Why uSports?

 

PPA is a valuable time of any teacher's week.

Keep your class in safe hands with one of our experienced sports coaches.

With the ever growing pressure on teachers we all know how valuable the planning, preparation and assessment time can be in a primary school.

Some schools struggle to find a reliable, cost effective solution to their PPA cover but that's why we only work with committed, experienced and enthusiastic coaches that have a passion to deliver quality PPA cover.

Our sports educators are confident managing full classes whilst possessing the skills and qualifications required by your local authority. Educators will work with your children at the heart of the session whilst managing challenging behaviour effectively.

The above are examples of how we can run Active Maths sessions for your school but we are more than happy to to tailor and adapt to suit the needs of your school.

Results after a 6 week programme

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Teachers are able to rate themselves against a number of different attributes involved in the delivery of PE lessons. An opportunity for honest self judgement to get the most out of the programme.

Creation of a Personalised Development Plan

Mentors will use the initial self review and will liaise with the teacher to determine what will be focused on during the 12 week programme. Mentors will plan focused lessons which will allow both the teacher and class to develop.

Teachers Observe Mentor Delivered Sessions

This provides an opportunity for mentors to observe how to deliver effective sports sessions. Mentors will interact with teachers throughout to explain their thought processes and any decisions made.

Teachers Build Up Delivery of Sessions

Beginning with warm-ups, teachers will put into practice the skills observed and discussed with their mentor. Mentors will feedback at the end of each session and will provide guidance as to how to make progress. Teachers will ultimately progress to delivering full sessions.

Final Self Review

Initial Teacher Self Review

Teachers will again complete a self review to assess their ability to deliver PE sessions, reflecting on the progress made over the 12 week programme. The mentor will create a final reflection of the teacher's progress which can be used to evidence professional development via a graph.

WHY CHOOSE uSPORTS?

It is becoming an all too common story in our news headlines that children are not active enough. With over a third of children in England classed as overweight by the time they leave school it is important that we are embedding a culture within our schools to get young people active. The number of children meeting the recommended amount of physical activity for healthy development and to maintain a healthy weight, which is 60 minutes a day, drops by 40% as they move through primary school.

uSports work with schools to improve the quality of PE, School Sports and Physical Activity for their pupils. Our coaches work closely with schools delivering tailored programmes of work to suit your school. uSports are confident that we can help your school use your PE and School Sport Premium effectively to help you set, work towards and reach your targets.

We have a proven record of working effectively with local schools ​to maximise sport in each individual setting, through the PE and Sport Premium Funding and through wider provisions.

With our CPD Programme we are able to upskill teachers to build confidence across their PE lessons. Whether it is helping your teachers with planning, session delivery or subject knowledge, our mentors will implement strategies to improve the quality of PE within your school. With our programme creating a sustainable impact within your school it is an effective use of your premium.
