The FA’s Primary Teachers’ Award has been designed to help various groups with a basic awareness of the contribution of an invasion game (football) to the Physical Education Purpose of Study at KS1 and KS2 linking relevant subject content to support pupil learning in: 

  • Movement
  • Multi-directional games
  • Directional games
  • Modified games
  • Helping with a team.

The course presents ideas for lessons using games based around movement skills for 5–11 year olds and the basic principles of invasion games. The tutors show how differentiation and assessment for learning can be embedded in PE lessons and also give guidance to those teachers who might run a school team.

Throughout the course, the tutors will also explain the importance of high quality PE in schools in order to develop confidence, self-esteem and belief amongst children and also the benefits of PE in raising academic achievement across other school subjects.
