PPA Cover

Our PPA cover service allows your school to meet its obligations to provide staff PPA, whilst providing your students with high quality sports coaching.


The need for PPA

Maintained schools need to ensure their staff’s timetables include a minimum of ten per cent of teaching time that is set aside for planning, preparation and assessment time (PPA). This time is invaluable for preparing high quality lessons and feedback, as well as providing opportunities for professional collaboration.

However, PPA time can also present schools with the challenge of covering sports-based lessons, often with non-specialist staff. With the best will in the world, this can lead to low quality lessons in which students don’t make the progress they could.

Wiltshire Sports Academy can help schools with this dilemma, by providing high quality cover and coaching sessions.
