Through delivering PE in primary schools since 2011, Dan and James, two Gloucestershire-based friends, developed quite the passion for the delivery and assessment of outstanding PE. Their work with PE Pal’s sister company, Atlas Sports, took them far and wide, delivering physical education in many schools, as well as delivering CPD for teachers across Gloucestershire and the South West.
A couple of years on, and with the development of their paper-based schemes well underway, PE Pal was born! Assessment, pupil reports and high energy PE sessions were now at the forefront of their attention. So, the assembly of the incredible PE Pal team took place. A team of: Primary school teachers, professional sports coaches, elite sports performers and school leaders, came together in 2012/13, and development began.
In 2018, the official launch of PE Pal in its current guise took place. Now, the ever-evolving PE Pal app is well underway, with thousands of pupils across the UK being taught from 50+ schemes of work, as well as being assessed weekly. The early stage vision in 2011 of seeing the delivery of outstanding PE, being paired with up-to-date pupil assessment are now a reality, and Dan and James, along with their team, are thrilled that PE Pal has been prevalent in this movement.
