Confirmed Speaker –
Education Consultant, PE Scholar
Lee is a Head of PE at Upton Court Grammar School in Slough. A few years ago, Lee was on the verge of leaving the PE teaching sector and was experiencing real frustration with his role and, specifically, with the feeling that what he had entered the profession for was not the impact he was actually achieving. Over the lockdown periods of 2020 and 2021, Lee took to reading and researching concepts such as physical literacy, the concept curriculum, assessment rubrics and the importance of learner voice.
Lee has published his own book titled ‘ Is PE in Crisis – Leading a Much-Needed Change in Physical Education’. Lee’s book encapsulates the journey of one head of PE in his pursuit of trying to design, implement and evaluate a more effective approach towards physical education curriculum design, promote inclusive pedagogies and a holistic approach to assessment.
