We love working with schools – sharing ideas and research into the benefits of Physically Active Learning (PAL). Our Active Learning Training, CPD and Support packages are proving popular with schools across the UK and abroad. The impact is instant and long-lasting – a great use of the PE and Sport Premium Funding for Primary Schools.
Many forward-thinking school leaders realise that our CPD sessions are great ways to implement the recommendations of the Chief Medical Officer and the Childhood Obesity Plan of Action.
According to the official website of the Olympic Movement: “Studies show that children who are physically fit are better at absorbing and retaining new information.” However, in many schools, PE loses out in the drive to improve standards in English and Mathematics. In our CPD sessions, we share innovative opportunities to combine Mathematics, English and other subjects with physical activity.
What is the Impact of our Staff Training and CPD?
School leaders, teachers and other adults:
- understand more about the landscape of health and education
- realise how easy it is to create PAL sessions that develop knowledge and skills in Mathematics, English and other subjects
- know more about engaging all children in their learning
Sessions are prepared and delivered by qualified Tagtiv8 teachers, based on the needs of your staff and learners.
