National Curriculum: We are in a position to offer schools PPA cover for the teachers. The National Curriculum support has enabled schools to provide a structured coaching scheme of work covering all areas of Physical Education. The staff of ECC UK hold qualifications of a National BTEC Diploma that allow them to offer coaching sessions covering a variety of sports that include Football, Rugby, Hockey, Dance and Athletics. Programmes within schools are based on a six-week period i.e. one half-term. We currently work over 120 hours per week in various schools offering this service.
PPA SPORTS COVER
In order to achieve high standards and expectations, we communicate on a regular basis with the school and ensure a member of staff from the school (teaching assistant) is available to offer support to allow smaller groups for the children to work in. This encourages team building and helps the children to work together. We work closely with the PE Co-ordinator to establish a programme for the coaches to utilise throughout the school year. In addition, we offer weekly lesson plans to demonstrate learning objectives and success criteria that the children are working towards. The coach in charge of delivering the sessions works with the TA to discuss the children’s improvements and areas of development. This takes place at the end of the six week programme
‘They really engage the children; they are very inventive and enthusiastic. The children’s wellbeing is high during these sessions.’

Elite are experts in providing Quality Sports Coaching to many Nursery/Primary/Secondary Schools in Kent where we have forged strong successful relationships. We have been involved in many Ofsted inspections and have always worked closely with schools to ensure that Physical Education standards have been exceeded.
Here are some of the comments made by inspectors from schools we work with:
“You know why it is important to keep yourselves fit and healthy, and you enjoy the physical activities the school organises for you. This is one of the best things about your school” (Mundella Primary School)
“Curriculum enrichment is particularly strong and a good emphasis on sports”. (Lympne Primary School)
" Visiting specialist teachers provide valued expertise to enhance curriculum provisions in their subjects" (Sellindge Primary School)
