PPA Cover

PPA – time set aside for teachers to carry out planning, preparation and assessment activities – is vital.

But like many ideas that are great in practice, the real-world outcomes can produce a number of problems.

In an era of budget cuts and ever-increasing demands on pupil performance from governors, parents and local governing bodies, schools often struggle to find cost-effective, high-quality PPA cover.

Aspire understands the vexed question of PPA cover and has developed an inclusive approach that engages all of your pupils in high quality learning and PE lessons.

As the leading provider of PPA solutions in the Midlands, you can be assured that Aspire will deliver the highest quality lessons at all times.

Our Sports and Physical Activity Educators possess the skills and qualifications to manage full classes of children, meeting the needs of all learners and coping with challenging behaviour.

This means you and your senior management team can be secure in the knowledge that you’ll be provided with a high quality, reliable, education-focused service that improves your pupils’ skills and confidence, while consistently following best practice guidance on the effective use of agencies in PE and school sport.

If you feel that it's time for Aspire to make time for you, contact us for further details.


Please note that the Association for Physical Education (afPE) and the Secretary of State does not consider employing coaches or specialist teachers to cover PPA as a sustainable and effective use of the Primary and PE Sport Premium.

"The Primary PE and Sport Premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles."
