like. He has recent experience of an HMI inspection looking specifically at Sports Premium funding

Level 5 and 6 Certificate in Primary School Physical Education and Subject Leadership

The Level 5 Certificate in Primary School Physical Education Specialism is a recognised qualification that aims to upskill primary school teachers, higher level teaching assistants and teaching assistants with extensive experience (experience across year groups and pupil groups) to improve the overall delivery of the physical education curriculum within primary schools. On successful completion of this qualification, delegates will be able to assist in raising the standards within primary school physical education teaching.

The qualification teaches delegates how to understand the requirements of the primary school physical education curriculum, the links between the principles of pedagogy and child development and how using a range of activities can impact on ‘good or better’ teaching and learning within primary school physical education.

Delegates will also learn how to develop plans for units of work that cover the primary school physical education curriculum and that use assessment to impact on learning and progress. Delegates will deliver, teach, evaluate and review the plans for units of work and will learn how to use the outcomes of the unit of work to inform future planning.
