The afternoon session will be split into local area partnership meetings. 


1 - Physical Literacy - Delivered by Rebecca D'Arcy, YST (1 hour)

How we think, feel, move and connect with others during movement and physical activity shapes our physical literacy. Nurturing these influences helps us to develop a positive relationship with movement and physical activity, building the foundations for an active life. As leaders and practitioners of PE, school sport and physical activity, you play a critical role in impacting the physical literacy journey of young people. In this workshop, we’ll unpick the concept of physical literacy and translate what this means and how it looks within your school environment to ensure positive experiences for all young people.

2 - PE Coordinator Orientation - Owen Denovan (2 hours)

This workshop aims to give PE leaders clear processes in order to assess, challenge and adapt current provision as well as new ideas and resources to improve the quality of PE, physical activity and school sport.

3 - Trauma Workshop - 2 hours - Delivered by Streetgames (2 hours)

The ACEs & TIPs workshop explores Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) & the short & longer term impact on Young People’s health. The stress response & impact ACEs have on the body. Our role in using sport to build resilience and starting to think about how to build a ‘Trauma Informed approach’ in sport. Based on the latest research of health & wellbeing, this workshop will give learners a foundation of what is going on in a young person’s body, the short and longer term impact this has on the behaviour and how we can make small changes by being Trauma informed to achieve better life outcomes for young people through the wholly inclusive and universal power of sport.

Within this workshop, participants will explore the 5 Trauma Informed Principles of: Safety, Trust, Collaboration, Choice & Empowerment.
