Physical Education, Sport and Health plays a vital role in enthusing and inspiring children and young people to participate fully and develop a life long love of physical activity.

Our aim is to ensure every child leaves school physically literate, inspired and enthusiastic about participating in physical activity and with the knowledge, skills and motivation to equip them to feel good about themselves.

What’s New?

PE Scheme of Work


A planning and teaching resource that is in line with changes to the Ofsted Framework and a shift in how schools are wanting to deliver Physically Education both locally and nationally.

The Rainbow Programme


The Programme utilises Growth Mindset, Mindfulness, Yoga and Yoga Therapy to support young people in bringing their physical and emotional body into balance to restore health and wellbeing.

I have spent the past 12 years working within primary school PE, Sport and Physical Activity. During this time I have taken on a number of roles from PE Subject Leader, EVC and PE Teacher to my current role of advising and delivering training for all school staff. I spent the past four years working as a specialist PE Teacher for Wirral Local Authority before moving to EdsentiaI in December 2015. I currently lead a team of teachers, coaches and specialists in the delivery of Edsentials’ PE, Sport and Physical Activity Programme and Lead the School Swimming Programme in Wirral. I have a real passion for PE and Sport and I have experienced first hand how it can transform the lives of young people.

I have spent the past 7 years working within Primary and Secondary schools across Cheshire West and Chester in a number of roles, ranging from Teaching Assistant, Class Teacher, PE Subject Leader and Specialist Sports Coach to my current role of delivering PE and CPD for school staff.

Having only left the Classroom in 2017 and joined the Edsential team in January 2018, I have now taken the opportunity to work full-time within my biggest passion: Helping children to be active and achieve success through PE, sport and physical activity.

I started working as a primary school teacher in 2014 after completing a BSc Sports Coaching degree and a PGCE. Having been a PE Subject Leader for the last 3 years, I have experienced first-hand what is expected of schools and the running of the PE curriculum.

I joined the Edsential team in September 2017 and have taken on a number of roles including the delivery of PE lessons; mentoring teachers to develop their PE teaching skills and confidence; and I am now lead member of staff for JASS (Junior Assessment Scheme for Schools), a progressive learning programme for primary school aged children, similar to the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

I am passionate about making a difference to young peoples’ lives and hope to do this through PE, Sport and outdoor learning.

Our Impact

School Testimonials

Teacher at St Peter's Primary School

“Very beneficial, lots of assistance and support in all areas of need. Helpful and kind approach from the Edsential staff member with a vast knowledge in the subject area. I am now more confident with how to challenge and stretch all children, how to include all, even those on a bench without kit. Outstanding knowledge and practise from the tutor.” Teacher – St Peter’s Primary School

Deborah Richard, Headteacher at Cathcart Street Primary School

``We are delighted with the impact Edsential have had in a short time on our PE and Sport provision. We already have a clear action plan in place to improve participation and enjoyment, based on pupil voice survey. Two assemblies have already got the pupils interested and enthused again in P.E, and as an SLT, we are confident in the quality, delivery, progression and assessment of our curriculum P.E.``

Teacher at Hillside Primary School

“Lots of positive ideas – the Curriculum Support model is a great supportive tool which has developed my teaching of PE!”
