Founded in 2017, PPA Covered was established with the sole purpose of providing and implementing Primary Schools all over Yorkshire and the North of England with PPA cover. We cover schools in the Leeds, Sheffield, York Hull, Manchester, Liverpool and Newcastle with plans to expand across the rest of the United Kingdom.
Full-time primary teachers are guaranteed time for their Planning, Preparation, and Assessments (PPA). This required period allows the staff to apply and maintain the National Curriculum in their classrooms.
With PPA Covered, teachers don’t have to split their time between extracurricular classes and can focus solely on their subject. We provide teams of committed education specialists who surpass standards and mentor children in a variety of topics.
We provide PPA Cover for Key Stage One and Key Stage Two that aligns with the National Curriculum. We offer a selection of dance classes, physical education courses, modern foreign languages, computing lessons, art and more. These sessions are offered every week and year round.
Dance sessions are a fun way to promote activity in students. Our lessons also incorporate topics from the subjects’ students learn in school to strengthen their overall understanding. Those students who find they are struggling to concentrate in class can participate in an active and physical way to express themselves.
We host a selection of dance sessions and themes such as Sounds of Spain, Jazzed About Jazz, African Rhythms, Walk Like an Egyptian, Feelings, and Hello Neighbor.
Art and Design courses are often devalued due to their time consumption and lack of staffing. We deliver teachers who create engaging, productive, and dynamic lessons. These plans are both in-line with the National Curriculum, and for the students to express their artistic talents.
At PPA Covered, our weekly Physical Education plans are created according to the requirements of the National Curriculum. The staff plans and executes PE lessons based on the current school’s model, or independently depending on the school’s needs. The primary PE coach works to build meaningful relationships with the students and encourage them to be more active.
In the modern world, it is crucial to both understand and use technology. Our computing courses allow students to engage with technology so that they can use it for their education. Many future classes in Primary and Secondary Schools require the use of computers, iPads, and other various tools. At PPA Covered, we understand that it is crucial for students to build a foundation using technology to succeed.
PPA Covered focuses on creating and delivering advanced foreign language lessons in Primary Schools. Our staff can plan lessons based on the Spanish and French languages that align with both the Key One and Key Two stages of the National Curriculum. At the Primary School age, children are more likely to learn and apply a foreign language, so we ensure they are receiving creative and differentiated lessons.
Providing engaging education to children is at the heart of what we do. We provide Primary Schools with qualified teachers and lessons tailored to specific subjects. Our staff is dedicated to creating educational experiences for students and covering all of a school’s PPA Cover needs.
