Splats Circus skills days are devised by Stephen Richards P.E B.Ed Hons, developing from his dissertation into how to encourage participation in sports. This has lead to 1000’s of schools running the circus day program both as a fun and challenging day but also as a way to incorporate circus into their PE curriculum.
Every Splats Circus day includes:
Circus Teaching book and lesson guides
Free Family workshop and teacher training
