Our annual Primary PE Conference took place on Thursday 30 January 2020 at the Kent Events Centre, with over 170 delegates from primary PE leads, head teachers and governors. During the day delegates found out about the revised Ofsted framework, ways to engage the local community and the power of PE and sport. Delegates had the opportunity to attend a number of briefing sessions throughout the day giving delegates new ideas and inspirations to take back to the classroom.
