PESSPA Training

The PESSPA (Physical Education, School Sport & Physical Activity) Alliance working in partnership with Learn Sheffield and Mercia TSA submitted a successful bid to DfE (in 2019/20) in relation to a project to improve the quality of PE teaching and leadership.

This partnership will recruit a team of Specialist PESSPA Leaders and Champion Schools to work with identified schools and share good practice across the city. This project has been delayed by COVID but the work will now take place between November 2020 and March 2021.

The sessions outlined below are available for free to all Sheffield schools and academies. You can book onto the sessions using the links provided.
