    Physical Education (PPA)

    Since the introduction of Planning, Preparation and Assessment (PPA) in 2005, Central Coaching and Sports Academy has been working alongside schools to meet the demand for a quality and professional providers of PE.

    Our long- and short-term planned, expertly delivered PE lessons provide schools with a cost effective and education-focused solution to PPA cover. With the option of multiple coaches to provide the simultaneous release of teachers during PPA time, Central Coaching and Sports Academy can ensure that all children are given the best opportunity to experience high-quality learning.

    We pride ourselves on the quality of our PE lessons, having been through rigorous training and observations with the Birmingham Learning and Assessment Service, to ensure our lessons cover all aspects of National Curriculum.

    We always strive to be the best, as we understand we are a positive role model to the children we teach. Our approach to teaching is driven from the will to succeed within schools. We aim to fit into a school as a teacher, not
a coach, and expect the children to respect and recognise us as this role through the quality of teaching provided. We are completely flexible and support schools in their quest to instill core values and standards throughout school.

All lessons are delivered to at least a good standard, with learning objectives, success criteria and assessments all in place.
