PECS has a proven record of helping schools improve:
Staff subject knowledge
Proven to get results
“PECS has helped both teachers to develop their understanding of the PE curriculum and improved key skills such as breaking down sports and skills to teach the age and abilities of children they have in their class. It also enabled them to be more creative in their approach and improve behaviour management during PE lessons.”
“At first I was a little nervous, however, it soon became clear that I could move at a pace comfortable and useful to me, getting as much or as little support as I needed.I found the lesson plans really easy to follow and adapt and I soon grew in confidence.The lessons progress clearly and the children are engaged and learning safely. The steps for my development were clear, manageable and I feel that I am able to manage the pace of PE lessons better now as a result.”
