PPA Cover

Our experienced and highly-qualified team provide quality, cost-effective and tailor-made PPA cover to local schools in the form of PE lessons. They ensure children have at least one hour of quality physical education a week. We provide every aspect of the PE curriculum through activities such as outdoor adventure, net-wall, striking and fielding, invasion games, gymnastics, athletics and dance. We also provide classroom lessons in the form of music, PSHE and other subjects as required.

Our team plan exciting, engaging and safe lessons aligned to the National Curriculum. They also support teachers with their final end-of-year reports by providing child assessments at the end of every subject area taught.
