  • ‘Again PESS leads the way in terms of staff training provision. Fully funded and valuable to the needs of all schools to improve quality of teaching and learning in PE. The resource pack and CD rom is superb.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed the PESS dance course. Good balance of practical and theory. Scheme shows how children can develop their skills in a creative way. I can enthusiastically incorporate the scheme into year 3 class.

  • Standards in PE have improved in almost all schools that have been involved with the initiative for some time. Standards are improving very quickly in the primary schools in the newer development centres.

  • Pupils are also developing their key skills better because teachers plan learning activities that encourage them to be independent learners, to adopt roles as leaders and analyse and evaluate the quality of their own work and that of others. Pupils are also acquiring a much greater awareness of personal health and well being and of the importance of regular physical activity.
