Parkour in Schools
WHAT WE DO
Access Parkour are the leading provider of Parkour in Scotland.
We have the most extensive primary school program of education in the UK. Beginning in 2013, we now deliver After School and Curriculum programs in 30+ schools across Edinburgh and Scotland
We provide both Teacher Education and Direct Delivery to students. Many schools choose to use both services to help both staff and students understand the benefits Parkour provides.
Our Teacher Education program ‘Risk and Play through the lens of Parkour’ aims to give teachers the tools they need to facilitate parkour style play in the playground.
It is designed for :
Primary school teachers who want further guidance on how to facilitate movement games and play in the playground.
Teaching assistants who want more confidence analysing risk in the playground.
PE specialists who wish to utilise Parkour in their lessons
PE teachers considering becoming fully qualified to teach Parkour
The 8 hour program is best delivered over the course of one day in a primary school. Although can also take place at our purpose built facility Room to Move in Edinburgh.
Course costs begin at £120 + VAT per person for a full day of a coaching as well as all the teaching resources you need to teach 10 play based PE sessions using Parkour skills.
We have over 40 programs in schools across Edinburgh and Scotland delivering either as part of Active Schools or as a dedicated part of PE curriculum.
Our PE program is designed to introduce children to the movements of Parkour. It improves their confidence moving in concrete and playground environments and it helps them develop risk awareness.
When providing feedback on the sessions children say they:
Are better at moving
Are more confident
Felt safe at Parkour
The 10 week program is designed to be delivered to either Level 1 or Level 2 CfE students and provides feedback sheets that connect the lesson plans to Health and Wellbeing outcomes.
Direct delivery to a class depends on the location and kit requirements hire but can cost between £400 - £700 + VAT for a 10 week course.
