PPA Cover

How is your PE delivered in your school?

Are your pupils being effectively educated during PPA cover?

Do you employ a sports coaching company?

Are your sports coaches meeting industry minimum standards and committed to delivering high quality PE Lessons and school sport?

Here at RB Gym & Sport we believe that by using our services to cover your PPA you will be enriching your delivery of PE throughout your school allowing your teaching staff to ensure they are meeting all demands on pupil performance for literacy and numeracy.

PPA cover is something that all schools need and can be covered in a number of ways.

Sports Coaches

Sports coaches are often a less expensive ineffective way of covering PPA. Sport coaches often lack the skills and knowledge to deal with challenging behaviour required to control a class. Sport coaches often lack the knowledge of how to follow National Curriculum requirements or follow education requirements. They rarely have any experience in school or educational settings and as a result they can create more problems than they solve.

Sport Educators

Sport Educators process the skills and knowledge to ensure that your pupils are meeting National Curriculum requirements and are able to use a number of strategies to cope with any challenging behaviour which will ensure the cover of your PPA is as smooth and undisturbed as possible. They are also able to differentiate each lesson to meet the needs of all learners whilst assessing the children's progress. They are a reliable cost effective way of covering PPA cover and reduces any problems that may arise when using cheaper less experienced alternatives.

"The service is extremely professional and all sports coaches are approachable and flexible. The quality of coaching is excellent. Since using RB Gym as a sports provider we have seen an increase in PE enjoyment and more pupils are taking part in sporting activities outside of their PE lessons. The after school clubs are a great success. The pupils particularly enjoy Archery Club."
