Cambridgeshire County Council PE Advisory Service, in partnership with Living Sport, and the Cambridgeshire Sport & Education Partnership is excited to organise the 2019 Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Primary Schools' PE Conference.

The event will focus on the holistic contribution that well planned and delivered Physical Education can have on young people, particularly with respect to emotional, social and mental Health outcomes, as well as the more accepted physical outcomes.

There will be a combination of inspiring keynote presentations from internationally recognised experts and applied/practical workshops, all of which will leave teachers excited and emboldened about the impact that PE can have in making children's lives better.
