Inspire the next generation...

The athletes will share their journeys in sport and allow children the opportunity to reflect on their own aspirations. The athlete visits will help motivate children to simply take part or strive for their personal best. This world class attitude can be applied into both sport and other areas in school and their personal lives, ensuring every inspirational athlete visit will live long in the memory, many years after Rio...

An ambassador visit includes a personalised video from the athlete to the children, an inspirational ‘Olympic values’ school assembly, Q&A session with the athlete so children will get their chance to fire questions in a press conference format. An ambassador visit also includes an interactive training session delivered by the athlete, classroom visits and an Olympic style awards ceremony.

Healthy Pupil Capital Programme

Schools are to get £415 million from the soft drinks industry levy to help pupils benefit from healthier, more active lifestyles. Primary, secondary and sixth form colleges can use the cash for facilities to support PE, after school activities and healthy eating. The government said facilities will be able to support children with physical conditions, or support young people struggling with mental health issues.

The funding is part of a £1.3 billion investment, which is separate to but sits alongside the newly doubled PE and sport premium, breakfast clubs and universal infant free school meals. The government has also pledged the funding will not fall below £415 million regardless of the cash generated by the levy.

The money is expected to available in the 2018/19 financial year, and schools will be told in the summer how it will be allocated (The Department for Education will confirm the allocation formula, spending guidance and bidding criteria in the summer).

Sally Gunnell OBE Launches New Health & Wellbeing Programme

Children across the UK are missing out on the best possible start in life because their parents don’t have the time, money or knowledge to help them lead a healthier lifestyle, a survey suggests*.

Two thirds of parents polled by leading children’s coaching company Premier Sport say they don’t know enough to educate their children about healthy living, while 37% blame lack of time and 30% cite the cost of healthy food and gym facilities as a barrier.

The survey also found that despite just 16% of children leading the healthiest lifestyle in their household, less than half of parents will be encouraging their children to get fitter over the next 12 months.

Olympic gold medallist, Premier Sport supporter and mother-of-three, Sally Gunnell OBE, is shocked by the figures and says families need more support to get active if future generations are to stay fit and healthy.

“The great thing about Premier Transition is that it removes some of the key barriers we know parents struggle with when it comes to family fitness,” Ms Gunnell said, adding: “Not only do the classes provide parents with low-cost access to fitness facilities at a time when they would to be heading to school anyway, they also give them tips and advice on nutrition so they can help their families get fitter and healthier too.”

Improving pupils health and wellbeing – know your WHY?

There are 3 burning questions surrounding health and wellbeing in schools...

  1. Why is health and wellbeing important?
  2. How are you supporting the health and wellbeing of children in your care as part of your vision, ethos and strategic direction of your school and provide indicators to support this.
  3. What could you be doing to improve?

Yvonne Gandy visits schools and academies across the country, leaders of these schools always discuss what they are doing, but find it difficult to explain, particularly where additional funding has been provided, why they are doing what they are doing. Find out more on why, how and what your school should be doing and start the process of improvement.

Have you heard about our wellbeing programmes?

Premier Transition aims to inspire healthy changes that have a positive impact on the lives of children, parents and the wider community. Their programmes don’t just provide children with the facts; they inspire and develop a ‘whole school approach’ which extends to school caterers, teachers, parents, friends and families.

Premier Transition programmes also support schools in delivering on the health and well-being agenda which over time will lead to better pupil behaviour, attendance and improved academic achievement.

For nurseries it’s Play-Trition - have a look at the video below of one of our Premier Transition licensees, delivering a session in Great Yarmouth.

For KS1 and KS2 it’s Fun-Trition - based around the fundamental principles of staying healthy; eating well, drinking well, moving well and sleeping well.

For your teachers and parents it’s Fit-Trition – offering busy parents and teachers everything from fitness classes when they are already at the class location, to nutritional advice and motivational facts.

Premier ventures into China...

Premier have recently returned from a seven-city tour of Jiangsu province in China, hosted by China’s Ministry of Sport, Education Bureau and Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The tour supports a new partnership between Premier Education Group and schools in China, where Activity Professionals will now deliver to children across the province and share great practice from both countries.

At each school that was visited, Activity Professionals would first watch how a Chinese PE lesson was lead, and would then lead a session themselves. They would also deliver football sessions which are now mandatory in China, with around 50 boys or girls at a time. Following each session, Activity Professionals would share best practice and give advice on how to continue developing the programmes.

More information about our activity in China, along with some interesting insights from David Batch’s blog, ‘Learning from China’

Your opinion counts!

It’s the time of year where we complete our annual quality and impact review of area school provision

We hope you have had great break over half term and have come back to school refreshed and ready for this last part of the academic year.

Premier Education Group’s (PEG) desire to improve is engrained into everything that we do. We strive to improve and develop all our school based PE & school sport programmes, including their management and delivery. This supports high standards and delivering consistent quality outcomes for young people in schools.

We do this through a very thorough and ongoing Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) process. This process has many different elements and is supported by our external advisors. The diagram below explains the process further;

As highlighted in stage 4 of the diagram, all schools we work with, across the country, are being asked to complete the online questionnaire. So we would like to politely ask you to complete this simple survey based on the provision you have received from Premier Education Group this year. Your PEG Area lead will provide more information if you require it.

The CQI process has been underpinned by elements of the Ofsted Common Inspection Framework (CiF). The process is not solely about the performance management of Activity Professionals; it’s how we support our individual Area Leaders and, with the data we gather, how this then supports an overall national view for CQI.

Thank you.
