Teaching and Leading Primary Physical Education
The IPPEA are delighted to offer our exciting EPV approved Summer Course in Physical Education in two locations this year.
They will provide opportunities for teachers to enhance their knowledge, skills and confidence in teaching all strands of the PE curriculum. Practical activities and familiarisation with key resources, applicable to all class levels will be presented relating to Athletics, Gymnastics, Dance, Games and Outdoor and Adventure.
Examples of how pupil learning can be promoted in the affective (teamwork, fair play), cognitive (understanding of concepts) and psychomotor (development and mastery of fundamental movement skills) domain will be evident in the workshops. Recent developments and research in primary PE will be explored practically through innovative curriculum models such as sport education and teaching games for understanding.
The course will provide opportunities for you to develop your understanding of leadership in primary PE. You will consider how you can contribute to quality PE provision across the wider school. The course may be of particular interest to those involved in whole school initiatives, such as the Active School Flag and Health Promoting Schools.

Subject: Erasmus+ DIPPE Online Questionnaire
Dear Primary Teacher of Physical Education,
Disentangling Inclusion in Primary Physical Education (DIPPE) is an Erasmus+ Project which aims to create an online toolkit for primary school teachers and primary student teachers to access information about inclusion and inclusive practice in Physical Education.
The project partners which include the IPPEA have prepared a questionnaire for teachers who teach Physical Education in primary schools. It will take no longer than 15 minutes to complete. The project focus is on the primary generalist teacher however where Physical Education is not taught by a generalist primary teacher, we are happy that specialists who are teaching Physical Education in primary schools complete the questionnaire.
We would be delighted if you would complete the questionnaire to help us develop the toolkit which will provide information about teaching strategies and resources to support the inclusion of all children in Physical Education lessons. The online questionnaire will shut down 30th April 2019. Here is the hyperlink to complete the questionnaire https://unilu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_08QZDjMbHe1LWfz
We thank you for this valuable support to inform the project. Follow the DIPPE project work at:
