My Personal Best

Designed to support your planning and delivery of a life skills PE curriculum.

What is My Personal Best?

My Personal Best is an approach that enables all young people to flourish in PE, school and life – now and in the future. Through teacher and learner resources and a flexible training package, My Personal Best supports teachers to explicitly plan for and deliver a life skills PE curriculum.

How does it work?

Based on the multi-ability model that identifies five types of ability (or learning domains), My Personal Best focuses on 24 specific, non-physical life skills. These skills are developed through physical activities and contribute to each of the five abilities. This supports the personal development and physical literacy journey of all pupils.

The My PB package

Hard copy and digital resources for teachers and pupils and a range of training options specific to your phase will support you, wherever you are on your journey to a life skills PE curriculum. 

Our new PE life Skills Award goes hand in hand with My Personal Best, supporting you to recognise and reward your pupils for their progress in developing a range of life skills.

The resource is also embedded within the interactive teaching and learning resource of our primary partner, Complete PE.

Sean Doyle, Head of PE at Shenley Brook End School said:

"Physical Education is now starting to meet the needs of the next generation. My PB and the Youth Sport Trust opened our eye's as to how we can begin the journey to a more enriching and purpose-built curriculum and we have flown from there. Our young people are more alert to the need and opportunity for varied sport and physical activity including how they can build transferable life-skills, a direct outcome from our innovative curriculum."

Janet Conley, Headteacher at St Finbar's Catholic Primary School in Toxteth said:

"We decided to introduce the My Personal Best programme to the whole school as we were keen to embed the teaching of the life skills through PE and other subjects. We have found that it has already had a positive effect on their vocabulary, they are getting more daily exercise and any behaviour issues have also greatly improved."
