Option 3 – My Personal Best delivered by Youth Sports Trust

My Personal Best Primary is a one day course for primary school headteachers and the PE lead. It is a whole school approach to teaching and learning in PE, where life skills and values, such as cooperation, responsibility and resilience are taught explicitly through practical PE. It explores life skills in practical ways in PE, helping children to recognise the skills and transfer them to other lessons, to life in school and their wider lives – now and for the future, so they can be the best they can be in every way.
