Breaking Boundaries: Teaching Cricket in Primary Schools As summer fast approaches (hopefully bringing the sunny weather with it), so do the ‘summer sports’ in PE. Traditionally, these are activities such as athletics, tennis, rounders and cricket. Each of these activities comes with different challenges when teaching in primary schools. However, primary school teachers often see cricket as the most daunting of all these summer sports. Cricket is often seen as a very technical, elitist, and complex sport, requiring a high level of teacher expertise to deliver. It is also viewed as needing an e ..read more

Golfway – Creating Golfers of the Future Golf. It’s not a sport you hear about enough in schools – and the Golf Foundation is working to change that. But why is it that golf doesn’t seem to be on the PE radar? Of course, practically, it can be a challenge to teach. Not many schools have an 18-hole golf course at their disposal.

To help schools gain access to the world of golf, the Golf Foundation de ..read more

Girls Active 2023 At The PE Hub it is our core belief that physical education plays a critical role in developing well-rounded, healthy children and young people.  However, it is unfortunately the case that many children don’t get the opportunities to develop a lifelong enjoyment for games, athleticism, and physical activity, and in particular girls, as has been highlighted in a new study by the Youth Sports Trust. Improving levels of enjoyment and participation is a cause that’s especially close to our hearts. Over 33% of female pupils surveyed in England said that they do not like takin ..read more
