PEpedagogy believes that Physical Education has a very positive effect on improving the life-chances of children and young people. An outstanding Physical Education programme has a fundamental impact on student learning and wellbeing whilst helping students to create lifelong sporting habits. PEpedagogy is focussed on improving teaching and learning in PE to enhance student outcomes for all stakeholders in Educational organisations. Great Physical Education lessons improve the performances and the learning experience for students. PEpedagogy wants to ensure that all students make outstanding progress in Physical Education.
