Association for Physical Education
In their own words “promote and maintain high standards and safe practice in all aspects and at all levels of physical education, school sport and physical activity influencing developments at national and local levels that will impact on pupils’ physical health and emotional well-being”.
Lots of free resources on their website from free poster downloads, to access to their sample copy of “Physical Education Matters” the AfPE termly journal in magazine format. The termly journal shares research, information and practice and aims to ‘inspire, educate and entertain members by sharing information.
To access the full range of resources you need to be a member – schools can purchase department membership or individuals can purchase their own.
There are recommended reading lists specific to PE which you could use to guide your development of your subject and curriculum knowledge.
The association helps you to keep up to date with current and any new policy changes relating to PE and School Sport. There are courses you can sign up to attend, to develop your own subject and curriculum knowledge too.
The Physical Education Matters journal is a place to see how other practitioners are putting research into practice and the effectiveness of this. It is a great place for collaboration and the sharing of ideas and best practice.
I use the subject association to keep myself up to date with policy and the implications on practice in PE. I also use their resources when planning and delivering PE subject training to enhance our PE trainees’ knowledge and understanding. There is a great free resource in poster format entitled ‘making Physical Education safe’ which I highly recommend as a clear visual for all areas to consider when planning and delivering PE and School Sport.
ECTs should use AfPE to gauge professional development courses available to them, to guide their reading and research, to enhance their understanding of safe practice in PE, School Sport and Physical Activity and gain ideas from other schools and PE departments and colleagues re: effective delivery of PE and School Sport.
The PE hub – a members site which gives you access to a range of resources.

Sports Plan is a members site which gives you access to a huge range of drills which can be used when teaching sports from across the PE curriculum.
