The PE Life Skills Award

Reward students for the development of life skills through PE.


What is the PE Life Skills Award?

The PE Life Skills Award allows you to assess and recognise pupils for building skills in PE that impact on their resilience, collaboration, leadership, independence and confidence.

Backed by Leadership Skills Foundation   Leadership Skills Foundation logo

Based on our hugely popular My Personal Best programme, we have created PE Life Skills Award programmes for primary, secondary and SEND. Each one is fully accredited by Leadership Skills Foundation so pupils are recognised with formal awards for their progress. If you choose to purchase the PE Life Skills Award you will complete the transaction through the Leadership Skills Foundation website.

Read this inspiring case study from ALP Nuneaton about how PELSA has helped their pupils. You can also read further secondary and special school case studies here.

Engagement in PE is now fantastic. It has improved attendance, behaviour and attitudes to learning across the board.
