WMPESS Conference: Final keynote speaker announcement
This year's WMPESS conference will be held on 12th November in Edgbaston. For those who have been following the journey of this exciting event, you will probably know that two of our keynote speakers have already been announced.
Our final keynote speaker for this year's conference has now been confirmed and we are delighted to announce that Greg Dryer will be presenting on 'Supporting all your pupils in developing a physical activity habit'.
In this keynote you will have a chance to think about:
- The key messages children hear about physical activity and whether or not they are effective
- How we might be able to present physical activity in a more inclusive way to support more children
- How this would play out in curriculum content and in school sport and physical activity
Greg will also be leading a workshop: Defining (and staying in) our lane.
He explains: “Physical education, school sport and physical activity is pulled from pillar to post by policy makers, the media and various other powerful agencies. As a result, this important area of school life gets confused and confusing. This can feel overwhelming for PE leads as they try to deliver on a vast range of aims and objectives.
“In this interactive workshop you'll have time to reflect on what you really value in order to streamline your work.
“You should leave the workshop with a clear vision and roadmap that should make you feel confident and energised in your role.”
