Enhancing Quality in Primary Physical Education (EQUIPPE)

The project activities include the development and implementation of an innovative online CPD package for primary P.E. teachers. This will increase competencies, skills and confidence to teach high quality P.E.

The CPD resources will be developed via collaboration between partners and wider relevant networks and stakeholders (e.g. primary schools, HEIs) to ensure best practice and appropriateness to a wide range of settings and needs.

These networks will develop over the life of the project to ensure that the resource reflects contextual factors and best practice.

The CPD resource will improve the quality of P.E. delivered in primary schools by:

  1. educating P.E. teachers (irrespective of level of experience or whether generalists or specialists) in the importance of physical literacy;
  2. increasing confidence to develop, deliver and manage P.E. sessions;
  3. improve professional practice via the sharing of knowledge, skills and understanding of high quality P.E.
