With the Government continuing to invest in Primary Physical Education through the PE & Sport Premium it is the role of the  Plymouth School Sports Partnership to support schools to provide high quality opportunities and experience for pupils.

Primary teachers responsible for PE were joined by trainee primary teachers from Marjon with a range of workshops to choose from; gymnastics, dance, parkour, hockey, multi sports, frisbee, golf, invasion games, social media and school games mark.

The event provided a great opportunity for sharing good practice and networking amongst experienced teachers and those about to embark in the profession.

The event was supported by Attik Dance, Youth Sports Trust and Central Park Golf.
