PARKOUR IN SCHOOLS
Play based physical education for school curricula and after school clubs
PARKOUR IN SCHOOLS
Access Parkour are the leading provider of parkour in Scotland.
We have the most extensive primary school program of education in the UK. Starting in 2013, we now deliver after school and curriculum programs in 40+ 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 that parkour provides.
PARKOUR IN P.E.
We have over 40 programs in schools across Edinburgh and Scotland where we teach either as part of Active Schools, or as a dedicated part of the P.E. curriculum.
Our P.E. 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.
The price of 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.
FREE PARKOUR EXPERIENCE
Access Parkour's school program is best experienced to understand our unique approach to Physical Education.
If you are interested in bringing parkour to your school, all you have to do is get in touch with us, and we will send you a PDF brochure outlining the different products we offer, and arrange a Free Parkour Experience for your school.
Access Parkour conducts a limited number of free parkour experiences per month so we ask you to be patient.
If you would like to go ahead and book a parkour experience directly without a trial - then email us and we will arrange one for you.
The parkour experience will consist of up to 3 hours of introductory parkour classes suitable for children from P3-7. This is normally split into 4 x 40 minute sessions for around 30 students at a time on a mixture of bespoke parkour equipment and equipment outdoors or in a P.E. hall.
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.
P.E. specialists who wish to utilise parkour in their lessons.
P.E. 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. However, it can also take place at our purpose-built facility Room To Move in Edinburgh.
