Widnes Vikings have announced a partnership with iPEP, an online platform that enhances the planning, delivery and assessment of physical education in schools.
The partnership will allow the Vikings’ community staff to plan and assess their school sports delivery online, whilst showcasing the impact and development of each child that participates in Sky Try, Game Changer, Dance and Multi-Sports lessons. Widnes Vikings will be providing specific Rugby League lessons for all iPEP users to support the growth of rugby league participation in primary schools.
iPEP users can plan a full year of P.E. curriculum, with specific lesson plans that are inclusive for all pupils of all abilities.
Vikings Sports Foundation’s Head of Education, Liam Clark, commented: “iPEP is a fantastic addition to our schools offer for next year. It will provide our community coaches information that will support us to meet the needs of each of our schools, whilst allowing us to provide schools with the impact that our P.E. lessons have had on their children.
“In addition, iPEP is giving us the opportunity to spread the word of rugby league with more schools across the country, as we are now able to access rugby league lesson plans and how-to-videos.”
Craig Wainwright, from iPEP, added: “We are extremely proud and excited to announce our partnership with Widnes Vikings. Together we will be providing resources for schools within the local area to plan, deliver and assess their P.E. sessions.
“Widnes Vikings will be writing rugby league curriculum for key stage 1 and key stage 2, with additional resources such as – teaching tips, progression points and how-to videos.
“We are excited to start working together, and we are highly confident that this is the next big step towards improving the quality of P.E across the country.”
