The resource needed to be user friendly and easy for teachers to understand to enable them to teach high quality PE on a regular basis.
Complete P.E. has encouraged a whole staff approach to teaching PE.
The Subject Leaders’ Area provides teachers with continued support and confidence to teach lessons where pupils learn, progress and most importantly enjoy being physically active!

Teachers are now willing to teach PE rather than leaving it to a teaching assistant or avoiding teaching PE altogether.
Complete P.E. provides a clear progression of skills, which provides pupils with plenty of opportunities to experience a wide range of differentiated PE activities.
Pupils now find lessons informative and enjoyable and always feel that they are learning.
A tracking system is now in place to assess pupil’s progress which did not exist before. There is a consistent approach to teaching different skills and sports and pupils experience a greater variety of activities during PE lessons.
There is also a greater awareness and interest in PE across the school with a renewed focus on the importance of pupil’s health and wellbeing.
