“The PE Passport is without a doubt the best use of sports funding we have spent.” - Headteacher, CHPS
Designed by Primary school teachers specialising in Primary PE, the brand new Primary PE Passport is delighted to be exhibiting at the Education Show this year for the first time (Stand GG91).

Get Set’s Road to Rio Challenge is calling on schools to take up an inspirational challenge: get active and imaginative by travelling the full distance from London to Rio - 9,298km in total.

This could be running, swimming, walking or cycling – it could even be the distance travelled during a game of dodgeball or the walk to and from school. This is part of Get Set’s commitment to a fitter, healthier, sportier Britain, getting involved with events such as Olympic Day.

What a great idea: a bible for PE resources shared by a number of PE teachers around the globe. This shared folder is on the ever-popular online ‘cloud’ called Dropbox.

Not all resources will be for you, and I would recommend you always adapt the file you will use to your style, but it is a great base to develop a resource from. A group of 74 educators collaborating and sharing within a rich resource!
